We would like to welcome all our visitors to the BMS website. We have created our school website to help parents, students, community members, and people wanting to learn more about our school be able to get important and timely information. We are relying more and more on electronic communication to let you know what is going on in our school. The Principal's Corner will serve as a monthly newsletter of information of importance to students and parents. We have included a variety of links to facilitate the sharing of information from our school.
We are proud of our Middle School for the quality interaction and support among students, parents and staff. We want to make this website an efficient and effective source of information for you. We welcome your feedback and input to help make this an effective tool of information.

To help us group students for more effective instruction, we have switched teachers for our period 6 math classes. Grade 7 students will work with Mr. Pennell. Grade 8 students will work with Mr. Candelaria or Ms. Morey.
Ms. Morey is hosting a Math Night next Wednesday, October 29, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in her classroom at BMS. Ms. Morey’s students and their families are invited to this session to work on math activities together.
We now have Study Halls available for students in all grade levels. Students may elect to have a Study Hall or they may be assigned to Study Hall if they need support on completing assignments.
If you are interested in helping a student as a one-on-one study partner, please let me know. We have students who need help during daily Study Halls which take place during period 2 (8:50-9:42), period 3 (9:45-10:37), and period 7 (2:00-2:52).
