2019-2020 School Year Info

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Beverly Middle School year! 

We are so excited to begin and to continue this journey with our BMS community. Over this summer we have reflected on the opening of the school last year and how to make this year even better for our students and families. As we enter this new school year, we want to let you know that there are changes to the overall school schedule. This summer our staff has participated in numerous professional development opportunities. This includes continued emphasis on project based learning, co-teaching model, and innovative practices. In addition, a committee of administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, and support staff was formed in January of 2019 to focus on the culture at BMS. This work is never complete, but with countless hours over the summer, our team is ready to share our new mantra on opening day. We will spend each Monday to start the year with Mantra Mondays in which students will take part in lessons building community and incorporating our shared values as a learning community.

For all of our incoming grade 5 students and new families entering our school this year, we will have summer tours scheduled below:
  • Ayers and Hannah - August 13, 2019 4:30 P.M. - 5:30 P.M.
  • Centerville, Cove, and North Beverly - August 14, 2019 4:30 P.M. - 5:30 P.M.
  • New to BPS families/make up tour - August 21, 2019 4:30 P.M. - 5:30 P.M.
Team assignments and schedules are now available in ASPEN. Unfortunately, we will not honor team changes or teacher requests, as we believe all of our teams understand the middle school learner.

All new families should have received a welcome letter through ASPEN with directions on how to set up your parent portal. 

If you have not received this or need help accessing your ASPEN account, please contact Maddy August at and she will assist you.

Thank you, and we look forward to learning with our students on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. School doors open at 8:00 AM!

Have a great rest of the summer,

The BMS Administrative Team
