Staying On Track With Summer Reading

BMS Librarian Ms. Woznick is blogging about summer reading all summer long.

This week: Now that we’re past the halfway mark for the summer, your child has potentially started a summer reading book but perhaps hasn’t finished it. Some readers just rip through books, but if your child has a little trouble staying on track, we have some suggestions. Read "Staying on Track With Summer Reading" for some tips.

Next time: Graphic Novels!

More information about summer reading requirements, book lists, and more is at the BMS Summer Reading website.

Summer Math

We are asking students to maintain their math skills over the summer by completing math packets and/or using IXL.com.

Please note that completion of the packet is required for students entering grade 8 and will be turned in on the second day of school.

BoxTops for Education at BMS

The PTO welcomes any BoxTops for Education clips you have. All BoxTop funding directly benefits BMS programs funded in part by the PTO.

There is a BoxTops container in the main office!

1 Week to Fall Sports Registration Deadline

If your child wants to participate in the fall cross country (Gr. 5-8) or field hockey (gr. 7 & 8 only) programs at the middle school level -- or if you have a child entering BHS who plans to play a fall sport -- you must register them over the summer at at bhsonline.org. Look on the menu bar for Activities and choose Athletics Home and then Registration, or click here to go directly to the registration page.

The deadline for registration, receipt of payment and physicals is THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 2019.

Before any student can participate, the following requirements must be met:
  • All students MUST turn in a copy of their most recent physical to the Athletic Office by August 1, 2019. Physicals are good for 13 months from the date of the exam. Students with expired physicals will not be permitted to participate in practices or games until a new physical is turned in.
  • Parent/guardian and the student-athlete must complete an online concussion course in the past 12 months. The free course can be found at http://nfhslearn.com/courses/38000
  • Payments must be received in the BHS Athletic Office by August 1, 2019. Pre-payment is required. If your son/daughter does not make a team, you will be refunded. Checks received will be shredded or if paying online, you will be reimbursed. If paying online, please send a copy of your confirmation page to the Athletic Office. This will speed up the process.

Supply Lists

Supply lists for the 2019-2020 school year are now available.

Go to folder with all 4 lists

Please note that because lockers are smaller than traditional ones, and due to use of technology instead of large textbooks in many cases, we recommend your child use a smaller cinch sack instead of a larger backpack for bringing in items from home every day.
