French 8 Families

Attention French 8 students, parents and guardians!

As a capping event for our unit on "La cuisine française," we will join together on Thursday, October 24, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for a community supper.

The event will take place at BMS in the first floor cafeteria.

This will be a chance for students (with help from home) to make and share the dishes they have learned about and to celebrate French culture through its food.

Madame Diop, our new Grade 7 French teacher, will be joining us.

Please know that if you are not able to bring a dish, you are still welcome to attend. I will be making a few dishes myself, so there should be enough for everyone.

Questions? Contact Madame Faria at lfaria@beverlyschools.org.

Kate Allen's Visit

Author Kate Allen visited BMS yesterday from Minneapolis for 2 fantastic assemblies with our 7th and 8th graders. She talked about her book, The Line Tender, which is set locally and involves friends, family -- and sharks!

Students with Asthma & Severe Allergies

This is a friendly reminder from the Beverly Middle School Health Office.

If your child has severe asthma or life-threatening allergies, please send in an extra inhaler or EpiPen to be kept in the clinic at school. All medications kept in the health office require a signed parental/guardian medication form and a signed physician medication order by a licensed prescriber.

Students who need to carry their own inhalers or EpiPens must have written self-administration permission from the licensed prescriber and the parent/guardian. 

Attached is the Medication Administration Parent Information, a copy of Beverly Public Schools Physician Medication Order and Parental Consent.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us at (978) 921-6103 Option 7, or email jelder@beverlyschools.org, emoffett@beverlyschools.org or ktobyne@beverlyschools.org.
