    BCMS Happenings

    Mr. McClure's Weekly Blog
    “The Principal’s Post”

    ANNOUNCEMENT DATE - Monday, May 23rd

    Please BCMS Main Office for reporting symptoms and/or confirmed cases of COVID.

    PLEASE NOTE:  This Friday, May 27th, will be the final day for students for the 2021-2022 academic year.

    THANK YOU!

    To close our final chapter to this year, I would like to end in the same manner I began, by expressing my appreciation.  Thank you for visiting our school’s website, following our activities and events, and showing your unwavering support for the students of our middle school this year.  From the opening day it has been a privilege for us to partner with you and your student(s) in their learning and growing throughout this year.

    We wish the Class of 2026 all the best as they leave us for BCHS this fall.  We look forward to welcoming back the Classes of 2027 (grade 8) and 2028 (grade 7), and we look forward to welcoming our newest class to BCMS . . . the Class of 2029 (grade 6)!

    THIS WEEK . . . THE WEEK OF MAY 23rd

    The final week of school is one that is always filled with nostalgia with what has been accomplished throughout the year. 

    As we enter this last, FULL, week, the regular BCMS class schedules give way to other “special” activities and events that are planned.  Those activities of note include the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade awards programs.

    The 6/7 awards day program will be in the afternoon of Wednesday, May 25th.  As much as we would like to make this an open event to the public, seating capacity in the gymnasium will not allow for this.

    The 8th grade awards day program will be the morning of Friday, May 27th, and will be in the BCHS auditorium.  Start time for the program is 9:30AM, and this program IS open to the general public.  (The BCHS Auditorium doors will be open for guests beginning at 9AM.

    We anticipate that the awards program will last approximately 75-90 minutes. 

    At the conclusion of the awards program, there will be a time for picture taking for students and parents.  8th grade students will then return to the middle school to enjoy a pizza lunch together as a class.

    As indicated, only 8th grade students will be participating in the 8th grade awards program.  However, should younger BCMS siblings of current 8th grade students desire to attend the program, we would encourage their attendance.  We would ask the parents/guardians of these BCMS siblings to sign these students out from BCMS prior to 9AM to leave ample time to arrive at BCHS for the 9:30 awards day program start.

    TRIMESTER THREE REPORT CARDS

    Student report cards for the third trimester will be sent home with students at the end of the day of the final day of school on Friday.

    If available, individual student 2022 ILEARN results will also be sent home with Trimester 3 report cards.

    CHROMEBOOKS & SUMMER 2022

    This summer, BCCSC students in grades 1-11 will keep their school-issued Chromebooks. 

    The following documents explain how learning can continue over the summer, use time and content filters, what to do if a Chromebook is damaged, lost, or stolen, or if a student moves out of the district.
