BMS Spotlight on Learning!

This week, we would like to shine our BMS Spotlight on our entire BMS Learning Community, Community Service Group, and Mrs. Oswald for their participation and organization with our recent drive for Ukraine. This past week was one of those weeks where we all shined bright. Words can not begin to express how grateful we were for all of your donations. We were able to fill the back of an entire box truck and proudly dropped off the items at Cardi’s furniture. A special thanks to Anderson Motors for the donation/use of their box truck. Truly a community event! 

This week, we would like to shine our BMS Spotlight on Mr. Stu Moran. Last week, Stu Moran worked with Ms. Amy to bring an amazing assembly to our 6th Graders. On Friday, Eli Wolff, Paralympian, presented on the importance of building a community of equity and inclusion. Great work Stu!

Do you know of a BMS Faculty/Staff/Student member that is shining bright? If you do, please complete the form below and we can include the nomination in an upcoming newsletter.
