OPEN TEAM MEETINGS
The Open Team Meetings held at BMS are opportunities for parents/guardians to come into school during the day to attend presentations by the team teachers. The team teachers provide updates for each of the 4 core academic areas by alerting parents to projects, long-term assignments, upcoming special events, trips, and more.

JOIN THE BMS ECO-SQUAD!
The goal of this club is to reduce BMS’s carbon footprint. The BMS Eco Squad will employ a variety of approaches to raise awareness and activate our school community. The students and advisers will plan and maintain recycling centers in the BMS cafeteria for plastics, paper and food composting. The club will investigate the waste/recycle stream to make sure BMS students and staff are properly handling, sorting and redirecting waste to the proper channels. This club's hope it to begin composting during lunch by the end of the school year.
