Greetings from Mr. Aquadro

Mr. Dana Aquadro, Assistant Principal

I’m honored to take the next step of my career at the Bellows Falls Middle School. Middle schoolers are a great age group; it’s a time when students are beginning to figure out their passions and take steps to turn their dreams into realities.  As assistant principal, I’ll be able to work with all of the students and families for many years. I’m delighted to continue contributing to Bellows Falls and the surrounding communities.

BFMS Citizenship Award

Every year, the Bellows Falls Middle School faculty nominates two outstanding eighth graders for the Citizenship Award – this is the highest honor given to a student at BFMS as it recognizes strength of character, the courage to do what’s right, leadership, positivity at school and in the community, and civic engagement. Congratulations to the 2018 recipients of the BFMS Citizenship award, Sapphire Joy and Thomas Lynch. Both students received a plaque during this morning’s award ceremony and their names will be engraved on a plaque outside of the auditorium!
