On Tuesday April 15, 2015, the Bellows Falls Middle School Band performed at the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. After months of preparation, this was a dream come true for a group of talented musicians hailing from a small, rural town in Vermont. Led by BFMS band director, Stanley Rumrill, the students performed a list of songs chosen for this specific occasion. What an honor!
Congratulations to the BFMS Destination Imagination team for placing third at the Vermont D.I tournament for the Middle Level Improv Games and winning first place in the Instant Challenge! The team traveled to Burlington High School to compete against students from across Vermont! A big thanks to Mr. Cliff DesMarais for leading the group to victory this year. Destination Imagination is a national creative problem solving program that challenges students to work together!

Start designing your future now! 8th grade students that are part of the VSAC program were able to visit the new Vermont Tech/CCV building in Brattleboro. 6th grade students participated in a health careers exploratory provided by the Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center during science class!
We all got a BIG surprise during Friday’s Student of the Month assembly when a “renowned group of percussion soloists” joining the band for a special performance turned out to be none other than our teachers (Mr. Harris, Mrs. Morris, Mrs. Read, Ms. Davis)! A special thanks to Mr. Rumrill for orchestrating [pun intended] this fun-filled number!
After a month long food drive to benefit the Our Place Drop In Shelter, students from the Bellows Falls Middle School collected a total of 2,280 food items, doubling their original goal of 1,200. In what has now become an annual event, the drive culminated in a human chain that went around the school to symbolize the importance of giving to others.
“This is going to make a lot of people happy”, commented a sixth grader as he passed along each food item down a line that extended throughout the four levels of the middle school building. To build up an incentive, teachers developed a friendly competition between grades, with the winning team receiving a half-day of gym time and games. The results were very close with the 7th and 8th grade team collecting 1,116 food items and the 5th and 6th graders bringing in 1,164 – a 48 item difference!
