Incoming Students & Parents: Welcome to the Bellows Falls Middle School! The New Student & Family Academy is a great way for incoming families to start the new school year. Students will meet teachers, connect with peers, and make their way through the school building before school begins. Attendance is not required, but strongly encouraged.
For parents, we will offer a two-day workshop hosted by the WNESU Family Liaison & Student Advocate, Missy Wilkins, Ph.D. If you plan on attending, please register online by clicking here.
Make this summer count with Summer @ A.I.M.! Swim at Echo Lake, enjoy a nature walk, explore local museums, visit Billings Farm, go bowling, and most of all – have fun! A.I.M.’s enrichment camp is an expansion of our afterschool program and activities are available to all BFMS students from July 5 to July 28. Camp will run Monday through Thursdays from 10am to 4pm (no Friday activities). This is the perfect way to expand your learning experience in addition to the academic summer school mornings – however, you do not need to be in summer school in order to participate! Registration forms must returned no later than June 3! [Register online: Click Here]
On Wednesday April 27th all BFMS students and teachers took part in “Walk @ Advisory Day” and did a full loop around Bellows Falls. As part of a Blue Cross Blue Shield “National Walk at Lunch Day” initiative, we set a goal and incorporated a fun walk around town in order to encourage our students to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Studies have found that regular walking, particularly at a brisk pace of 3 mph, can substantially reduce the risk of developing heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Additionally, simply performing 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five times a week has significant health benefits and can lower the risk of developing or dying from hypertension or type 2 diabetes, and improve the health of muscles, bones and joints. The weather’s getting warmer – don’t forget to walk!

In an effort to make it easier for parents and students to navigate the PowerSchool Parent Portal, on March 24, 2016 the way parents and students access assignments and grades has been improved. The changes were made after receiving feedback from parents, students, and teachers about simplifying the parent portal.
