Dear BFMS Parents and Guardians,
As the calendar moves to August, it is time to begin thinking about the upcoming school year. I want to first welcome our new families to BFMS. We are excited to have you join the BFMS family! I usually send out an email every Friday during the school year, please make sure we have your preferred email on file and pass the word to other BFMS families. The purpose of these emails is to help keep you informed of upcoming events and other BFMS news.
If you are new to BFMS remember our New Family/Student Academy is on August 21. 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. Go to our school website http://bfmiddleschool.org/ for more information and to access the registration link.
Mark your calendar for Tuesday, August 29 which will be our Open House and Official Opening of our new green space! We will have hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and water served in our new green space from 5:00-7:00. Open House is from 4:30-7:30.
I will be sending out another email to inform you of the posting of Advisory Lists and to provide additional information. Please click here for the school supply list broken down by grade level.
Please consider volunteering some time by becoming a part of the Bellows Falls Middle School PTO. The PTO supports BFMS by enriching our students educational experiences by sponsoring numerous activities throughout the year. Our first meeting of the year will be Wednesday, September 6 at 5:30 PM in the Community Room, where we will be finalizing officers, discussing fundraising, especially the annual Ski Swap, and brainstorming other ways we help our BFMS students/families.
At 6:00, on August 28 Mr Gould and Mr Ferenc will host our sports meeting. If your child plans on participating in our athletic program please plan on attending this informative meeting.
