Bellows Falls Middle School Band Performs in Washington, DC

BandOn 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!

20j5yjoWe 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!

BFMS collects 2,280 food items for local food shelf

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!
