Parents - Reminder

The deadline for online remote learning was in August.  The only exception to go remote learning at this point is with a Medical Doctor’s note stating why in-person learning is no longer the best choice for your student.  However there are individual exceptions based circumstances.

 

Book Fair

Save the dates for November 9-22 because the BMS Scholastic Book Fair is back! 

The annual BMS Book Fair will be entirely online this year. From November 9- Nov. 22, our online fair link will be live on the Middle School district homepage as well as the Belgrade Middle School Library/ Media Center Facebook page. You’ll be able to purchase books, supplies, and fun accessories online, and your order will be shipped directly to your home. This is a great way to get some of your Christmas shopping done! Another online fair feature is a Virtual Fair, so you and your kids can shop by grade level, browse titles, and even “meet” popular authors all from the comfort of home!  Best of all, you support the BMS Library as 25% of profits go back to the library for new books!

The Belgrade Middle School Counseling Department, along with BMS PTK are sponsoring a Tree of Giving for Belgrade Middle School families, Belgrade Ace Hardware, Albertsons, Mackenzie River Pizza, and Belgrade Middle School front office will host the middle school family trees from November 9th - December 1st. During that time ornaments will hang on the trees with gift information for a child (5th-8th grade) in need during the holiday season. Any person coming into one of the locations may choose an ornament, record the number on the register, and then return the gifts unwrapped, labeled, with the tag number to any of the designated Giving Tree locations. These gifts will then be distributed to those children and families in need.  Your help and generosity is greatly appreciated!!!
