We have limited pre-ordered items in limited sizes that you can purchase and take with you. We will have order forms at the tent. If you submit your order and payment (cash or check) on August 31st, we will have your order ready for pick up at Back to School night on September 14th. Spirit Wear order deadline is Thursday, September 14th.
*Lots of spirit opportunities to show your BBMS pride will be hosted by the PTA this school year!
Throughout the school year, the school reaches out to the PTA when they have a need for extra hands to lighten the load. This sign up will be ongoing throughout the school year and will be updated whenever a volunteer opportunity is available. We know your time is valuable!! Some opportunities, students may assist with also. Have a high schooler that needs NHS hours…. send them our way!!! www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0E4AACAC2DA7FA7-back
1st PTA Meeting of the 2017-2018 school year
Wondering what the PTA is all about? Wednesday, September 13th at 7 pm in the media center is your chance! All are welcome to come play a part in the success of the upcoming school year. The PTA meets once a month, generally on the 2nd Wednesday, and most meetings are LESS THAN 1 HOUR!! Look for a list of upcoming meeting dates to mark your calendar in our next newsletter. Meetings include grade level reports from administration, a follow up from recent PTA events, and a sneak peek at upcoming PTA events. It’s the Wednesday night HOT SPOT!! : )
Open chairs include Hospitality, Reflections, BoxTops, Website, and Staff Appreciation Week just to name a few. Involvement in the PTA doesn’t mean you have to attend monthly PTA meetings. We welcome anyone who wants to help make our school year a HUGE SUCCESS!
THANK YOU- we can’t do it without you!!
Thank you to the many families who signed up and provided items for the Back to School Kick off Breakfast for the Staff that was held last Thursday! We couldn’t have done it without the House, Tiwana, Green, Xu, Fields, Frankovic, Dickson, Taylor, Watson-Barrato, Rice, and Gallagher families!! A very special thank you to Debbie Wood, Katrina Mitchell-Cooper, Janet Drnach, and Sofia Zenker who assisted with set up and/or clean up!! Your time was greatly appreciated!
The BBMS PTA will be offering our students, our teachers, our staff, our families, and our community many wonderful opportunities to enjoy and be a part of during this school year! Your support is greatly appreciated!! WE can't do all of these things without YOUR support!
The 4th Quarter
The 4th Quarter program has some GREAT news! We will be expanding our sports curriculum☺. This fall we will be playing soccer, basketball, handball, dodgeball and football ☺. If your child has not played any of these sports or is a top athlete we GREATLY encourage you to register your child. Our mission is: To create young leaders! Our program is designed for beginners, intermediate, and advanced athletes. As you all know I am certified personal trainer ☺! This means that everything we do out on the athletic field has a purpose and a reason! Throughout the program we will use these fitness tools: body weight exercises, agility ladders, cones, medicine balls, resistance bands, TRX suspension training, jump rope, and boxing. The fall program will begin on September 27th! Register here: http://www.the4thqtr.org/middle-school-registration/. If your child needs financial assistance he/she may sell ten 4th Quarter t-shirts to cover the registration fee. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
