BCMS Announcements

This communication in no way reflects what is happening at the High School. They are working under different guidelines. As of now, BCMS is waiting on the Governor to decide if kids will be coming back to school in May.  If we were to come back in May, each sport has the potential of having some sort of season.  Our goal is always to provide students with activities to participate in after school in a positive environment.  This year more than ever, that may be needed.  So if we come back to school, I would work with our coaches to put some things together for your kids.

As a part of our service to our students and families, we also want to make sure we are treating families right.  If we do not come back to school, all money will, of course, be refunded.  I understand some people may not be interested in the modified program that we come up with if we come back, so we would also allow families to request a refund instead of having your child participate at that time if that is the case. 

We hope to have a definitive answer soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try to do what is best for kids.  I know it isn't easy.  If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call or email.  I would love to hear from you!

BCMS Classroom Showcase

Kelm Classroom

One of the ways that I'm connecting my digital learners is by inviting them to create an avatar of themselves in Pixton, and then we added our class photo as our Google Classroom header. It's much easier for us to see our digital selves together in one space--in addition to meeting in Google Meet each day to check in, say "Hi!", and go over the day's lesson. Pictured is my 2nd Hour class.  

Student of the week - Quarter 2: Courage

Students are selected for student of the week based off one or many of their character traits that aligns with what we value here at BCMS.  The students represented for our student of the week award have exhibited the following 7 traits that we reference as The Bison Way:

RESPECT: Thinking about others feelings before you act

SERVICE: Carrying out an act of kindness

ATTITUDE: Being hopeful, positive and confident

COURAGE: Going on when you don’t have the strength

INTEGRITY: Doing the right thing even when no one is watching

COMPASSION: Showing kindness and a willingness to help others


CHARACTER: Strong mental and moral qualities that are distinctive to an individual.

Bison Buck WInners

Bison Bucks are given to those students who show their respectfulness, positive attitude, and integrity. Every month at the end of the month all of the Bison Bucks are placed in a drawing for one student in each grade level to win some Bison gear. Bison Bucks are then mailed home to show you how much we appreciate their efforts in making BCMS a great place for all.
