A MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL LYMAN
Dear BAMS Families,
No matter the time of the year, there are always plenty of events happening in our school, I am very proud of how many of them have such a positive impact on our students. I would like to take a moment to highlight a few important dates and activities coming soon.
Our middle school spring concert will be held Monday, March 12 at 7 PM in the high school auditorium. The chorus and band students have been working exceptionally hard to prepare for the show and I am excited to see them perform. We hope to see you there!
This Friday evening, March 9, we will host a dance for all BAMS students from 7-9 pm in the BAMS MPR, please note the time change. At the same time, we will host a parent social from 7 to 9 PM in the cafeteria. All parents are welcome to attend the parent social and if you are able to bring a potluck dessert, it would be appreciated but is not required.
On March 22, we will host an open house from 5:30 to 6:45 PM to showcase our exploratory program, incoming 7th grade families and current 7th and 8th grade families are invited. In addition, we will host a parent information session beginning at 6:30 PM for all incoming 7th grade families. We hope to see many of you there.
March 23 and March 26 are early release days so we can host student-led conferences for the seventh grade. Eighth grade students will be presenting showcases of their learning later in the spring. If you have not scheduled your seventh grade conference, please contact your respective counselor as soon as possible.
I would like to finish by thanking and congratulating all of the winter sports teams for an outstanding season! The teams were well coached and the players played hard throughout the season. My background before becoming a principal was as a middle and high school physical education teacher, athletic director and coach. I certainly value the countless educational lessons learned through the hard work and commitment required to be a member of the team. Thank you for transporting your child, attending the games, cheering them on, and the countless other things you do to support your student-athlete. We are looking forward to a great spring season!
From this issue on, BAMS will include the families of next year’s incoming 7th graders in our newsletters in order to help orient you to the exciting world of BAMS. You can also check us out on our website, bams.wsesu.org.
