A MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL LYMAN
Dear BAMS Families,
March certainly brought us our fair share of cold and snow! I am certainly looking forward to some warmer weather and the start of our spring sports seasons. Some of you may know I was a varsity baseball coach at Leland and Gray for 8 seasons so I am a big fan of the spring sports season.
A team from BAMS recently applied for a $286,720 grant over the next five years to help fund our BEAMS afterschool program. A variety of people participated in this application and it was truly a community effort. We recently received a confirmation that BAMS had been awarded this amount!
I am proud of Kate Burt and her staff for their hard work in preparing the application. I could not be happier for our students and the future opportunities they will have in this incredible program. We have a great thing going and the 5-year grant renewal is a huge step. 175 students have attended a BEAMS program so far this year, more than any year in BEAMS history.
Congratulations to 7th-grade student Matthew Gordon-Macy for being recently selected as the Brattleboro Boys and Girls Club Youth of the Year. He spent a day last week in Montpelier to be recognized for this wonderful achievement.
Smarter Balanced Testing for the spring: Please see the link below for a letter regarding spring testing. Thank you.
At this time, the last student day for the 7th grade is June 19 and we will plan for an early release on that day. The 8th-grade move-up ceremony will be held on June 13 and that will be the last day for 8th-grade students.
Enjoy the April break!
Keith Lyman- Principal
