Hello Viking Community,

As your Principal, I want you to know that we appreciate all of your support you provide your student and also our school. I know that our students enter our school with different strengths and areas of need and my goal is to help them to grow and learn academically, socially, and emotionally during their time at BMS, and when they leave are better able to navigate school and life.

Site Council

Our school site council needs your vote to elect new members. School site council is a group of staff and parents that are essential to our school as they review and update the single plan for student achievement. Our first meeting is Thursday September 6th at 3:30 in the BMS Library.

We need you to take a minute and vote for new members. Please click here to vote for your parent representatives.


Annual Fundraiser at BMS

On September 5, we will have grade level assemblies to kick off our annual fundraiser. This is our largest fundraiser at our school and we appreciate all of your support in continuing to make it a success. Click here for information.



We are continuing to use Positive Behavior Expectations and Supports to reinforce student behavior using positive reinforcement. We are continually refining what we do and we will be asking students what types of rewards they would like when we catch them being good. The intent is that this will further expand the number of students who want rewards.


September is Attendance Awareness Month

Every September is attendance awareness month for schools. This is perfect timing to remind all of us the impact that attending school has on student success later in life. Your partnership in ensuring your students are here every day, on time is much appreciated.


Picnic on the Green – September 14, 12:00-12:52 pm

This is a wonderful event where you can come to campus, bring lunch to share with your student, set up a blanket and enjoy time with your student on the baseball field. We always have such a tremendous turnout which is a terrific reminder of how wonderful our parent community is and the support you show our students. Please bring your own chairs and/or blankets to sit on. Bring your own food and if you are buying food in town, remember that many of the eateries in town are inundated with orders so plan on ordering your food early.

6th Grade Dance – September 7, 1:30-3:00pm

Leadership students will be coordinating this 6th grade dance which will be held in the MP room.


Viking Night

Viking Night will be held on October 5. I hope that you and your families join in on this wonderful community event that is coordinated by our PTSA. Click here for more information.


Breakfast and Brunch at BMS

In August, I mentioned that we will have brunch at BMS, and we now also offer breakfast too. Students can purchase breakfast, brunch, and lunch at BMS.


Red Awning Cafe

As a reminder, the Red Awning Cafe located at the First Baptist Church across the street from BMS, will once again generously offer breakfast to all students Monday thru Friday from 7:00-8:15 am. Students can simply show up and eat breakfast, play games and hang out with friends.
