Indian Education

A national program that identifies Native American students and helps them explore their Native American history, roots, and culture.  Only students who have been identified as American Indian can participate.  I have the applications forms for tribal membership for those students who are American Indians, but who have not yet applied to a tribe.

BMS Yearbook Staff

Each year a handful of eighth grade students are chosen to help create and design the yearbook. Students on the yearbook staff, take pictures, design pages, and edit the book.  Students on the staff are nominated by their Language Arts teachers at the end of their seventh grade school year because students need to have superior writing and editing skills.

Lady Bucks Volleyball

Teams consist of a seventh grade team and an eighth grade team.  Lady Bucks seventh and eighth grades play in tournaments throughout the season as well as compete against the other large county schools.   The eighth grade won the County Championship for 2011-2012, and our goal for this year is for both the seventh and eighth grade teams to win the County Championship.  Tryouts are held in late April or early May.  In order to try out, one must have a current physical and a C average or above.  The coaches look for athletic ability, attitude, and coachability.
