Welcome Back!

students unloading from buses on first day of school

The buses rolled in one by one and unloaded hundreds of enthusiastic and excited middle schoolers eager to learn. The positive energy of students, teachers, and administration in the building was certainly palpable. 

Our student theme for this year is THINK. Initially, the focus will be on topics such as problem solving and grit. As the year progresses, the shift of the focus will move towards social media and decision making. The hope is to keep this theme alive and an active part of the overall school experience for our students this year.

Wildcat Habitat

The Outdoor Natural Playground Company has arrived and work has begun on the Wildcat Habitat! As a school community and a larger town community, we have so much to be thankful for in this endeavor. So many people have given so much to get the project to this point.
  • The town of Bow DPW has delivered multiple dump truck loads of loam and fill to be used during construction.
  • Citizens of Bow approved $25,000 at the Annual School District meeting in March 2017.

We now have some equipment on site and the work has begun. It is expected that active
construction for the Wildcat Habitat will occur over
 the next four weeks. This will coincide with the 
school year, but recess location will simply be adjusted during construction.

It is certainly a very exciting phase to be entering after all of the planning and fundraising, but help is still needed, both financially and with materials. It is not too late to BUY A BRICK and be a
 permanent part of this project. Also, approximately 15 logs are needed for construction. Ideally, these logs would be 10 to 12 feet long and approximately 10 to 12 inches in diameter. We are hoping that someone might have hardwood logs available (we are trying to avoid using pine). The best case scenario would be to have them delivered directly to BMS. If that is not possible, we are willing to look for alternative ways to get them to BMS. The logs will be set into a variety of elements in the Wildcat Habitat and are an important part of the construction for this space. 

Thank you to all who have made this possible! We appreciate all the support provided by our larger community to make this project become a reality.
