Home of the Wildcats


The BMS community recently gathered in the Pinkham Gymnasium to unveil the school's theme for 2018-19. Once the 8th graders were boisterously welcomed into the gym by grades 5-7, the assembly quickly got underway, with students spelling out the new theme, 'Building Connections, Building Community,' as they placed their large letters on the gym floor. The wooden bleachers withstood a sea of giant 'waves' going in both directions, and we all survived the deafening screams heard during the cheering contest (congrats to grade 8!). At the end of the festivities, it was like déjà vu--Joseph Albushies was picked out of the crowd to lead us with his karaoke rendition of 'Sweet Caroline'...so good, so good, so good! Following tradition, the new 5th graders were then ushered out to music and thunderous applause from grades 6-8. We certainly look forward to experiencing the building of connections and community in the upcoming year!

On Monday, August 27, BMS teachers and staff returned to work to make final preparations for the big first-day-of-school on Wednesday.

As the busses rolled in one-by-one and unloaded the anxious and excited students, the cafeteria, hallways, and classrooms buzzed with talk of summer activities, homeroom teachers, and student schedules.

We wish everyone a great school year and strongly encourage all students, faculty, and staff to focus on 'community and connections' as they embark on a new school year at Bow Memorial School.

Welcome back!
