BMS Spotlight on Learning

This week, we would like to shine our BMS Spotlight on Eliana Carter and Nathan Henson. The other week, without being asked, Eliana and Nathan took time out of their day to clean up the garbage on our outdoor basketball courts. Thank you Eliana and Nathan for identifying a need and making our school grounds look beautiful. 

This week, we would also like to shine our BMS Spotlight on Aila Stocker. They are a hardworking student who is creating multiple ideas to celebrate Pride Month in the school. So far, they have a presentation and a mural in the works, and they work on them whenever they have a spare minute. They feel that it's important to have representation in the school, and to spread the word of love as far as they can.

Do you know of a BMS Faculty/Staff/Student member that is shining bright! If you do, please complete the form below and we can include the nomination in an upcoming newsletter.
