School News

The first day of school for students is Monday, August 20th.  see you then.

Upcoming Events:

August 16:    New Student Orientation - 8:30am

  • Click the link for a list of parent questions that were asked regarding Saturday School.

  • Read the BSMS Guidance Newsletter for 4th quarter.  It contains information, dates, and notices critical for 4th quarter and the end of the school year.

  • Please review the BSMS tardy policy.  A hard copy will be distributed to all students prior to Winter Break.  Being punctual is as important as regular attendance.  Help your child develop responsible life habits.

  • School begins at 8:30am and ends at 3:10.  Please drop children off at the school between 8:00am and 8:20am.  Students will be late after 8:30am.  Please pick up children before 3:30pm.  We do not have a Before or After Care program, so students will be unsupervised before 8am or after 3:30pm unless they are involved in extracurricular activities.

  • Thursday conferences have begun.  To schedule a conference with all of your child's academic teachers  please contact the guidance office at 301-702-7515.  Mr. Blakeney is the sixth grade counselor, Ms. Cameron works with the seventh graders and Ms. Davis counsels the eighth grade.  As always, to schedule an individual conference with just one teacher, please contact that teacher directly or contact the grade level administrator for assistance.  Ms. Lewis works with the sixth grade, Mr. Moore takes care of seventh grade, and Mr. Clark is the eighth grade administrator.

  • Here are 700 Great Web Sites for Kids and Parents for anything from project and research ideas, to enrichment, to just plain fun.


  • Visit the Faculty + Staff link at left to contact your child's teachers by e-mail and to access class websites (if available). **new staff roster being updated now**

  • 2007-2008 Uniform Policy

  • Long sleeved polo shirts, navy crewneck sweatshirts (must be worn over the polo, and long sleeve tees that are the same color as the polo shirt (and worn underneath) are the only items that students may wear in the building during the school day.  Coats, jean jackets, hoodies, track jackets, or any other apparel will not be permitted during the school day.

  • Please continue to encourage your child to read for 1/2 hour every night.  Many studies have shown that the more students read, the better they will do academically.  Reading is the building block for academic success.  Help your child to practice being a winner. Go to the Prince Georges County Memorial Library System for information on book programs and information on a library card.
