The BHMS PTO is hosting the new "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul!" at the Emagine Theater in Birmingham on May 26, at 1:30 p.m. This is a half day of school, with dismissal time at 11:35 a.m. The cost of $20 will include the movie, pop and popcorn. Parents are responsible for arranging transportation and supervision of their children.
Tickets for BHMS students will be sold at school during lunch time on May 15, 16 and 17. Your student may also turn in their money to the office in a sealed envelope with your student's name, number of tickets and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" written on the outside. Checks should be made out to the BHMS PTO. Lunch is not included in the movie package, but the Emagine has offered a 20% discount to its on-site restaurant, Four Story Burger, for anyone who wants to go before the movie and enjoy lunch. The number for Four Story Burger is (248) 385-0500, and they do take reservations.
Many thanks to the Emagine Palladium for partnering with the BHMS PTO to make this event happen. If you have questions about this event, please contact PTO Co-Presidents Lisa Efros email@example.com or Sue Brodsky at firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
As a reminder, for the safety of our students, staff, and visitors, dogs are not allowed on school grounds between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. when school is in session OR at any time that school events - including sports practices and games - are taking place. Allowed hours are 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., assuming no other school activities or events are happening at that time. During those hours dogs must be on a leash and owners are responsible for disposing of waste. Leash and Sanitation Law signs are posted on school property.
You can support BHMS when you do your regular shopping at Kroger by designating Bloomfield Hills Middle School as your Plus Card Community Rewards program recipient. The Kroger website provides instructions for setting up a new account, or for designating Bloomfield Hills Middle School (Organization Code 28755) to your existing account.
Once you've designated BHMS as your organization, each time you shop at Kroger and use your Plus Card, BHMS earns reward points, which translate into checks paid to BHMS quarterly. That's all there is to it!
Spring BHMS spring team sports information, including coach contact information and game schedules, can be found under the Athletics link on the BHMS website.
M-Step testing continues through May. Please take note of the testing windows for your child below. Block teachers will post their specific testing times on their Moodle or Google Classroom pages as soon as they are available. Teachers have access to practice sessions provided by the State, and have been encouraged to allow students to see samples of the assessments.
We kindly request that out of school appointments not be scheduled during the school day, if possible, while M-Step is going on. Students who are absent during a testing session are pulled from class for make ups.
Thank you in advance for all your efforts to make M-Step testing a positive experience. Best practice informs us that several factors influence test outcomes:
-Arriving at school well rested and after having a healthy breakfast.
-Approaching the test with a positive attitude.
-Taking your time, doing your best, and asking for clarification, when needed.
M-Step testing windows are as follows:
-April 10 – May 5: 5th & 8th grades ELA, Math and Social Studies
-May 1 – May 26: 6th & 7th grades ELA and Math (7th Grade also takes Science)
For more information, please read this Parent letter from State Superintendent Brian Whiston.
Unsupervised students in the building before and after school hours are a safety concern. Students may enter the building at 7:55 a.m., and should leave the building by 3:15 p.m. Students who remain in the building unsupervised after 3:15 will be taken to Kidz Zone, and parents will be responsible for paying a $15 drop-in charge per incident. If your daily schedule requires you to drop your student off or pick them up before/after these times, please register for Kidz Zone.
Please use the "BHMS Student Clubs Meeting Calendar", which can be found on the main page of the BHMS website (right side of main page) to find out when before and after school BHMS clubs meet. No need to call the office, as club sponsors have entered dates for the entire school year. Once you have the calendar open, click on "Week" at the top right corner. The calendar will then display both start and end times for the meetings, so you can pick your student up promptly at the end of the meeting. If you can not pick your student up promptly after each meeting, please prearrange supervised care through the district Kidz Zone program.
