The BHMS Clinic Volunteer Schedule for the upcoming school year is now being set up. Parents and guardians of BHMS students are needed to volunteer for a half day every month. Times are the same every month, and you get to be at the heart of the school. Not a nurse or a doctor? Don't worry. In the health clinic volunteers are not allowed to dispense any medication; only ice bags, band aids and TLC. There are a number of slots still available for the 2017-2018 school year. If you are interested in a permanent slot, please contact Stephanie Spinale at 248-207-2571 or email email@example.com . Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

Throughout the year families have supported BHMS by turning in Box Tops for Education. Each Box Top is worth ten cents to BHMS -- but worth nothing if you toss them in your waste basket. So, we encourage you to save them over the summer. There is a container for Box Tops in the main office.
BHS Information Services is offering Third-Party access to district technology pricing. BHS is not endorsing the vendors or products, however, we are offering the access and deep discounts the statewide program offers. Please note: All transactions, accounts, and technical support are between you and the vendors represented in the program. If support on personal devices is needed, BHS will refer you to the vendor contacts for assistance. Click here to view the Personal Purchase Flyer.
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!

Please remember that BHMS IS AN ENTIRELY NUT-RESTRICTED BUILDING, 24-HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. There are students in the building who are highly allergic to peanuts and all kinds of tree nuts, and their well-being is of concern.
Students should not bring lunch or snacks containing nuts or nut products. Additionally, while your donations and gifts are very much appreciated, we ask that you make sure anything given to the office, to teachers or classrooms, for bake sales, end-of-sports or club parties or any other occasion are free of all nuts and nut products. Thank you so much for your consideration.
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.
