INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOVE UP DAY ON FRIDAY, MAY 25

Each year there is a district-wide Move Up Day, when students who will be moving to a different building next school year spend time at that building. This year Move Up Day is on Friday, May 25, which is also 1/2 day of school. Here is how Move Up Day will work for BHMS students:

8th graders should NOT report to BHMS at all on May 25. Instead, follow these instructions. There is no need to call 8th grade absences into the BHMS attendance line.

8th Graders Who WILL Attend BH High School: Students should go directly to the high school campus at the times indicated in this letter from BH High School Principal, Charlie Hollerith. The letter refers to high school bus transportation to the high school. Here is the BH High School Bus Schedule (best viewed on a computer screen due to print size). Please refer questions about buses to the BHS Transportation Department at 248-341-6290.

8th graders who WILL NOT attend BH High School: These students do not need to report to school on that day. You do NOT have to call in their absence from BHMS.

5th, 6th and 7th Graders: On Move Up Day, students in these grades will participate in some activities with the teachers from the grades that they will be in next year. The morning start time does not change, and the 1/2 day ends at 11:35 a.m.

4th Graders from Way and Conant: BHMS will host incoming 5th graders from Way and Conant on Move Up Day. Please open and carefully review these Move Up Day Instructions for Way and Conant 4th Graders so you know where your student will start and end the day, and other pertinent information.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION COLLECTED ALL YEAR AROUND

BHMS collects Box Tops for Education all year around There is a collection box in the main office where the clipped Box Tops can be dropped off. REMEMBER . . . each Box Top is worth ten cents to BHMS, but worth nothing if you toss it in your waste basket. The math is simply amazing. If 750 students each brought in only 10 Box Tops a month, for the nine months of the school year, BHMS would earn $6,750 annually to use toward programs or purchases not covered under the budget. Thanks for supporting BHMS in small ways that can have big results. For a list of products that contain Box Tops, click HERE.
