    Announcements – November 1, 2018

    Ms. Pinkerton would like to remind all students that they may not eat candy during class.

    Congratulations to the Warrior readers who participated in the “Read It Please” scary book program in the library.  Over 100 scary books were read during the month of October.  Ten lucky students received a small prize for participating.

    Also happening in the library: sometime during the night our Naruto books were booknapped.  It seems a group called the “Nefarious Naruto Nappers” have claimed responsibility. A note was left stating that our students must “Read to Ransom” the books back. Additional information will be passed along as it becomes available.

    Family movie night is this evening at BMS beginning at 6:00 pm.  The entire family is invited to to see the movie “Coco.”  Admission is free and concessions will be sold with all proceeds going to the Drama Dept.

    There is an NJHS meeting tomorrow during 8th grade lunch in Mrs. McGill’s room.  Students should bring their lunch to the meeting.

    Red Ribbon Week continues today as we “Take a Stand for a Drug Free Land” and wear red, white, and blue; Friday we will “Rally Against Drugs” and 6th grade wears white, 7th grade wears red, and 8th grade wears black (the grade with the most participation gets a pass for free lunch seating.)

    Through Nov. 9, the SCA is sponsoring a toy drive for underprivileged youth in several African and Caribbean countries. We are asking our BMS community to donate packaged toys in order to make this holiday season a magical time for those kids. The gifts do not need to be extravagant and may be purchased from places like 5 and Below or a dollar store. For each item donated, that student will receive a free seating pass at lunch.

    For the month of November, we will be making Gratitude our Attitude. We ask that during the homeroom moment of silence, all Warriors think of one thing for which they are grateful.
