  • 7th Grade Point Defiance Zoo Field Trip

    On Friday, May 12th, permission slips were sent home for our annual end of the year, behavior reward field trip to the Point Defiance Zoo. The trip will take place on June 13th. Replacement permission slips are available by clicking the headline above. We need your help! The zoo requires one chaperone per 5 students. The Tumwater district office needs to clear each of these chaperones, a process that can take a couple weeks. If you would be interested in chaperoning our field trip, please send back the volunteer clearance form as soon as possible. Chaperones join us for free in return for spending time with a small group of our angelic 7th graders for a few hours. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    There are many fun and exciting events planned for the end of the year. We want every student to attend all end-of-the-year activities. Our hope is that all students will earn the right to attend these activities. There may however, be a few students who make choices that will result in the loss of certain privileges.

    If your child is enrolled at BMS as a transfer from another school or district, this is a reminder that the transfer needs to be renewed each year. Please make sure that your form for the 2017-18 school year is on file with Lisa Alonzo (709-7006) at the District Office. This will ensure that your child is on the waiting list for the next school year. Forms are available at our school office, at the District Office, and online. The District Office will begin accepting these forms for returning students on March 1, 2017. New applications will be accepted beginning April 3, 2017.

  • Update about our Planned Move of 6th Grades to the Middle Schools

    Tumwater School District plans for future facility needs based on the best available information. As these plans cover many years, sometimes circumstances change, causing us to revisit previous decisions. That is what is happening right now, with the move of our sixth grades to our middle school sites. Originally, we had planned construction of new wings at our middle schools for 2017-18, with 6th grade students starting in the fall, 2018. With State funding for all day kindergarten programs arriving sooner than expected, four of our six elementary schools are now at capacity. This has led us to explore moving the timeline up one full year. We have thoroughly explored this option and have found that it allows for the time needed for planning and construction. The School Board has reviewed and approved this new timeline. As part of the planning process, ongoing communication with students, staff and the community will be a priority.
