A special thank you from the PTA to our community for supporting our teachers and staff last week for Teacher Appreciation Week! From flowers, to sweet treats to kind notes of thanks, our teachers were made to feel very special and appreciated. Thank you again BMES Staff for all you do for our students!

Last Tuesday we hosted our final PTA meeting of the 2023-2024 school year; a lot of important information was covered in preparation for the 2024-2025 school year, which we plan to recap and share in the Bear Post next week.
