Happy Start with Hello week! It's an exciting week at BMS as we "Start with Hello" with our fellow students. Our students are going to learn how to combat social isolation by looking out for those students who may feel apart from everyone else. Social isolation is a growing epidemic in America and our schools are no different. Studies show that students who feel more included have few absences, higher grades and better test scores. *Anecdotal evidence at BMS shows that students who look out for each other have a better time at school!* We encourage our whole district to reach out to those around you and start with hello. A simple hello can make someone's day! Please enjoy the video that our students made to show what a difference a "hello" can make. And a huge thank you to Phillip Malina for shooting and editing our video!!!
