    Knox County PTA Clothing Center needs our help!
    BMS will hold its annual Clothing Drive the Week of Nov. 18-22. 
     
    ALL good used clothing in ALL sizes are accepted (no shoes or underwear).
    There are specific needs:   boys clothing sizes 14, 16, and 18, and shorts in ALL sizes.
     
    Your donations go directly to children in need in Knox County.  Students, bring bagged clothing to your homeroom.  Student Council will collect and tally the bags.  At the end of the week, the homeroom from each grade with the most bags donated gets a DONUT PARTY!  If every student donates just 1 bag it will make a HUGE difference in our community!
    To help or if you have questions contact Karen Dupree at jkdupree5@gmail.com.

    Due to the amount of students riding each bus, we do not allow students to ride home with friends if it is not their zoned school bus. A driver may also stop a student from getting off at the wrong stop. Please keep in mind that your child’s safety is our utmost concern. In the event of a child care emergency, you can write a note requesting your child ride home on a bus with another student. The note must include the reason and be brought to the office first thing in the morning. If the bus is full, the request will be denied, and we will contact you.
