    We are still in need of a few items:
    Instant Mashed Potatoes
    Cake/ dessert mixes
    Canned pumpkin
    Cranberry Sauce
    We are extending the drive through Tuesday!  The top donating homeroom will receive a pass to a home basketball game with free popcorn!  The winning homeroom per grade level will receive donuts!!

    After-School Tutoring Schedule: Tutoring schedule revisions for the next 2 weeks: Due to the early release Wednesday this week, tutoring will be held Monday (11/14) and Tuesday (11/15) - instead of our usual Monday and Wednesday.  There will be no tutoring the following week of Thanksgiving.  We will resume our normal tutoring schedule (Mondays and Wednesdays after school) after Thanksgiving week.

    This is a great opportunity for students to receive extra support in Math, Science, ELA, and Social Studies. If you have any questions, please contact joe.morelock@knoxschools.org

    Why suppport the Enrichment Fund? Any additional funds over $10 go to our Enrichment Fund, which supports funding gaps for technology, devices, books, programs, etc. Please consider an enrichment member...when you do, 100% of your gift stays at BMS!
