    School Coupon Book Campaign

    Thursday, September 24th, is the kickoff for this year's Knox County Schools Coupon Book Campaign.  We will still have our Candy Scramble (it will look different and be safe for students to participate) if you sell at least 5 books by Monday morning (Sept. 28th).  More info will be coming home on Thursday with the students and will be available on our website.  Students that are in person and virtual are urged to sell books to help raise money for our school. The money we raise will support technology and student incentives.  There will be separate times for virtual students/parents to bring money and/or pick up books/prizes.  The information will be available starting Thursday.  For each $10 coupon book sold, BMS will keep $8.00.  Our goal is to sell 3000 books which will raise $24,000 for the school.  Please send all questions to Marianne Lesler (marianne.lesler@knoxschools.org).

    Information Needed for our Counselors

    We need your help and input. The following is a link to a needs assessment for our counselors.  This will assist in guiding them to help virutal and in person students and parents.  This was first sent out when school began.  If you did not complete the assessment at that time, please take just a couple of minutes to complete it now.  This is valuable information for the counselors.  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdLmbdBiIuORUUrnwq00al9Tm57s-oM9xgIYZszIG2EXX1HoA/viewform?usp=pp_url
