To celebrate the completion of a year’s work on the 2022 BMS Yearbook and spring supplement, staff members spent an afternoon at Incredible Pizza.

In last week's FLEX lesson, I talked to students about how their brains are entering a new phase of development that won't end until they reach their mid-to-late twenties. I explained that this isn't an excuse for them to get away with all the crazy things, but it is information that they should know about their own developing ability to control impulses, plan ahead, and act with empathy.

Congratulations, Freshman Class Officers!

Sixth grade students in Mrs. Waltz’s Western Geography classes practiced reading road maps, and observed the 150th birthday of Yellowstone, last week.

The girls beat Santa Fe South and Altus to win the consolation bracket, and the boys put up three wins in a row against Clinton, Santa Fe South, and Woodward to win tournament champs! Great job, Bronchos! Middle school soccer is coached by Coaches Keegan and Heather Radichel.

Boys’ and girls’ soccer teams opened their seasons by hosting the Piedmont Wildcats in the first home game of the year. Tonight’s games at OCS in Edmond have been canceled due to weather.

Congratulations to Hannah Bergman and Jasper Stewart, sixth graders, shown here with choir director Mrs. Margaret Ann Adams. Hannah and Jasper took part last week in the Oklahoma Music Educators Association Children’s All-State Choir in Tulsa. Great job, Bronchos!
