Congratulations to all of our Athletic Teams on their seasons this year. We look forward to another successful year in 2014-15.
For any student who may want to try out for a sports team next year please remember that in order to be eligible to participate you must maintain a 2.0 GPA AND have an FHSAA Athletic Physical packet completed and turned in to Ms. Cassidy prior to tryouts. This packet can either be picked up from the front office or will be available on the school website sometime this summer.Please keep checking to see when it is available.
If you print the athletic packet from the website ("Printable Forms" link in the left navigation panel) please be sure to download ALL pages and have it completed including being notarized before returning it to school.
Thank you for all of your support to BCMS and the athletic programs,
Anne Cassidy, BCMS Athletic Director

Career Specialist, Emily Clevenger, works closely with Florida Gateway College in Lake City to increase Baker County students’ school to college transition. She is very excited to announce that Career Pathways Specialist, Pam Murawski from FGC presented all 8th graders information about the job market and available programs taking less than two years of training to complete such as logistics, cosmetology, business, welding, lawn care, and health care careers such as LPN, RN and CNAs. Students were encouraged to take advantages of programs at the high school such as the logistics classes, mechanics, business academy, and health academy.

Your support by sending in your labels is making a difference. If you are new to our school or new to clipping labels remember to send in:
Box Tops for Education and My Coke Rewards when you buy your family’s groceries. Just clip off the required labels when you get home and send them by your child to his/her first period teacher. We have a contest every month to see which first period class turns in the most labels or bottle caps. The winning class receives a traveling trophy, and the students in the class who participated get to celebrate with a party. Any teacher of a class that brings in over 500 labels gets to choose reward items to use in class.
