As students finalize their course selections for the second semester it should be noted that any student choosing to take an Industrial Arts class is required, by law, to wear steel toed boots during all shop classes. Students unprepared to meet this requirement will not be permitted to select Industrial courses. This regulation is part of the Health and Safety guidelines, as outlined by the government of NB and is meant to ensure a safer environment for all students.
A week long campaign that highlights bullying issues, has kicked off at BLMS! During the campaign, students have prepared posters, video clips, designed ribbons for the entire school population to be distributed on Friday morning along with "Wear Blue" and sign the Anti-Bullying poster to be displayed in the foyer. An article will appear in the local paper Focus on Kent that was written by one of our journalism students. There will be a one hour, school wide presentation outlined and directed by students. It will include role plays, skits, news report and a guest speaker.
Students will be receiving a "mini progress report" in each of their classes on Thursday, December 16th. This will give students and parents/guardians a good snapshot of student achievement levels one month before final examinations begin on January 25th, 2011.
Next Wednesday is the Christmas Choir Canata and Thursday through Friday is the school play.

Get your tickets at the office or from the actors - only $5 for students and $7 for adults! There will be no performance for the school, so make sure you buy your tickets to the evening show before they sell out!
