5th Grade Residency Verification

State law requires that public schools verify student residence. In addition, the BUSD Governing Board requires that all 5​th​
grade students and all 8​th​ grade students prove residency again – even if they have always lived in Benicia. This requirement must be completed ​ prior​  to August registration at Benicia Middle School. Your student will not be able to participate in registration if this task is
not completed.  More information can be seen on the following link:  5th Grade Parent Residency Letter

BUSD Teacher of the Year

We are so very pleased to announce that the BUSD Teacher of the Year is one of our own:  Mrs. Cathy Wright.  Mrs. Wright is one of our most beloved teachers and this honor is well deserved.


Mrs. Moore's Farewell

Now that the year is coming to an end, it’s time for me to share some important news with you all. Many of you have heard that I am leaving Benicia Middle School. That is true. I have absolutely loved being at BMS, more than I thought I ever would. As a first year principal, my learning curve has been huge, yet rewarding. I have gained a family and have really come to enjoy this age level of the students. However, before coming to BMS, I taught for 16 years at Robert Semple Elementary School. I was an integral part of that culture and really established my roots. When I left Semple, I told myself that someday I’d be back. Semple’s current principal, Mrs. Ablee, is retiring. Absolutely nothing is driving me from BMS, but everything in my heart is pulling me to Semple. So, that’s where my journey will take me. I will miss BMS tremendously, especially since we have some really great things planned for the coming school year. I wish BMS all the best and will miss each and everyone dearly.

June 1st is a School Day

8th Grade Promotion

Promotion Dress Code

We've had a number of students ask about dress code for the dance and promotion. The stipulations for the dress code for both events is the same: no shorts, strapless dresses, dresses with cutouts, dresses with plunging necklines, or dresses with full backs exposed.. Dresses need to have 2 straps, one over each shoulder. Attire should be semi-formal or something they would wear out to a nice dinner.

Here are two websites for buying and/or attaching straps to dresses: to buy straps:  or to sew yourself:  How to Sew a Strap

Eyeglass Donations

In just about any dresser drawer, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.  Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed in his job. A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive.  The Benicia Lions Club is collecting eyeglasses which are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact.  They have generously given us a donation box for our front office for used eyeglasses you no longer need.  Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames. Children's glasses are especially needed.
