BE PREPARED FOR THE START OF 7TH GRADE
CHECK VACCINE RECORDS NOW
Before the start of the 2015-16 school year, make sure your incoming 7th grade students are ready. Vaccines required for 7th grade entry (California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 17, Section 6020) include:
1-Tdap booster given after age 7 years
2-MMR’s-most given prior to Kindergarten although some have missed 2nd dose
Other vaccines encouraged--Not required--by the Department of Health include; meningococcal and HPV vaccines.
To avoid the back to school rush, make appointments with your healthcare provider now. Spring break is a great time to review records and make appointments for immunization updates.

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
The district original calendar had June 1st as a non-student day. The calendar was changed earlier in the school year, making June 1st a school day. Please take note that we DO have school on Monday, June 1st.
8th Grade Promotion
8th Grade Promotion will take place on Thursday, June 4th, at 1:30pm on the lower field. For all the 8th Grade end of the year information, please click on the link below.
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.
STEM Day for Girls
STEM Day for Girls is an event for girls from 2nd-6th grade. It will be held on Sunday, 6/14, from 1-4 at the Vallejo Yacht Club. There will be hands-on workshops and team bonding activities. It will be an afternoon of fun projects involving Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Cost is $10. To reserve a spot call Fary and 707-319-5489. You can download and print the flyer from the link below or you can pick up a flyer in the BMS main office.
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.
