Career Fair
BMS will be hosting a career fair for students Friday, May 12th. All students will have an opportunity to participate in the career fair during their elective classes.

Remediation Schedule
We recently administered end-of-year benchmark assessments at Brogden Middle School. As a school team, we have analyzed the data from these assessments and have put a plan in place to assist your student prior to our EOG tests. Beginning Monday, May, 8th targeted students will receive additional support in all EOG/EOC subject areas.

In order to reach the needs of our students, we have had to make adjustments to some of our students’ schedules. School administrators met with all students who will be impacted and sent home a letter on Friday. We are asking that you help us to encourage your child to attend their remediation sessions and put forth their best effort. We want to ensure that our students are prepared to be successful when taking their EOG/EOC tests. Thank you for your continued support.

Take 2
We will begin taking our EOG/EOC tests the week after Memorial Day. If any student does not reach proficiency on their EOG tests at the end of the school year, they will need to attend the Take 2 program at BMS. Take 2 consists of remediation and an opportunity for students to retake their assessments. The dates of the program are Monday, June 12th - Friday, June 16th. The first day of Take 2 will consist of remediation only. Testing will begin on Tuesday, June 13th. Transportation will be provided for all students.

Summer CDM Information
