Welcome to BMS
Welcome from BMS Principal Travis Whisenant
I want to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year at Bridgeport Middle School! We are honored to have the privilege of partnering with you in your child’s education and are eager to maintain ongoing collaboration with you on any way we can serve your child’s needs.
In 2018, BMS received six Distinction Designations from the State of Texas for ELA/Reading, Mathematics, Science, Comparative Academic Growth, Post-Secondary Readiness, and Comparative Closing the Gaps. We are proud of our past and accomplishments...but even more excited about our future!
Middle School years are as much an emotional adjustment as they are an academic transition. Our student mentorship program serves this pivotal period in our students’ lives. Each 6th grade student at BMS is assigned to a 7th or 8th grade mentor for the school year. Student mentors are here to help make our 6th graders’ school year a positive experience as they transition to BMS. Mentors also lead 6th Grade students in a monthly character development program based on Sean Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
BMS is excited to welcome a new addition to our campus administration. Mr. Karl Little returns this year to BMS as our new Assistant Principal. Mr. Little has served the past two years as the Principal of the Bridgeport ISD Alternative Learning Center after a previous stint as BMS Assistant Principal. He is currently finishing his Doctorate in Education and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our campus.
We strive to maintain ongoing communication with our students’ parents in a variety of ways. Please check our website for updated information on school events and activities. We maintain a campus Facebook and Twitter page with updated information on school events. We will also actively use a campus “Remind” to directly text parents on campus news and events. Parents can receive Remind notices by texting “@h322k” to the number “81010.”
Thank you for blessing us with the opportunity to serve your child. We look forward to an amazing school year!
