Welcome to BMS

Welcome from BMS Principal Steven Valkenaar  

I want to welcome you to the 2019-20 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.

We are proud of our past and accomplishments, however we feel the BEST is YET to come! 

Middle School years challenge our students to not only adjust to instructional needs, but also the major social emotional issues our preteens and teens may encounter. Our schedule this year will allow us the opportunity to serve the social emotional health of our students as well as the academic needs of all our Bulls and Sissies. We are preparing this year to raise the bar academically and help our students reach new levels of success

Our goal is to communicate in a variety of methods to reach the masses!  The website, Facebook, Remind, mail out letters, emails, phone calls, Bridgeport Index, and The Messenger will all be vital access points for information and news for BMS.  Please check our website and Facebook (@BridgeportMS) regularly for updated information on school events and activities. We will also actively use a campus Remind to directly text parents on campus news and events. Parents can receive Remind notices by texting @g7hb89 to the number 81010.

Thank you for blessing us with the opportunity to serve your child. We GET to look forward to an amazing school year!
