As sixth graders and new students enter our school, their parents must review our Chromebook take-home policies and submit an authorization form granting their permission for their child to use and take home a District 2 Chromebook.

SUMMER MATH PACKETS
The 2019 summer math review packets are posted below. The BMS Math Department recommends that students do their best to complete the packet for their respective grade level before the beginning of the 2019-20 school year. This is not graded work, and students should skip items they do not understand. However, math knowledge gets rusty during summer break (students can lose up to 2.6 months of knowledge), and this review will empower students to begin the new year with confidence. Students will be able to show off their skills during the first week of school, which will be dedicated to reviewing problems from this packet.
