  `Welcome to Bluestone Middle School’s web page.  As you can see, we are working on creating a user friendly page that is easier to navigate through and has important information readily available.

 
We are very excited about the 2014-2015 school year.  BMS made incredible gains in 2013-2014 and we are looking to continue the trend.  There are some changes this year in scheduling and in some of the tools being used to reinforce instruction.  We have looked at data and want to make sure we are making sound decisions and using proven tools to enhance student learning. Our goal is to provide a comfortable environment for our students with a strong system of supports for all learners.
 
As the school year progresses, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
