If you notice your feelings of stress or anxiety becoming intense, try controlled breathing. When we are feeling stress, we may notice a change in our breath's rate and pattern. This is part of the" fight or flight response." Controlled breathing can help to send a message to a part of our nervous system and our brain that even though things may feel overwhelming , we are not in danger.

To help yourself get into the routine and comfort of utilizing this tool, practice when you are feeling calm. That way when your feelings elevate you are ready!

If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or stressed, and need someone to talk to please come to see us so we can help!

In September we celebrate Self Improvement Month. Each day we are learning, evolving and growing to be the version of ourselves we aspire to be. This month, remember to pause , care for yourself and acknowledge that you can improve some of your habits and systems which will have a positive impact on your school performance and how you feel. The only way to build a new habit is to practice it, so try some of these personal growth challenges! If you would like to talk more about this or if we can help you in any way please reach out to us:)



WEB is our 8th grade leadership team.


August 24, 2022

At the heart of the WEB program are our WEB Leaders.

The success of our program is based on a strong, collaborative, caring group of students who will step up to not only support BMS 6th graders, but also act as mentors and take the lead in creating a positive school climate. WEB Leaders step up and become a substantial presence within school acting as models of positive behavior which is ultimately a catalyst for climate change within school.

Our WEB Leaders have been hard at work already this year. They spent the first half day of school attending leadership training. They will visit their 6th grade Prides to host activities throughout August. The WEB Leadership team advisors are Mrs. Massey and Mrs. DiBenedetto.
