Extra shirts will be ordered but the price will remain the same.
Overflow parking will be available at the St. Angela Merici Catholic Church (to the left of the church upon entering, away from the construction area only) and the Harvest United Methodist Church across the street.
While your student is enjoying their Round-Up experience, feel free to remain in the commons (cafeteria) for some parent-specific information.
The following topics will be discussed:
- AVID binders
- Kickstart Kids Karate
- Skyward and Naviance
We will also host a Q & A session with a panel of recent BMS alumni for a student perspective on middle school.
Parents are welcome to stay for all, or some, of the discussion topics – or feel free to leave campus and come back at pick-up time. Student pick-up will be in the commons at the same table where the Round-Up experience started.
Kona Ice trucks will be parked on the bus ramp after Longhorn Round-Up!
