        Challenging Ourselves to Learn, to Act Responsibly, to Achieve Goals, and to Persevere

The 2019-20 school year is off to a great start!  Students reported to school eager to learn and involved in a variety of sports.  Clubs and activities will be starting soon.  Announcements will be made on the TV news for upcoming meetings.  

Technology at BAMS will be migrating from iPads to laptops within the classrooms.  This change will allow students to access the materials connected to Go Math and Springboard.  Teachers will take time to review student logins and procedures for the various programs used.

The new student information system, Sapphire, is up and running.  Parents and students can find attendance information, grades, homework and other things in the portal.  Please be sure to request your login and PIN as described below.


Sincerely,

Sherry Holub, Ed. D.

Homework and communication

Bangor Middle School has moved to Sapphire for homework and communication.  It is necessary for parents to visit the district website and create a Sapphire account.  Choose the Sapphire icon, the last choice is create a Web Portal account.  Follow the directions and submit the information.  IT will confirm the information and send parents a PIN to be used with their login.  Please be patient as there are thousands of requests being made throughout the district.  

Teachers will post homework on a daily basis.  Homework completion is an important part of the learning process.  Teachers limit homework to necessary practice and preparation for class material.  Please encourage your student to complete their assignments so he/she may fully participate in class activities.
