Dear Bull Run Middle School Students and Parents,
I hope that you and your family are having a restful and relaxing summer break. I am very excited about the upcoming school year. Our administrative, office and custodial staff are working very hard to prepare for this school year. Our teachers will return on August 22nd to begin planning and preparing for the upcoming school year as well. We are all extremely enthusiastic about kicking off the school year in the near future.
New Student Orientation will be held on Thursday August 25, 2016. Students and parents are invited to attend the event. Students with the last names starting with A-M will attend from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. and students with last names beginning with N-Z will attend from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. We ask that parents and students attend their scheduled time frame, so we will have plenty of parking spaces and room for all guests. Please visit our School News tab on our website to view our supply and material list for your preparation for the school year.
I would like to remind our parents and students of our summer reading opportunity for all of our middle school students. Students who participate and turn in their summer reading documentation forms will be eligible to participate in a fall carnival and festival. In addition, students can earn two extra-credit A’s for reading two books. You can learn more about our summer reading program by visiting our website and clicking on the Library tab.
