Outrun the Quarantine Blues
May 1-3, 2020
The Quarantine Blues are a real thing! We’re away from all of our friends, family, churches, and most of our normal activities. The only place we can go beyond the four walls of our house is the great outdoors (and maybe the grocery store to stock up on toilet paper). So, why not join together as the BMS community and Outrun Those Quarantine Blues in the BMS Thunder Bolt!
We can’t gather in large groups, so how does this work? It’s simple! First, you decide which distance you want to race. I have posted training plans for all distances in your Google Classroom, but you’ll need to start soon! There are only a few weeks until we all get out there and race! Next, fill out this race registration form and share it with me or mail it to school at the address below. Make sure to mark your race distance and whether you’d like a race t-shirt. There is no cost to race if you don’t want a shirt! If you’d like a shirt, please mark the size and send a check with your registration form to the school address. We’ll be there to hand out race shirts at the first schoolwork/drop off at school in May (if needed). If you would like your shirt mailed, please include an extra $5 to cover the cost of shipping and we’ll mail it to the address listed on your form when they’ve been completed. Then, on the weekend of May 1-3 pick which day and time works best for you, get out there, and do your best...at an appropriate social distance of course! After you’ve completed your course, send your time to Mrs. Weaver by email, and we’ll post the race results at the beginning of the next week. If you know anyone else beyond the BMS community that would like to participate, please let them know! Anyone is welcome, so encourage your whole family!
Please have all registration forms returned to Mrs. Weaver by email, sharing an electronic copy with me, or mailing your form to the school by Friday, April 17.
Grandparent's Day 2019
We had a lovely time of fellowship with the grandparents of our students in Kindergarten - 8th grade on October 24th & 25th. Thank you, grandparents, for your priceless gifts of time and encouragement. Your legacy of faithfulness to the Lord is having eternal impact on the next generation!
We are educating students from many Christian faith backgrounds. Some people believe that Belleville Mennonite School is actually a school for Amish or primarily for Mennonites-a surprising statement for those who attend BMS and know about the school. Despite being located in the heart of Amish country, BMS is a PreK-12th grade school offering a Christ-centered, excellent education to students of all Christian faiths.
