Library Book Sale

Families, thank you for helping us get all books returned to the library as soon as possible. We’re reorganizing the collection this summer, so we want to make sure every book gets put in its proper place!  The library is holding a book sale from June 6-10.  All students are welcome!  The suggested donation is 2 books/$1.  Proceeds will be used to replenish the collection with new fiction.  See flyer below.


Boston Symphony Orchestra Summer opportunity for students

See the attached flyer for information on this great summer program.  Use this link to register by June 10: https://forms.gle/1nYY4JKnhWTJfFGW6.


5-8th parents:  As the end of the year approaches, we are seeking your help in returning all books to the DBM library.  It’s time for inventory, and we would like to replace any lost copies of popular titles if possible.  Thanks for helping your children look around the house for missing books and sending them back to school before June 3.


Family choice for student name and identity

Massachusetts now allows for families to tell their child’s school to use a different name for a student that is not the same as the name on the birth certificate and other legal documents.  Please use this form to tell us at the middle school that you want us to use a name for your child that is different from the legal documents we have from when you enrolled them at the school or in the district.  We will update our Student Information System, PowerSchool, with the information you tell us to use, so your child’s name appears as you direct.  If this is a legal name change, please provide the documents to us so we can make the update for the legal name of the student.  Email ben.doren@bhrsd.org if you have any questions about this form or this process.

Eighth Grade Graduation

We will hold middle school graduation in our traditional way for the first time in two years!  It will be on the regular day we usually hold it, the evening before the last day of school.  So graduation will be on Wednesday, June 15, at 6:30 pm in the gymnasium.  All eighth grade families are invited, as well as our faculty and staff.  There will be more information to come later this year, but I wanted you to know so you can plan for the big event!
