Boones Creek Middle School losing man...

BCMS did lose some teachers to other higher paying systems, to retirement, and some did transfer within the system to be closer to home or other reasons. It happens to every school every year. Many of those teachers will be missed others not so much. As far as the boosters go, just when has the school had a better group working for our student athletes? It is funny how people can get on an anonymous site and piss and moan like a bunch of entitled deadbeats. If you think you can do better get off your ass and volunteer or shut the hell up! Personally I would like to thank the administration, the teachers, the assistants, the boosters, the volunteers, the coaches, and anyone else who works to make BCMS a great school.

Edmonds is not a team player. He really does not work well with school volunteer groups other than the athletic booster leaders which HAVE TURNED OUT TO BE JOKES. He allowed them to have the athletic banquet downtown JC in a small space and terrible parking, not to mention coming out with our kids in a bad part of town. Oh and the big ass kissing booster leaders failed to have enough food. Did I mention they overspent when in tough times money could have been better spent. Wait til they get to Daniel Boone-parents will shut down these two who are all about look at what we do.
You are a moron. The money spent was raised by thre booster club with a lot of hard work done by the 2 leaders of the booster club. Go post somewhere else Treta.

The real reason that the teachers left was Mr.Ed They wanted to get away from him. Plain and Simple No Excuses Mr. Ed. He ran them off. It was their choice.

I would say you are way out of line making comments like that! If you know so much about the sports banquet than you,obviously, were there and you apparently did not help so how about shutting your mouth? These two ladies did an outstanding job! We would be so lucky to have them involved at Boone instead of a bunch of whiney ass Parents who don't lift a finger unless its to point out someone elses fault! If you go to BCM, I hope how soon you get out!

The sports banquet was wonderful thank you for doing this for our kids at B.C.M.S. The Boosters took time out of there schedule to do this on there time and not yours. If you like to know what goes on with the booster club feel free to come to a meeting and help them out with booster events and help out at ballgames so they can watch there kids play ball. Thanks to our principal for doing a great job at our school.

Look Bama Bastard if you think Edmonds is doing a good job its because you are one of the handful of people he caters to. Any improvement at BCMS is because of the teachers not him as he touts. Edmonds is a self promoter-ITS ALL IN THE TEACHERS not the him.

I bet you don't know what goes on at the school or the booster club meetings and ball games. The boosters does a super job and with no one helping them out who else would do it. I don't see you stepping to the plant to help them.
funny was right

There is alot of teachers moving around the whole county its not cause of the principal.We have good principals and teachers in the county.The sports banguet was ok they could had it at the school or at a church like past years and bring a cover dish and save the money on renting the place and keep the money for the kids that plays sports.I heard they ran out of food maybe they should had parents to dish out the food for everyone and i heard it was to small to.

Edmonds does not truly care about the kids. I had a meeting with him and he was checking his email during the meeting. He is extremely rude! Out with Edmonds and some of the other teachers as well. This is the worst school. If you are able to send your child to another school, do it.

Mike Edmunds sucks as a principle, the only teachers that remain there are his cronies who have been there for years. He allows bullying of students by coaches and assistant coaches and then preaches BS about EPIC. He is a disgrace to the system!!

<quoted text>By law evaluations can be viewed if their is reason-this will get easier in TN as laws progress to deal with poor educators. There is a website you can visit to see evaluations of schools. Nice try Mike-you know the Tell Tennessee website-god luck with test scores this year.
With the new TEAM evals all evaluations are made public.

Mike Edmonds is doing a good job. He is going on four years now as Principal and faced many challenges,staff changes for the better,teacher evaluations and curriculum changes. There are staff members who cannot be pleased and some who have a hard time seeing their fellow teacher as their leader. The school improved in many ways last year and will continue. Mike truly cares about the students. When faced with a discipline issue he uses common sense and compassion. It is easy to hand down punishments but for the good of the child you must look at their home life too. Regarding the sports banquet the ladies in charge did a fine job. The shortage on food was cater's error and quickly resolved. To fault these ladies for their efforts is ignorant. They wanted something really special for the players. It must be easy to sit on your ass behind a computer and criticize. I would suggest getting to know the principal and what he faces day to day. I also would suggest helping the boosters in the work they do for the players not themselves.
The boosters do a great job in spite of Mikey.

The problem with Mikey is he thinks it's spelled EPIK. Haha!! Seriously he does cater to a select few and degrades anyone who doesn't agree with him. He needs to go.

There was a post about principal making suggestive or inappropriate remarks to staff. Post has disappeared but curious as to what kind of remarks were made?
