My child will be attending next year but I have many concerns after talking with current BCMS parents . Why do many of the best teachers keep transferring out, why is there no PTA and why is there little parental involvement?

I am transferring my child. I suggest you keep your child away from this school.

The principal alone would be a good reason to transfer or stay away from Boones Creek Middle School.

This school has so much potential. I think under the right leadership the school would do much better. Parental involvement and teacher morale is very poor. Maybe if enough parents and teachers contacted the superintendent and school board positive changes could be made.

I have two children who have went through BCMS. The principal is a very weak link. The teachers have been there for years and are "comfortable". There a some good ones however the best is moving to vice principle.

Weak in community relations and with parents. There is no longer a PTA because the almighty wanted to control everyone and everything making it impossible to work with him. Low morale overwhelms you when you walk in.

School Board has many numbers unlisted. If you are elected to this office you should be required to have a listed number. Hammond is very reachable. I cannot find Silver and Williams. Parents need to call them with your complaints.
no no

I think Ms. Harrell will be a big plus for the BCMS.

I heard that Edmonds is not going to be the principal this upcoming school year. Has anyone else heard this?

Just believe half of what you see on these posts. I will believe what I see on the first day of school in the fall. Why does everyone attack this school?

Because it has serious problems. A serious lack of compassion from certain people. The children at BCM deserve better.

We need people in our schools who support children and their needs not just ones who need a pay check. I am very proud of Hammond. He wants what is right for all.
agree but

I agree Hammond along with other board members care but I don't understand "ones who need a paycheck."

The school needs new leadership. Big Belly is losing good teachers. Curious to see if school rating drops next year. Boones Creek deserves better.

Mr
Hammonds main concern is for the children. He has been on the board for a few years now and I have yet to see him "sway" from his duties as a school board member. He is very approachable and easy to talk to. He takes every concern to heart and leaves no stone unturned

We will see what he is made of very soon. Director and his Assistant Directors looking for new contract in June or could have more years of the same old song and dance.
