We believe middle school can be the most exciting part of a child’s education. At Battle Creek Middle, every student is part of a team − two in each grade level − that meets monthly to socialize, learn and reflect on the middle school experience. Teachers not only teach students, but partner with them to provide encouragement and inspiration. Learn more ...

Greetings, Panther Students, Families and Staff!
This is Principal Paddock with the BCMS school updates for the week of January 18th. Monday, January 18th there is no school as we observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is also a national day of service. How will you serve your community?
January 19th is an A-Day. Students will attend Daily Foundations/Study Skills at 8:30 am, Period 5A, Period 6A, and Period 7A.
On January 21st, please help us invite friends and family new to Battle Creek to the BCMS Virtual Showcase and Open House from 5:30-6:30 pm. Families are asked to RSVP and a Zoom link will be provided to attend.
The end of Quarter 2 is quickly approaching. Student make sure you are finishing strong by completing missing work, showing up to Google Meets, and asking questions you may have.
The last year has been challenging for our BCMS community, family, and nation. As the late, great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”. Our community has proven we are up for any challenge no matter how great and we stand upon the work of those who came before us to create a better BCMS community.
I have decided to stick with love, hate is too great a burden to bear. -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Take time to love one another. Take care, be well, and GO PANTHERS!
