Welcome to Battle Creek Middle School

  • 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 ...

    February 22, 2021 Update

    It was a great first day of onsite support!  Here are a few reminders for families:

    Families please make sure your student attends on the correct assigned day.  This should be listed on the yellow postcard you received from transportation.  If you are unsure, please do not send your student and call the main office at 651.293.8960 so we can confirm the assigned date for your student to report to school.

    Buses are running their regular routes every day.  You should only send your child on their assigned day even if you see the bus arrive at the bus stop. 

    Students and families needing assistance with the new schedule can log onto a Google Meet where staff are there to support.  The code is BCMSoss.  It is available from 8:30 am – 10:30 am through this Thursday.

    GO PANTHERS!
