Student Agenda

  • Principal’s Award

    At the end of the year, the Principal recognizes students who earn a minimum 4.0 GPA and all 1’s in citizenship in quarters 1, 2 and 3 on report cards.

     

    Golden Panther Award

    This prestigious award is presented to a select group of 8th grade students who have earned a minimum 4.0 GPA in every quarter of middle school, through 3rd quarter of 8th grade. In addition to the GPA requirement, Golden Panther recipients have also earned the highest citizenship marks (1s) in every class, every quarter. Based on grades and citizenship, the teachers at BRMS view our Golden Panther Award recipients as the highest possible achievement as a panther!  This distinctive award is presented to students at the Eighth Grade Dance.
