Hello B-UMS Students! Today starts National School Counselor Week 2023! More than 100,00 school counselors nationwide will be participating in the week’s festivities. Many schools will be hosting special events and activities to celebrate this important week. Your counselors at B-UMS have created quiet focus days for you to reflect and think daily about how you can make a difference! Today’s quiet focus day theme is: “DREAMING BIG.” Author Carl Sandburg said, “Nothing happens unless first we dream.” We want to encourage you to take a minute today to think about your dreams. Dreams don’t have to be about school, grades, a job, or a career. They can be about your feelings or even helping someone else achieve their dreams. What dreams do you have? What is one thing you can do today that moves you one step closer to that dream? Have a great Monday!

B-UMS is diligently working to get the 2021-2022 yearbooks printed and delivered to B-UMS. There have been manufacturing hic-ups, and we are working to have the situation rectified as quickly as we can. Thank you for your continued patience and support.
