Motto :Scholarship, Citizenship, Sportsmanship
Philosophy at Bedford Middle School, we believe in combining efforts of parents, teachers, and
administrators, support staff and the entire community to educate our students. We strive to provide
a learning environment which offers every student the opportunity to reach maximum growth in
conceptual knowledge, self-discipline, physical skills, positive attitudes, and positive self-concept.
It is our goal to use all available resources and teaching methods to provide a curriculum
which meets the unique needs of each student, encourage individual creativity, and provide an
educational climate, which will help individuals experience success while developing potential. We
strive to help our students acquire those skills, which are practical and relevant to a changing world,
and to offer challenges which will broaden their view of the world. Finally, we hope to instill in our
students a love of learning which will enable them to make a worthwhile contribution to society.
LUNCH ANNOUNCEMENT: END of the YEAR
Towards the end of each school year the School Nutrition
Program establishes a cut-off date for meal charges in the school cafeteria.
This cut-off date is established to give the program sufficient time to collect
outstanding charges and clear up accounts before the end of the school year.
This year the last day that students will be allowed to charge school meals is
Friday, May 13th.
Beginning on Monday, May 16th students must either have money with them when
they come through the serving line or have sufficient funds on their student
meal account to cover what is purchased. If a student comes to the cafeteria to
eat breakfast or lunch and does not have the funds to cover the purchase,
cafeteria staff will give the student an alternate meal of toast & milk for
breakfast and a sandwich and milk for lunch until funds are received.
Parents are always welcomed to call the cafeteria manager
at their child’s school to check their child’s account balance. They may also call the School Nutrition
Office at 586-1045 ext. 224. Any questions concerning the cut-off date for
cafeteria charges may be directed to Karen Arthur, School Nutrition Supervisor
at 586-1045 ext. 224. The School Nutrition Program truly appreciates your
