BMS Remembers 9/11/01

BMS and CCSD honored and remembered military, police and fire personnel, and EMTs who served September 11, 2001, and continue to serve us today with a moving program. Mr. Bill Cominos, Re-tired NY Fire Chief and First Responder, expressed the importance of everyone working together for the betterment of themselves, their families, and the school. Students got a glimpse of what actually took place on that day. Our 8th graders represented us well. It was a PHENOMENAL day!
