BVMS Student Clubs
BV PTA sponsors 14 outstanding opportunities that BVMS students will have weekly for enrichment. We encourage all students to take advantage of these opportunities!
Making Connections is one of our four core values and getting involved in our clubs is a great way to make those connections happen!
Hispanic Heritage Club - Welcomes all students who have an interest in learning and celebrating the diverse cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. This club meets every Wednesday during lunch in room E210. Throughout the year we celebrate and recognize different holidays that exist in the Hispanic community. As well as bring awareness of the many iconic Hispanics that have contributed to the arts, sciences, and politics in and out of the U.S.A.
Art Club - The BVMS Art Club allows students to be creative by providing them with artistic opportunities beyond the walls of the classroom. Students have access to all kinds of art materials in this creative space. Middle school students meet once a week as well as occasionally outside of school for field trips to museums. In addition to allowing students to work on their own creative endeavors, group projects are done, field trips to local museums, as well as various murals and service-learning activities are explored. We will be meeting on Mondays at lunch in room D215.
