Beaufort Middle has been nominated for award two years in a row
By Tess Malijenovsky
Beaufort Middle School (BMS) gave a warm welcome last Monday to the Palmettos Finest Judging Team. At 7 a.m. right before the school day starts, the cheer team cheered on the visitors as well as students with signs dressed in school colors and a full suite performance from the band.
For the second consecutive year BMS is a finalist for the Palmettos Finest Schools Award, a statewide award for “excellent instruction and outstanding leaders, augmented by strong family and community involvement and a supportive business community. “
BMS is greatly involved in the community. Its Parent Action Council (PAC) does not solicit anyone in the community without giving something back as part of their “Pay it Forward” mentality. The community helped PAC with their community courtyard. In addition, every student is required to do community service. National Junior Honors Society and Student Council put on a community service event each year, such Toys for Tots and food drives.
They will find out at the end of the month if they win the award.
