Last Chance: Yearbook Sales

Wednesday June 5 - Friday, June 7, during lunch at BMS and SHS

CMS students will have one last chance to purchase a yearbook. To reserve your yearbook, bring in $35 cash or check (made payable to CMS). There will be limited yearbooks available. First come, first served. Sales will take place at Bedford Middle School and Staples High School during the CMS lunch wave.

Big thanks to the folks who have signed up to take orders!

End of Year Activities: Breakfasts, Ice Cream, Luncheon

Bedford annually runs some great student and faculty events that we traditionally have not - but this year, of course, would like to join in. And we neither budgeted for them nor ran any fundraisers. We need financial assistance.


During the last week of school, we are planning for grade level breakfasts, ice cream treats, and a last faculty luncheon.

We are so looking forward to celebrating with our students and staff!

Thank you for all your support - and thanks to the many who got the ball rolling!

8th Grade Boys: Waterpolo!

Water polo is one of the fastest growing sports in the US - and Staples Water Polo team invites you to join them! The team competes with top high school programs on the east coast. A strong swimming background is preferred but WILLINGNESS TO TRY A NEW SPORT AND BE A TEAM PLAYER is most important. Captain's practices for the Fall 2019 season typically begin mid-August.

Freshman Head Coach, Steve Anderson, and members of the Varsity Staff will also be there to share the program's philosophy, how they encourage multi-sport athletes and highlight the benefits of being part of a team for rising freshmen and for teens in general. We'll also have a few parents on hand to share their experiences.
