Principal's Message

Welcome to Black River Middle School.  We hope you are ready for a year that is challenging, rewarding and exciting.  Your success depends on the development of regular attendance, effective study habits and self-discipline. This handbook has been carefully prepared so that it may help you succeed at Black River Middle School and more importantly, become an integral part of our school

The vision of Black River Middle School is to provide our students with opportunities and resources to become well rounded, responsible citizens who work to achieve their maximum potential. BRMS is committed to pride, excellence, and in being the best school that we can be.  We hope that you will become committed with us and become involved with the various activities BRMS has to offer.

Middle school is a time of academic, social and emotional growth.  This time comes with normal challenges as students and parents sail the uncharted waters of adolescence.  Communication is an essential part of this journey: please join us in placing a priority on regularly sharing information.  We can not help or resolve issues that we are not aware of. The staff will work with families to assist as necessary and connect families with local resources that help meet all our students needs. 

The BRMS staff wishes you a successful year!

Cathy Aviles

Our Secretary

Mrs. Joanne Maslanka keeps our school office running smoothly.  She appreciates your timely messages regarding non-attendance and notes when students return.  We encourage all students to get to know Mrs. Maslanka in the middle school office.  It makes her day when students share a smile and use their great manners.  
Go Middle School Pirates!
