Buckeye Valley Middle School Prepared for Year Ahead 

By:  Mr. Brian Baker, Principal 


The staff at Buckeye Valley Middle School is not only excited to welcome in a new school year but they are also looking forward to expanding upon the BVMS recent success in the classrooms. Strong state testing results continue to provide us with the reassurance that what we are doing in the classroom is working. This past year we were awarded the state’s prestigious Momentum Award (only 5% of schools receive this in Ohio), and the National Pacesetter award (given to only four schools in Ohio). The staff will continue to support the district wide academic goals by challenging all students at their level as well as using assessment tools available to continue to improve the instruction.   We will use the 2019-20 academic year to challenge not only our students but our staff to meet the high standards that we as a district continually strive to meet and exceed.  


As we prepare to head back to the classroom, we are excited to announce some improvements that were made over the summer months.  As you may know, the middle school is more than 20 years old and because of that, some of the windows needed replacing. What is very is exciting for students will be the new gym floor and scoreboards!.  These improvements will not only improve the energy efficiency of the building but will also allow our students and athletes to compete in an improved facility. While we were all out enjoying our summer, the BVMS custodial staff did an amazing job getting the entire building shined up for the start of the new year.  A big thank you to everyone who worked hard over the summer months to get the building ready to welcome students back!  


And finally, the school district has instituted Raptor a new sign in and security process not only at BVMS but throughout the district.  This new sign in process not only allows the staff to know who is in the building at all times but also provides background information on all visitors to help ensure the safety of our students and staff  in the building.  


We are excited for the upcoming year and look forward to returning to the classrooms.
