Mrs. Terri Samuels’s 6th grade ELA classes had a book signing for their published collection of poetry. “Where I Am From...” truly is an inspiring collection representing a talented group of young writers. All the students today did a wonderful job reading their poetry to the parents, community members, elected officials, and BMS faculty in attendance. Congratulations students on being published writers.
