• School holds inaugural BAMS Beautification Day

    bams beautBellefonte Area Middle School held its first-ever BAMS Beatification Day on Aug. 9 for school staff to team up with the community to help spruce up the grounds. Principal Sommer Garman said the idea to hold the event came during the summer when discussing areas of the school that needed improvement.

    “Our custodial crew works their butts off to get the inside of the building clean, so we wanted to give them a beak and not add more to their plate,” Garman said.

    Participants helped weed, lay mulch, cut overgrown bushes and more.
