New Family Welcome
If you are new to the Briarcrest system, mark your calendars for Wednesday, July 29 at 5:00 pm to attend a new family welcome event in Sparks Chapel. We will discuss many aspects of Briarcrest Christian Middle School such as navigating onCampus, uniforms, schedules, Sodexo, Orientation Day, PTF and all things middle school.
This meeting is for all NEW middle school students and ONE parent only please.
First Day of School
The first full day of classes will be Wednesday, August 12. We will begin the day promptly at 8:00 a.m. and all dress code regulations will be in effect.
Each student at BCMS is required to have a student ID card. This card is not only useful for purposes of identification, but can also be used as a debit card for purchases made in the cafeteria. Students may obtain this card from the Saint Shop locations during the same hours and schedule listed on the Saint Shop
webpage. Current students may continue to use the 20/21 cards. Updated photos for the cards may be taken upon request for a $5 fee after school day pictures have been returned. Note: While cafeteria workers will try to inform students when the balance on the ID card falls below $15.00, it is the responsibility of each student/parent to make certain that adequate funds are credited to the card for all necessary purchases. Students may not "charge" food or other items
Ensuring the safety of our students as they enter and exit the campus each day is a high priority for us at BCMS. Information regarding morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up will be given at the parent information meeting on Registration Day. When pick-up of multiple students is necessary, students should report to the pick-up zone of the youngest sibling.
Code of Conduct
As we enter a new school year, please be reminded that incidents of inappropriate behavior as defined in the Student Code of Conduct are addressed whether on or off-campus. Parents and students are encouraged to thoroughly read the policy as presented in the
Please remember that our students are expected to dress appropriately for outdoor sporting events as well as school-day activities. Our expectation in this regard is similar to our in-school policy: modesty and appropriateness.
For example, mid-thigh shorts are acceptable for football games, but "short-shorts" are not. Bare midriffs, halter-tops, etc., are never acceptable. Students are reminded that they represent BCMS both at school and in attendance at school-sponsored events. The 2020-21 Dress Code is available in the Downloads Section.
Supply lists for Grades 6, 7, and 8 may be found on this page. If your student is taking physical education 1st Semester, you DO NOT NEED to purchase a P.E. uniform. Books and classroom supplies may be brought to school on the first day of classes.
All vehicles entering the campus must display a BCS decal. Two free decals will be provided to each new BCMS family. Returning families in need of additional decals may purchase them for a fee of $5 per decal. Decals may be picked-up or purchased in the Middle School Office.
Fall Sports Tryouts
Fall Sports Tryout/Workout Information can be found on the Middle School Athletic Webpage.
All students must have a physical dated after April 15, 2020 to participate in a school-sponsored sport. These physicals must be on file in the Middle School Office prior to participation in any of our athletic endeavors for 20/21. A physical can be obtained from your private physician or through the Briarcrest Sports Physical Program. Many have found the walk-in clinics at Kroger stores to be helpful.
Required Athletic Forms
