    Shout out to our PTA and parent/staff volunteers for making our Valentine’s Dance a success last night.  I hope your Bobcat had a great time.  We had 432 Bobcats attend which is awesome.  Thank you parents for your patience at pick-up because it is always a mad house.  We were done by 9:30 which is a record.  I hope that your Bobcats enjoy their four day weekends and let them know that they only have 14 school days until Spring Break. 

    We are officially only 11 days away from the biggest fundraiser we have done at BMS.  If you have not purchased tickets you can go to to purchase ticket.  There are currently 8 courtside player tickets available for K-8 students.  Below is a list of all of the “players” for the game so come on out for a good time and cheer on/laugh at some of the folks listed below.

    First Order of Business for Newly Revamped Hays Education Foundation: Fill State Education Funding Gaps

    It’s a new day for the Hays Education Foundation – a non-profit that was created to benefit Hays Consolidated Independent School District teachers and students. The Foundation has been working since the pandemic disruption to reinvent itself as an organization that can grow with the district and tackle a changing array of education funding needs. On Thursday, November 9, 2023, the Foundation will host a re-launch event and share its new plans. “The Foundation, a district partner since 1998, has provided valuable assistance to district teachers and students. The first 25 years were successful for the early 21st century Hays CISD. However, with no sign of student population growth slowing, and increasingly uncertain education funding from the state, it’s time to reassess, retool, and remake the Foundation into an organization that can serve Hays CISD for the next 25 years,” said Hays CISD Superintendent Dr. Eric Wright.
