Welcome to BMU! Home of the Bucks!
"Wildlife Encounters" at BMU

BMU Students were recently enthralled by a presentation of exotic animals given by Wildlife Encounters right here in our own Garvin Library! Topics of conservation and biology were explored in depth as students observed animal behaviors from up close. Thanks to the 'anonymous donor' who made this event possible!

Two Interesting Events

On February 7, there were two interesting events that were held at BMU - A Chinese New Year's Dragon Dance and a reenactment of the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies Parade. Have a look!



Blue Mountain elementary students celebrated the lunar new year with a dragon dance.  The dragon was borrowed from the Asian Studies Outreach Program at UVM.  One of the program's scholars, Gerry Gatz, gave presentations about Chinese dragons to grades k-5 earlier in the day.  The pre-school met the dragon with “fire-breathing” dragon puppets they had made.  Delicious traditional almond cookies were made by the BMU APPS class to share with the dragon-watchers.   As part of her senior exit project Cindy Hoang was chief dragon handler.



Ms. Burn's fourth grade class reenacted the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies Parade.


BMU Holiday Concert

Hour of Code

BMU students recently participated in the "Hour of Code", which was a part of Computer Science Education Week. This was a very exciting program that was created to entice students to experiment with computer programming, or 'coding'. If you are interested in more information on this check out this link.
