With the school year wrapping up, many BSM students are anticipating possible new changes in the upcoming year. One particular idea circling the school is a completely redesigned bell schedule starting this fall.

The new schedule is speculated to increase lunch times by 5 minutes and reduce the number of days that include homeroom. The new routine would also increase the length of the homeroom period to 25 minutes rather than 15 minutes.

However, the exact date when these changes could be announced is unknown. “I don’t know when the final decision will be made, [but it is a possibility],” Assistant Principal Mr. Matt Weingartz said.

It doesn’t take away from instructional time and makes the day a little less hectic.”

Throughout the past few weeks, the Student Council was given the opportunity to discuss and vote about the changes. Junior secretary Cylysce Doe thinks longer lunches would be beneficial, but she thinks taking out homeroom would be detrimental for students. “Although I do like having longer lunches, I don’t like that it would get rid of homeroom because I kind of like homeroom in the morning. It kind of breaks up my day, and I can get work done as well, ” Doe said.

Teacher Mr. Michael Becker supports the new changes and believes they will be good for the BSM community. “It doesn’t take away from instructional time and makes the day a little less hectic. I think we do a lot of running around with an eight period day, so I think it takes some of that out and takes some of the stress out for students, ” Becker said.
