Welcome to Baechtel Grove Middle School!


You just can't hide that 

Cougar Pride!




  • BGMS is a Gold Ribbon School!
    The California Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to have a program focused on honoring schools while the California Distinguished Schools Program is on hiatus during the period of time required for California to transition to new assessment and accountability systems. The new award will recognize middle and high schools in 2015 and elementary schools in 2016.

    The focus of the California Gold Ribbon Schools Award will be to recognize California schools that have made tremendous gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education for all students, including English learners. These include, but are not limited to, the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, California English Language Development Standards, Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and Next Generation Science Standards.

    Congratulations to Baechtel Grove Middle School for earning such a prestigious honor!

  • 2015-2016 6th Grade Orientation and BBQ
    It's Time! The 6th grade W.E.B. (Where Everyone Belongs) orientation and bbq will be Friday, August 21, 2015. Orientation will be from 8:00 am to 11:30 am. We will have a parent information session with the principal in the library from 8:00 am to 9:00 am. We will then have a BBQ for the students and their parents from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in the cafeteria. 

    Parents, please be sure to have your child at the gym about 10 minutes before 8:00 am. Our 8th grade W.E.B. Leaders are trained and ready for orientation. The heart of the W.E.B. Program is building relationships between 6th graders and 8th graders, so it is essential that parents not participate in the student orientation portion of the day. Please join us in the Library for any questions you might have. And, we would love to have you join us for a barbecue lunch at 11:30 am. This will be a day your 6th grader will remember forever and will be the start of a great year.

    Thank you for your support!
    Maria de los Angeles Munguia, Principal
    Liesl Hendrix, W.E.B Coordinator

  • Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year.
    Hello BGMS Cougars and families~
    We hope you continue to enjoy your summer. It has been nice seeing our students around town. You are all being very respectful, we like that! :) I have a few dates for you guys:
    *August 10: the office opens for business
    *August 17 and 18: WEB Training. Reminder: If you are not there at 8:00 am sharp, you will not be able to participate.
    *August 17: the office will close at 12:00 so that Tami can attend a meeting.
    *August 19-20: 6th grade WEB orientation - new students will get a call from their WEB leader with the details of the day.
    *August 24: First day of school- first bell rings at 8:25
    We know many of you have had your tdap booster shots over the summer. Please bring proof of that to the office on the first day of school, or before, so that we can get that into the computer. Thank you parents for making this happen!
    Students' first period class will be posted in the office window on or around August 21. Students will then receive the rest of their schedule in their first period class on the first day of school.
    We are super excited for the new school year, we know you are too, but we won't tell anyone. :) See you all soon!
