Your News... In Real-Time!
At Bruce Middle School we've decided to go paperless with our newsletter.
There are two advantages to this:
- The saving of paper is a savings in costs and more importantly another step in our ongoing commitment to sustainability.
- By offering news in this format, we can now provide our community with real-time news as it happens, instead of waiting until the end of the month to send out information.

Congratulations to all of our students on a successful school year. You have made it through another school year; assessments are over, lockers are cleaned out, and ipads have been handed in. The friendships you have developed over the year will remain even though everyone goes their own way during the summer. Some of you will be returning to Bruce Middle School next year and we look forward to another great year together. Others will be moving on to other schools and we wish you well in your new adventure. Bruce Middle School students and staff should be proud of the accomplishments you have all made during the 2015-2016 school year. The spirit of caring and teamwork has taken us far along the journey of personal growth. You have fortified our "Tradition of Excellence".
