      Weekly Update from our Principal

      Principal Dian Carter

      Greetings BMHS Family & Happy Sunday!

      There’s a saying that goes, “Teachers make the world a better place.”  As we finish this unprecedented school year, I offer love and gratitude to our faculty and staff for remotely teaching our children and to our parents/guardians for walking this journey with us.  Our students are resilient and have been faced with challenges we could never imagine.  An additional note of thanks to teachers and parents/guardians for their understanding and patience with the challenges of AP Exams this year.  

      Our last day of remote learning is Thursday, June 4th.  Although we are unsure of what the summer will bring, I pray that families will have the opportunity to rest, rejuvenate and enjoy beautifully sunny summer days!  

      And finally, we are diligently planning for the 2020-2021 school year and will share a FAQ document in a few days. Dr. Barnhardt, our new president and I will be hosting town hall meetings in a few weeks.  We are hoping to be able to answer additional questions you have about our anticipated start in the fall.  As we continue to follow the suggestions of our state and county government officials, we appreciate your support and patience.

      BMHS Family Crisis Fund

      More than 68% of our students receive tuition support. One of the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic is that many members of our McNamara Family who were already struggling have been pushed past the brink.  

      We seek to rally together to help our friends, neighbors, and fellow Mustangs.  Bishop McNamara is doing everything possible to help, but much more is needed for emergency tuition and crisis support. We know these are uncertain times for all of us.

      Thank you for considering a gift of any amount to the Bishop McNamara Family Crisis Fund today. 

      Together, our #BMHSFAMILY will get through this unprecedented crisis!


      Parents, Students, Faculty and Staff - check Maccess and your email box several times per day for important information!
