Principal's Message

Richard Welch
BHMS Principal
Welcome to Big Horn Middle School, home of the RAMS!  
What a wonderful place to live, raise a family, enjoy the outdoors, and get an education! At BHMS our mission is, Learning For All, and we will be doing all we can as a staff, along with parents and students, to reach that goal every day through engaging learning activities. And we will do all in our power to provide a safe environment for every student. We have high academic and behavioral expectations of ourselves and of our students.
This year we have chosen a theme to help focus our character development, and that theme is: BE...BIG HORN!   Each month we will highlight a different character trait on which to improve as staff and students. Some of the traits, for example, will be - BE...Independent, Curious, Persistent. At the beginning of each month we will have an assembly where we will introduce the trait and where we have some fun celebrating.
I'm full of middle school exuberance as I begin serving as the principal of BHMS! There is a lot of work for us to do, and we are up to the challenge. This is my 26th year at Big Horn. I spent the first 20 as a Spanish teacher, and the last 5 as the assistant principal and middle school activities director. I love working with kids and look forward to lots of learning, growing, and even awkward moments during this transition in their lives.
So, welcome to Big Horn Middle School. Contact us with any questions, stop in and visit, volunteer to help. It takes a village to raise a child - so we're all in this together!


Mr. Welch
