About Bemis

  • About our school

    Welcome to West Bemis Middle School. We are a brand new school created by JMCSS Vision 2020. We are the zoned middle school for the South cluster of Jackson-Madison Co. Schools. Our elementary students come from Denmark and South Elementary, and our students leave for South Side High School when their 8th grade year is finished. Some of our course offerings are Physical Education, Instrumental Music, Art, Chorus, as well as honors classes in all academic areas. Sports teams include football, cross-country, cheerleading, track, softball, basketball, and soccer.

    Situated in the historic area of Bemis, this school has quickly become a staple in our community. We are looking forward to partnering with you to build traditions and ensure the success of our students.

News & Announcements


    The West Bemis Middle Junior Beta Club has been very busy with their Fall Community Service Project.  The club served their community with the beautification of Stella Duncan Park in Bemis.  Thank you to the members who worked so hard, our leaders who organized, and to the businesses/people who made donations.  Go by there and enjoy their hard work!


    Stella Duncan Park Project


     On September 21, 2017, West Bemis Beta Club displayed Pinwheels for Peace out in front of our building. Pinwheels for Peace was established as a world effort to promote peace and tranquility. It is a global effort for "Whirl Peace". It is part of Peace One Day. Every year since 2005, on September 21st, schools, organizations, and people across the world create and display pinwheels of all sizes and color. It started as an art project by two teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillia, as a way for students to express their feelings about what is going on in their world. Last year over 500,000 pinwheels were planted to celebrate this day.

    Daily Journal Prompt Prompts Students To Take Action
    Students start their ELA class each day with a writing prompt preparing for TNReady. August 30, 2017 was no different than any other day in this class. However, the journal prompt that day became personal for several students. The prompt was as follows: If you were in Texas during Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath, how would you feel? How do you think others felt? What would you want people to do to help you and your community after the storm? What could we do as a championship class to help our brothers and sisters in Texas? After writing their responses to today's journal and having an oral discussion, several students asked to take part in a service project that would help victims of Hurricane Harvey. Their teacher agreed to support their efforts and made contact with local organizations to get a specific list of needed supplies. The teacher said, "I am very proud of these students for stepping up and being good neighbors. This idea was student inspired, student driven, and student accomplished."
