We would like to welcome you to our Bantam Family! It is our primary goal at Bates Middle School to offer our students an education in a positive and safe environment that meets both their academic and social needs. We want to provide our students with an education that will enable them to be productive, competent and life-long learners who will be able to compete in a global society. One of the best ways to foster a relationship with your child’s teacher is to schedule a conference via phone call or in person. In an effort to improve home and school communication, we are also available through email. Collaboratively, we can help your child have a successful middle school experience.
Dr. Ayesha Hunter, Principal, Bates Middle School
Register for Parent Portal
Bates Middle School invites parents or a legal guardian to utilize PowerSchool Parent Portal to access grade and attendance information of their children through this secure Internet connection.
How to register? Visit the BMS Guidance Department with valid picture ID from 7:30am to 3:30pm on school days and during Open House to obtain your child's access code. Then go to the Parent Portal link under Parent Corner on the BMS home page to set up your account.
Registered Last Year? If you have a username and password from last year, you can still use that login. If you have trouble, please call 775-0711. Ask for Beverly Sowell, Erica Lyles or Marcenia McDuffie for assistance.
Have more than one child in the district? You can use a single login, but you will need a separate access code for each child.
Student Passwords Reset
Student information has been updated by the district in eChalk. All passwords have been reset so we will now be helping students log in to individual student accounts. We are still working on our webpages but feel that you're going to like all the new options available to you with both eChalk and PlanetHS.
PlanetHS will host our teacher class pages and assignments, while eChalk will provide students with an email account and storage space for saving their work.
