Principal's Message

Hello, my name is Melissa Towery. I am very honored to be the principal of James E. Bazzell Middle School.  I have over 20 years of experience in the education field with this school being my home for much of that. I take great pride in the accomplishments and caring atmosphere our school has.

 I am looking forward to the year ahead. We have an exceptional teaching staff here at JEBMS who are continuously working to better their teaching so that your child can develop the skills needed to be successful in our world today. 

  My vision forJames E. Bazzell Middle School is for it to be a safe, comfortable learning environment where both students and teachers are engaged in active learning that involves curriculum that is relevant and challenging.

 As you browse our website you will find there are many opportunities for your child to become involved in our school. We encourage each and every student to work hard and become a part of the James E. Bazzell Middle School family.
