From the Principal:
It was an exciting weekend for BHS!
The BHS Science Olympiad Team won its first State Championship this weekend against a highly competitive field. This was an exciting win for the team made even more impressive by the fact that the team is only in its third year! The Team moves on to Nationals in Wisconsin in May!
Our Women’s Basketball team played Bishop Guertin in the State Championship game at SNHU. Playing without senior Bri Purcell the Bulldogs played point for point until the game ending buzzer. It was an impressive combination of grit and team play and just one of those games where “whoever had the ball last won.” This year it was BG… Congratulations on a great season!
Our Men’s Basketball team lost in overtime to Central in one of the most exciting games of the year. Down by eleven points with about four minutes in regulation play the Bulldogs dug in and forced the game into OT. It was an impressive comeback and the team should be very proud of the effort.
The Men’s Hockey team played in the quarter final round against Hanover. It was difficult to watch the game as the “blinding blondes” streaked up and down the ice to win six to one over rival Hanover. The team moves on to the semi-final round, at at JFK arena against Exeter High School.
Important Dates and Events:
From the Counseling Department:
Merrimack High School is hosting a College Fairfrom in their cafeteria and has invited Bedford students and parents to attend. They are expecting a number of popular colleges and universities to attend as well as representatives from the military branches. This is a wonderful opportunity for BHS students to learn about a number of programs at one time. The list of colleges that will be at the MHS fair is located in the hallway outside of the Counseling Department.
From the Deans:
Exciting news! The Humanities department will be offering two additional opportunities for students to take courses and earn credit over the summer. If enough students sign up, we will offer a section of Creative Writing and a section of Public Presentations during the summer school session. For dates and times and to register, please see the Counseling page on the website or follow this link. If a student has requested one of these courses for next year and chooses to enroll over the summer, the course will be deleted from the student’s schedule for next year, creating an open spot for either Managed Time or another elective with open seats. Remember, that the summer course will only run if enough students register.
Prom tickets are currently on sale during lunches in Bulldog Corner. Cost is $75 per person.
Onthere will be a Parent Pre-Prom Party from 7-9. Information on attending or sponsorship opportunities can be found on the website.
Any student who is interested in helping out with the new radio station in Bedford should see Mr. Dempsey.
