BHS News

From the Principal:
ATTENTION ALL SENIORS - senior dues this year are $35 and this payment must be turned in to Senior Advisors by October 1st. If the payment is made late, the price will increase by $5. The collection of dues is very important to the senior class, as these funds go into paying for caps and gowns for graduation, senior week activities, and more. We appreciate your cooperation.
Thank you,
Your Class Officers

The Fall season is flying by … We just celebrated our Boys and Girls Cross Country senior athletes this week.  To make the night more memorable ... they won!  We are always grateful to our Booster Club for providing roses to add an extra touch to our senior recognition.  You can see that they appreciate it!

Reminder note to All athletes and our Freshman … Whenever student athletes dismiss early from classes to travel to another school for their games - Please know that they are responsible to notify their teachers before class and dismiss themselves according to the bus departure schedule time.  The rule is to leave class six (6) minutes prior to the scheduled bus departure time during school hours.  We request that student athletes demonstrate courtesy to their teachers and fellow classmates when early dismissal occurs.  Thank you!
