Senior Fundraiser/Prom Information

Thank you to all of the seniors that have made accounts and sent out emails and texts for family and friends. We have 10 more days left on the senior fundraiser. It is not too late to send out emails/texts. So far we have raised over $5,000. Last years senior class raised over $9,500.
The following seniors have earned:
  • Charity Wood – 2 free prom tickets ($55 more and you will have your cap and gown too)
  • Carson Hallack – 2 free prom tickets
  • Abbie Pruisner – 1 free prom ticket
  • Vernon Brady Bullock – 1 free prom ticket – ($10 away from 2 free prom tickets)
  • Kaedyn Cook – 2 free prom tickets
  • Alexis Dominguez – 1 free prom ticket ($50 away from 2 free prom tickets)
  • Ashley Bryan – 2 free prom tickets

The money raised helps with the cost of prom (ticket prices) and what we can do for the senior picnic. Last year we were able to have Chick-fil-A sandwiches, an obstacle course and a water slide at the picnic. Every little bit helps.

We still have a few senior t-shirts left. We have 4 size small, short sleeve and 4 size medium, short sleeve. Cost is $15. Come by room 110 if you'd like to buy one.

Harvest House Canned Food Drive: BHS donated a total of 7,046 lbs. of food. A huge thank you to every student that donated canned food items; especially to the Spirit of the Elk Band that donated over 7,000 items and the Volleyball team that donated over 3,000 items. We appreciate everyone for getting into the spirit of charity.
