BHS First Lego League Regional Qualifier

Burleson High School will host the largest LEGO Qualifier in the State of Texas from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday Dec. 9, 2017. There will be over 550 team participants with more than one-third of the teams comprised of BISD students who have received grant funding.

This will be a fun event for the entire family as this year’s Hydrodynamics Challenge focuses on addressing our water shortage. Students will compete in several categories, including robot games, teamwork, and problem solving.

The Elk Strutters will host their annual Christmas Craft Fair adjacent to the Qualifier, so there will be lots of fun times with hot cocoa and Santa, too!

Faces of Hughes Art Show

Our second annual ‘Faces of Hughes’ art show is coming on up Tuesday 12/19/2017! It will be at the HMS cafe from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Every art student will have an artwork sent off to be professionally matted and framed, and the BEST part is that the mat and frame will be for sale on the date of the show for $35.00 + tax! We will accept cash and check on the date of the show for the mat and frame. These would make PERFECT gifts! We can’t wait to see you there and for your art student to show off all of their hard work!
