BHS Parent Newsletter

September 7, 2018

BHS students and teachers made it through another hot week. Thankfully, the weather has taken a turn towards fall and next week should be much cooler. By now, students and teachers are settling into the school year. Next week, students will begin WIN block activities and will have a chance to see teachers for extra help, to make up assignments, and for enrichment activities.

National Moment of Silence

On Tuesday, September 11th at 8:46 am we will participate in the National Moment of Silence. This event has become an annual tribute to not only those individuals lost on 9-11 but also the many who continue to serve our communities and nation. As we reflect, we will unite with millions of citizens across the country in a moment of peaceful consideration.

Meet the Teachers Night

The annual Meet the Teachers Night will take place on Wednesday, September 19th beginning at 6:00 p.m. Parents/guardians will have an opportunity to meet with administration at the start of the evening. Then, they will follow their child/children's schedule. You will meet teachers and learn about the class expectations and curriculum. Please bring a copy of your child's schedule with you that evening. You can ask your child to text you a photo of his/her schedule.
