~First 6 Weeks~

What's Happening at BISD

We had a very busy first 6 weeks at Broaddus High School! We finished the first 6 weeks and are halfway through the second 6 weeks and this time has FLOWN by!


On September 15th Juniors and Seniors took the ASVAB test. Scores were received and gone over with students in a High School Career Seminar on October 6th. The students were given a breakdown of strengths and weaknesses based on their individualized results. They were also shown possible careers that would go well with their results.


BHS hosted a Blood Drive on September 20th with 24 students, teachers, and community members being able to successfully donate blood.


Later that evening we hosted a Texas Workforce Success Night in which students and family members were able to learn about what the Texas Workforce has to offer. Students and their families were given great resources to help cover the cost of college and expenses related to furthering their education. The Texas Workforce also presented great information on how to utilize services even through later adulthood. Students and families were also fed a wonderful meal of pulled pork sandwiches prepared by Mr. Joey Woods.


September 22nd was the annual See You at the Pole. Students were served donuts and water and given a See You at the Pole bracelet. After an opening prayer, students divided into smaller groups for additional prayer time before starting the regular class day.


On September 24th, Mrs. Shelby Weatherford's Culinary Class attended a training session on proper food handling and earned their Food Handler License. It's always very exciting when students earn certifications!!


On September 28th, a group of seniors attended a College Fair hosted by Hemphill ISD. These students were able to speak to colleges about degree plans, admission requirements, the cost of attending, and more. Each student left with lots of information from many colleges throughout Texas.


Broaddus High School hosted our District Cross Country Meet on October 13th. Our Varsity boys advanced to Regionals as a team with John Patten and Colton Modisette qualifying individually for Regionals as well! It was great to see the teamwork of all staff and students on this day. It was a great day at BHS!

Teacher Highlight - Mrs. Teryn Travis

Mrs. Teryn Travis prepared a high interest, hands on lesson during a unit on the cell cycle.

Her Biology students used their knowledge on the cell cycle to decorate cookies to resemble the four stages of Mitosis. Students presented their model and explained their stage of Mitosis to judges. The judges ranked each group based on explanation and cell model and declared a winner!

What a great way to demonstrate knowledge while increasing interest and engagement!
