Sean Floyd, BISD Board of Trustees Secretary, and I visited Bailey Inglish Thursday morning to take pictures with the students. It was a joy to see the genuine and innocent excitement in many of their eyes as they were mesmerized with seeing Santa!!

Nolan Ashmore Way Update

Big picture

A few months ago the Board of Trustees approved funds to repave Nolan Ashmore Way after many, many years of patching potholes and resurfacing with asphalt. I am thankful this was a project they decided to complete this year!


Road construction began over the Thanksgiving break to pave Nolan Ashmore Way, with concrete, from Albert Broadfoot going west to meet the new pavement put down during the construction of BHS. Nolan Ashmore Way will be completed during the Christmas Break making a pothole-free road for smoother and safer travel for decades to come.


The final piece of the project will be the installation of gates to close the road to the public during the school day for the safety of our ladies and gentlemen walking back and forth from the main building or the weight room to the stadium or the field houses throughout the day. Signage will be installed notifying hours of road closure once the gates are installed.

Mr. Busbey gets taped to the wall

Students and staff were able to purchase pieces of tape for $1 in order to tape Mr. Busbey, L.H. Rather Asst. Principal, to the wall this Thursday. Funds raised went to buying Christmas presents for LHR students in need.

remind 101

Don't forget that Bonham ISD purchased Remind 101 to facilitate communication between staff, students, and parents to comply with recent legislative mandates to retain all communications in which school business is conducted.


Please contact Amanda Lucas, Software Support Specialist, if you are having difficulties setting up your Bonham ISD Remind 101.

COMMUNITY CONNECTION - BLESSING BOX

The Blessing Box is located on the south side of the Williams Building beside the First Presbyterian Church (corner of 9th and Center St.).


What is the Blessing Box and who benefits from it??


The Blessing Box is a cabinet where anyone can come get the food they need. It is always unlocked and stocked. It may be senior citizens on a fixed income, young families, unemployed individuals, people without homes - the truth is the First Presbyterian Church doesn't really know because it is anonymous and that is their favorite part.


Please point families to the Blessing Box when they are in need AND please consider donating non-perishable food items into the Blessing Box if you can.
