MARK YOUR CALENDARS - BHS BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT SEPT. 12TH

The High School is off to a great start and we look forward to you joining us Thursday, September 12, 2019, for a wonderful evening of sharing!

Back-to-School Night is an opportunity to meet the teacher, see the classrooms, and learn about our exciting technology and curriculum.

The intent of Back-to-School Night is to experience your student's school day and familiarize yourself with our wonderful staff and facilities.

More information regarding Back-to-School Night will be communicated next week, just want to be sure you "save the date!"

PSAT/NMSQT - October 16th

The 'touch of fall" we had this week reminded us that fall testing isn't all that far off (ok, it's not until mid-October) but for our Juniors, it's a big deal with lots of potential scholarship money on the line. All Juniors will take the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday. October 16, 2019 with a chance to earn National Merit scholarships, a prestigious resume builder and financial boost.
More information regarding testing will follow.
October 16, 2019 will be a regular attendance day for Freshmen, Sophomores and Seniors.
