Guest Speaker

Before finals, Samantha Suazo shared her story with some of our multi-lingual students. Samantha started a Spanish newspaper, Noticias Montaña, while in high school up in Big Sky. She went on to Yale to study this year. Now she is back at Gallatin High School speaking with students who also speak Spanish to help them navigate high school and beyond.

You can see more of the story at this link.

Food Lunch Support

The move from free lunches during COVID back to the typical fee structure has been difficult for some families. We want to ensure families are aware of the online and printable applications for free and reduced lunch rates, as well as the donations portal. Both links are available from the BSD7 Food Services homepage HERE.

Congratulations to Mr. Kusak and Ms. Geissler's APUSH homeroom for bringing in the most food for Can the Hawks!

Host Families Needed - Please contact Makiko Diehl at for more information.
