Testing This Week

Juniors and Seniors each have an upcoming test this Wednesday, on March 1st. Juniors will be taking the SAT, while seniors will be taking the TSI.

Juniors are encouraged to link their College Board account to the free Khan Academy SAT resource, and can follow the instructions on this page to do so.

Most seniors needing to take the TSI are already enrolled in Texas College Bridge, which is a great TSI study program. Students are able to be exempt from the TSI through their SAT scores (530 Math, 480 Reading). See your English/Math teachers for questions about Texas College Bridge. For questions about TSI or SAT tests, please contact

Starting Tuesday, February 21 and going through Friday, March 10, our Emergent Bilingual 6th - 12th grade students will be taking the TELPAS (Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System) Test. The students who are taking this assessment have been given letters indicating date, time, and location of testing.

For more information about the state TELPAS test, visit site:

Interim Window 4 is fast approaching! Please make sure your students are at school -- on time to take their Interims. Tests and dates are as follows:

Math 6th - 8th grade Interims begin this Monday, February 28th.

Science 8th grade Interims begin this Wednesday, March 1st.

Social Studies 8th grade and US History (HS) Interims begin this Thursday, March 2nd.

Students must bring their Chrome/MacBooks fully charged and their chargers to be able to take the test.

If you have any questions or concerns about TELPAS or Interim testing, please contact Amy Jo Wagner at 817.815.7119 or email:

Wrestling Goes to State

The Bobcat Wrestling season has come to an end. We could not be prouder of our wrestlers, especially our seniors. Calliope Haefner placed 5th and Cameron McGuire placed 4th at the Region 2-5A Wrestling Meet. Cameron then took it a step further placing 7th at the 5A State Wrestling meet. We are going to miss our seniors, but we are very excited about next year with 16 Regional Qualifiers Returning.

Orchestra Earns Top Marks

Congratulations to our students in the High School Honors and Symphonic Orchestras as they received superior ratings at the UIL Orchestra Contest & Sightreading Contest this past week. The Sweepstakes award is the highest award a music organization can receive. This makes the 17th & 18th Sweepstakes award for the BMHS Orchestra program since the opening of the school in 2011.
