Nine Minutes

There are 9 minutes during the day that have the greatest impact on a child:


  • the first 3 minutes right after they wake up
  • the 3 minutes after they come home from school
  • the last 3 minutes of the day before they go to bed



As parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, god parents or friends, we know we should make those minutes count and help our children feel loved, special and accepted.


I do not think our school children are any different.


While we don't see them the first 3 minutes right after they wake up.....we do see them the first minute they get on the bus, walk into the building, through your cafeteria serving line or into your gym or classroom. That minute is just as important to your relationship at school.


You also each see your students that last minute before they leave you......make that moment count as well!


Each day children (our students) need meaningful eye-to-eye conversations. It is especially important to slow down and look them in the eye, listen and genuinely respond.


As for the personal children in your lives - hug them, straighten their hair, pat him or her on the back and tell them how proud you are of them every day. A simple touch makes them feel connected to a parent or loved one in ways that words never will.


Remember, actions speak louder than words!

BHS Seniors Take the Texoma Promise

Representatives from Grayson College came to BHS on Monday to talk about college enrollment, the FAFSA and the new Texoma Promise Program. In addition, they highlighted the various courses and certificate areas of study Grayson College has to offer today's students.


Texoma Promise is a program to help remove the financial barrier from a student who desires to attend school to learn a trade or skill or obtain a degree.


BHS Seniors completed their application to Grayson College, worked on or completed their FAFSA and signed the Texoma Promise banner.
