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! Please refer to the email sent to all BHS families earlier today for the details on Back-To-School night.

This event is always well attended, so please give yourself plenty of time. Off-site overflow parking will be available at the new District Administrative Office (515 W. Main Street) and at the Field of Dreams. Shuttle service will be available from Field of Dreams.


We hope to see you all on Thursday evening, September 12th!

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. National Merit scholarships are 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.
