A Message From Mrs. Venghaus
The end of the first 9-weeks has crept up on us. Can you believe it? I want to thank all of our students, teachers, and staff for working hard and our families for all of your support so far this school year. The success of BBJH depends on positivity and determination from all.
If your student was absent today for picture day they will have the opportunity to have pictures taken on October 29th. If you mis-placed the order form, you may order online using the following link: PHOTO ORDER LINK
Lost and Found (located next to the front office)
The lost and found bin is overflowing with sweat shirts, jackets, shoes, water bottles, etc. If your child is missing something, please encourage them to check the lost and found. Any items left at the end of the month will be donated to the NJHS coat drive.
Morning Car Rider Drop-Off
I love seeing our parents and students every morning in the car rider line. We would like to cut down on the number of instructional minutes a handful of students are missing in first period. 3-4 minutes behind in the morning may not seem like a problem, but if it is everyday it can add up to 20 instructional minutes a week. How can you help?
- Have your student ready to unload as soon as you are at front of the line.
- 3 to 4 cars should unload at a time in each line. Our staff is there to help this process.
- Students in the outside lane should walk down to the crosswalk (where I stand) to keep the inside flow of traffic moving.
- We understand there is traffic. If need be, plan to leave the house 5-10 minutes earlier.
We appreciate your cooperation with this.
- No school Monday.

Proud to be your student's principal,
Has a teacher or staff member done a great job supporting your student? Let them know by submitting a B³ Award and we will recognize them on campus!
8th Grade PSAT Testing
BBJH will be administering the PSAT to all 8th grade students on Wednesday, October 27. This is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments. It sets a readiness baseline, allowing students and teachers to pinpoint areas for focused practice as students progress through high school.
The total testing time is 2 hours and 35 minutes (for students without accommodations), and we will begin first thing at 7:15am. All test sections are timed and students are not permitted to test beyond the time limit of each section.The test sections include Reading, Writing & Language, a Math portion without a calculator and the Math portion with a calculator.
All supplies necessary for testing will be provided to the students.
More information to come on testing room assignments and the schedule for the remainder of the day.
Checking in Medication
For the safety of all students, medications must be checked in the clinic and appropriate documentation signed by the parent/guardian. Students may not transport medication. If your child currently has medication that has not been signed into the clinic, please contact Nurse Haynes at 281-356-6088.
We appreciate your help in keeping all of our students safe.
