Counseling News

The BHMS counselors and school psychologist are working to form small groups beginning Trimester 2. They will be offering a variety of groups that focus on topics including stress management, navigating social situations/friendships and executive functioning skills.

Counselors will also be going into classrooms with a high school/career focus for 8th-graders and school success skills for our 6th- and 7th-graders.

The topic for Panther Time this month is self awareness. Students will be having conversations about the importance of self-awareness in all aspects of the BHMS community. 

Growing Through Grief

More than 60,000 children and teens in Minnesota will experience the death of a parent or sibling during their school years. Grief is difficult to understand at any age. As a young person navigating the challenges of school and peer relationships, having a loved one die can make those routine challenges overwhelming.

Growing Through Grief offers intensive, in-school support to elementary, middle and high school students coping with the death of a loved one. If you think your student would benefit from this group, reach out to their grade level counselor for more information.

District Information & Events

Girls interested in STEM

Are you a 7th- or 8th-grade girl interested in STEM? Want to learn more about electronics and robotics?

FIRST Robotics Team 2220 is conducting a FREE “Learn How to Solder and Build a Line Following Robot” class for GIRLS ONLY in grades 7 & 8 who reside in Eagan.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) inspires young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.  Learn more at https://www.firstinspires.org/about/vision-and-mission.

Team 2220, a FIRST Robotics FRC team from Eagan High School, will be offering in-person classes to learn how to solder (with lead-free solder and the appropriate safety equipment) and how to build a line following robot. The equipment and supplies for the class are valued in excess of $100, but the classes will be offered at NO COST to girls in 7th and 8th grade who reside in Eagan.

The robot and soldering equipment and supplies will go home with the girls at the end of the classes so they may continue to explore their interest in STEM.

Make sure that your student can attend on BOTH of these dates before applying.

7-9 p.m. Monday, January 3
7-9 p.m. Wednesday, January 5
