Spirit Wear, take 2

If you missed purchasing Spirit Wear during Jamboree in August, you are in luck! A representative will be selling t-shirts and sweatshirts during conferences from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, and 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4. They will be set up at the upper entrance, near Door 12.

Submit to the Yearbook!

The yearbook staff invites students and parents to submit photos for the yearbook. If you’ve got great photos of school and community events or students just having fun, we’d like to see them.

Our photographers can’t be everywhere. Help us get as many photos as possible to create a terrific book everyone will want to have.

BHMS Events


The library will be hosting a gently used book exchange during fall conferences.  We are looking for donations of books that are appropriate for middle school students and are in good shape.  If you have books that are at the elementary level, we’d appreciate a few of those for younger family members that might be with older siblings at conferences.  Students can bring donated books to the library, or families can drop them off in the main office starting Monday, October 18.  Thank you for your generosity and help.
