BHMS Events

Gently Used Books Wanted

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 fairly decent 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.

October 14 was retake day at BHMS. If your student's picture was taken, you can still order online on
