Hello BHMS Parents, Guardians and Students,

We are excited to announce that the choir “concert season” has arrived with the BHMS choir groups performing this Tuesday, December 17.   The students have been working very hard rehearsing the music selection with the choir teacher, Ms. Cox’s directing. There are 270 students that will be participating in the choir concerts.  We are all looking forward with great anticipation to the choir performances on Tuesday. 

The 6th grade & 7th grade choir concerts will start at 5:30 p.m.  The 8th grade choir concert will begin at 7:00 pm.

On behalf of the Black Hawk staff, we would like to express our appreciation for attending and supporting the Learning Fair. The students did a fantastic job! The Trimester 1 grades are available today, Friday, December 13, in Campus Parent.  

Go Panthers!

Students have been busy building cars, planes, rockets and more, as well as studying and gathering information about fossils, birds, anatomy, food science, diseases, genetics, and many more topics. Our teams will also compete in a regional competition on Saturday, February 8, and a state competition on Saturday, April 4. Special thanks to our high school student volunteers who have been helping our two teams get started and get prepared for our competitions!
