Student Council presents Mid-Afternoon at the Movies on
Thursday, December 17th!
Student Council is proud to collaborate with three BHS students on their Community Action Service (CAS) project for this month's Mid-Afternoon at the Movies event! These students are raising money for an organization called Pencils of Promise whose mission it is to build schools where there are none. A contribution of $2 is being requested and may be included with money for pizza and drinks, if ordering. Together, we invite you to participate in December’s Mid-Afternoon at the Movies when we will be showing the movie “INSIDE OUT.” This event will be held in the McKelvie Cafeteria from 3:30 - 5:30, and pizza and drinks will be available for those who order ahead of time.

If your student/family would prefer to donate a toy, students are welcome to bring in a new, unwrapped toy. Toys for Tots donation bins will be located at the front of the school.

This will allow your student to practice his/her typing skills from the comforts of home without any cost to you! Click HERE for instructions on downloading and accessing this program.
If you are unable to get the Type to Learn program to work on your home computer, another alternative would be for you to Google "Free typing programs for education". There are several great options, such as Dance Mat Typing, Typing Club, Typing Web, etc.
