Let's Get Ready for BHCS Science Fair 2015!
It is now time to start preparing for our upcoming Science Fair here at BHCS. Under our Students link there is a Science Fair link where you will find information on the steps required to complete the project as well as a copy of the rubric which the teachers will use to score each project for grading purposes.
Please take note of the due dates as they are a little different this year. All 5th and 6th grade projects will be due on Monday, February 16, 2015. The 3rd and 4th grade projects will be due on Monday, February 23, 2015. All projects are due on their specified day so that they may be judged.
If you have any questions in regards to the project, please feel free to contact Angie Phillips at 336.599.2823 extension 266.
We have sold all of the Science fair boards from the front office. Please check retail/office supply stores in your area.
Spirit Week is a fun-filled week that allows students and staff to show their school spirit. This year we will have spirit week March 2 - 6. Each day will have a different theme.

Wednesday – Hester Day (Wear your red, white and black - the colors of his team!)
Thursday – School Colors Day (Wear your black and gold!)
Friday - BHCS School Shirt Day (Wear any BHCS shirt!)
We will also hold our annual quarter drive that week as well. Students are encouraged to bring in loose change or dollars each day. We will count the money for each class and announce the top three classes at the end of the day. The class who raises the most money for the week will earn a gift certificate for their teacher to spend for the class.
The winning class will be announced at the annual Staff-Student Basketball game. The game will be held on Thursday, March 5 at 7:00pm in the gym. Admission will be $2.00. We will have a half-and –half raffle and the winner will be announced at half-time. No concessions will be sold at the game. Come on out and cheer the players on during the game!!
