Happy Friday BHMS families!

Open House Follow Up

We had a tremendous turnout Wednesday for our Open House and Orientation. With more than 90% of our families attending, and fluctuations in enrollment, there were some significant adjustments to schedules in order to balance classes. As a result, we are asking that all families double check schedules in the parent portal before school on Tuesday. If you are unable to print an updated schedule for your scholar, please send them to the library/media center on Tuesday as soon as they arrive. Please note that we do not make changes to core classes, and all elective change requests need to be submitted to the counselors with parent signature by Friday Aug 27.

Way of the Warrior Update

As a new year is set to begin on Tuesday, we want to share some exciting news. We will be instituting a House System this year that includes School Wide competition and expectations. New students will get to draw into 1 of 4 houses, where we will work to strengthen areas that are needed in today’s society.  We are really excited about these changes and want to share them with you.These include building-wide Classroom Universal Practices and Family Values. Below are our first 5 Family Values we will be learning.

BHMS Family Values

Value 1: Yes Ma’m, No Sir

When responding to any adult, you should answer by saying “Yes ma’am” or “No sir”.  

Just nodding your head or saying other forms of yes or no is not acceptable.

Value 2:  Make Eye Contact

Make eye contact.  When someone is speaking, keep your eyes on him or her at all times.  If someone makes a comment, turn and face that person.

Value 3:  When a Substitute Teacher is Present, All Class Rules Still Apply

While you are with a substitute teacher, you will obey the same rules that you follow when the regular teacher is with you.  (This is hard, but it is important.)

Value 4:  Excuse Me

If someone bumps into you, even if it was not your fault, say “excuse me.”

Value 5:  If Anyone is Bullying You, Let a Teacher Know, and Do Not Bully Others

If any child in this school is bothering you, let a teacher know.  We are your teachers and we are here to look after you and protect you.  We will not let anyone in this school bully you or make you feel uncomfortable.  We ask that you not take matters into your own hands.  Do not bully others.
