What a wonderful week we had at BCHS!!! The students are working hard in the classroom and our extra curricular activities/teams continue to show out in their areas! This week our FFA had a team win regionals and make it the the state competition, FBLA had students win awards (some 1st place), and both our basketball teams played hard again Wayne County!!
At the board meeting Monday night we were able to recognize a large group of students from softball, the band, and the FFA!! Go Herons!!
This week Mrs. Chesser set up the thank notes for teachers to write to each other and the administrative team decide to make that full scale and have the students do the same for their favorite teacher/coach! What a site that was to see them posted all around lunchroom!!!! On Thursday I challenged to teachers to eat lunch with their students to help build relationships beyond the classroom. That was truly amazing- students and teachers alike enjoyed talking and hanging out!
What a blessing our students are, as well as our faculty and staff!! The faculty and staff were given their notes from the students and staff as well as a staff T-shirt on Thursday afternoon!!
Please remember that we have just 12 days until EOC’s start! Please make sure your children are focusing on doing their best on the test. However, don’t put so much pressure on them that they cannot focus! Ultimately, we want them to do great on the test and we want our school test scores to be wonderful- but we don’t want that to overshadow the importance of students giving their all and simply doing the best they can do! We are proud of our Herons and are confident that the hard work they’ve put in this semester has prepared them for this challenge!

We started off Monday morning with a celebration for a continued improvement in our CCRPI score with it moving nearly two points to 82.1 for the 2017 year. We were happy to have Mr. Cummings on campus as he was the Principal during the time of this score.
Our students have been working diligently in their classes and we are proud of all their hardwork. We sent home progress reports home on Friday — please be on the lookout for those.
On Wednesday we had College Spirit day and lots of our students and staff dressed to show support for their favorite college.
The basketball team opened with a scrimmage against Berrien County – the young Lady Herons lost, but had lots of positives from the game. The boys teams led by Jaylin and Pedro dominated a depleted Berrien team (football playoffs), and there were lots of positives as they put up a lot of points.
On Thursday, our faculty and staff had a big send off for our competition cheer girls as they left to compete at the state finals. I was lucky enough to be able to attend the state finals and watch them finish 14th in the state AAA competition. We are very proud of these girls and their coaches.
