for Monday, December 9th



If you are a new driver or have a new vehicle, please remember to let the office know the make/model of the vehicle, the year and color. 

Students, please look on Skyward at your second semester schedule.  Now is the time to make sure that there are no errors.  If you see something that doesn't look right, please contact Mrs. Whitehouse or Mrs. Coy. 


If any students are considering adding Art Appreciation to their schedule, 3rd hour next semester, they must see Mrs. Whitehouse this week because of Parkland paperwork.  

The Student Council will be celebrating the Christmas season with a dress up contest this week!

Remaining activities are:

TOMORROW: Ugly Sweater Day

Wednesday: Christmas socks and/or ties

Thursday: Santa/Christmas Hat Day

Friday: Christmas Characters Day 


Winners from each day’s contest will win a “Candy Gram” prize, chosen each day at lunch by secret voters.  Also, Student Council will award Christmas cookies, during lunch on Tuesday, December 18, to the class who participates the most for the entire week.  BRHS employees are part of the challenge which means they can win the basket of cookies, if they have the highest percentage of participation for the week. 


Student Council students are selling Candy Grams during the lunch next week.  Candy Grams can also be purchased in my room, 208.  Candy Grams cost $2.00.  Proceeds will be donated to the USO: Operation Phone Home project, as part of our Veterans Appreciation mission. Candy Grams will be delivered to recipients on Monday, December 16th
