BHMS will participate in the "Great Kindness Challenge" (GKC) the week of January 23. As of January 17, there were 9,184,216 students in over 12,000 schools across the nation signed up to participate in this year's challenge. The GKC coordinators are working to increase that number to 10 million students. The "Great Kindness Challenge" is one school week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible, choosing from a 50 item checklist. A "Tool Kit" of activities has been shared with teachers, and includes many activities that can easily be incorporated into a classroom lesson. Good Morning America will showcase the GKC each day of the challenge. Schools are encouraged to send photos and videos of the kind of activities in which they are participating. For more information about the GKC, go to the organization's website.
Please review this BHMS Winter Session 2 Sports Schedule, which has been put together by Middle School Athletic Director Avis Najor. It includes meeting dates, practice start dates and schedules, and coach contact information. Questions about a particular sport should be directed to the respective coach(es) rather than the school office. Also, remember that all students who participate in a BHMS sport must have BOTH of the following:
- A current athletic physical (meaning one that took place on or after April 15, 2016) on file in the BHMS office. The physical must be completed on the District's Athletic Physical Form ONLY. Please print that form and take it with you to the doctor, as this is the only form that will be accepted.
- A Pay to Participate fee for sports submitted to the District Athletic office. NOTE: Only one Pay to Participate fee is required each year. If you've already submitted the fee for your student for a sport this school year, you do not need to submit another. TO ENSURE THAT YOUR PAYMENT GETS CREDITED, FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAYMENT INDICATED ON THE FORM. DO NOT SUBMIT THIS FEE TO A COACH.
If you are not sure if your student has a current physical on file or whether you've submitted a Pay to Participate fee, please contact Mrs. Foronato in the BHMS office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 248-341-6002. Again, no student will be allowed to participate without both of the above items.
Unsupervised students in the building before and after school hours are a safety concern. Students may enter the building at 7:55 a.m., and should leave the building by 3:15 p.m. Students who remain in the building unsupervised after 3:15 will be taken to Kidz Zone, and parents will be responsible for paying a $15 drop-in charge per incident. If your daily schedule requires you to drop your student off or pick them up before/after these times, please register for Kidz Zone.

Did you know that BHMS receives ten cents for every Boxtop for Education that you put in the collection box in the main office? In fact, if every student in the building turned in only five box tops per month, it would amount to $3,400 dollars per school year when redeemed. The proceeds from Box Tops are used to purchase items not covered under the general budget. Saving them costs nothing, but makes a big difference here difference here at BHMS.
