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.

Beginning on January 9, 2017, students in grades 6, 7 and 8 will be participating in an in-house skating program during Physical Education classes. Inline skates will be delivered to the school by a company called Skatetime School Programs. Due to insurance purposes, we will be exclusively using Skatetime's roller blades. This skating unit has been implemented because of its emphasis as a "Lifetime Activity." Skating provides a variety of benefits, which include balance, coordination, motor skills, and a top rated cardio-respiratory workout. Students will also learn basic skating skills such as starting, stopping, forward skating, cornering, and a number of safety tips for being a smart skater.
The fee for this unit will be $10 per student for inline skate rental, payable in cash (exact change only please) or by check made payable to BHMS. Payments should be given to Mr. DiVito or Mrs. Wenson during gym periods any time before Friday, December 23. The fee includes delivery and pick up of the equipment as well as use of the skates for five days of skating during P.E. class. Students will also be required to wear wrist guards and a helmet, which will also be provided. However, students have the option of bringing their own helmets and wrist guards. The helmets and skates will be sanitized daily. Knee pads will also be provided for those who choose to wear them. Please
