BHMS collects Box Tops for Education all year around There is a collection box in the main office where the clipped Box Tops can be dropped off. REMEMBER . . . each Box Top is worth ten cents to BHMS, but worth nothing if you toss it in your waste basket. The math is simply amazing. If 750 students each brought in only 10 Box Tops a month, for the nine months of the school year, BHMS would earn $6,750 annually to use toward programs or purchases not covered under the budget. Thanks for supporting BHMS in small ways that can have big results. For a list of products that contain Box Tops, click HERE.

Athletes must have a physical on file (bring physical to the first practice).
Athletes interested in participating please Register Here.

A GIGANTIC round of applause for FTC Robotics Team #7047, the Mechanical Monkeys, who placed an incredible 7th in their division and 19th in the WORLD in the First Championship competition held recently in Detroit. The team is made up of BHMS students Heather Chen, Michael Chen, Om Joshi, Neel Namburar, Rohan Namburar, Chloe Patterson and Nick Ryan.
We continue to receive phone calls from concerned parents about several car pool situations that are putting students at risk, causing a great deal of frustration, and creating congestion in the car pool lane. The BHMS administration, PTO, and volunteer parents are currently working on a plan to eliminate these situations. In the meantime, if your car pool practices contribute to any of these major concerns (there may be others) please discontinue those practices immediately and follow the correct procedure indicated.
Concern #1: Cars bypassing those waiting in the right (inner) car pool lane, and dropping off or picking up students in the left (outer) lane.
Correct Procedure: Drop off and pick up in the right lane ONLY. Left lane should be a constantly moving lane used only for exiting the carpool area.
Concern #2: Cars backing up before pulling out of the right lane.
Correct Procedure: A student was nearly hit recently when a car backed up before pulling out of the right lane. Please wait the extra minute for the car in front of you to pull out, so that you do not need to back up to exit the lane.
Concern #3: Being in the right (inner) car pool lane, but ONLY dropping off or picking up directly in front of the building.
Correct Procedure: Drop off and pick up can be done in the right lane as far forward as the flagpole at the west end of the car pool circle, and as far back as the start of the sidewalk that extends from the building toward the road. Please do not leave space in front of you just to drop your student off directly in front of the building. This will keep the car pool lane moving, and minimize back-up on Quarton Road.
Concern #4: Cars entering the carpool lane prior to 7:55 a.m. (when the building opens), but sitting with students in the car until 7:55 a.m.
Correct Procedure: If you choose to have your student stay in the car until 7:55 a.m., please do not wait in the carpool lane. Instead, you are welcome to park in the lot near the tennis courts until your student is ready to exit from the car.
Please remember that BHMS IS A NUT-RESTRICTED BUILDING, 24-HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. There are students in the building who are highly allergic to peanuts and all kinds of tree nuts, and their well-being is of concern.
Students should not bring lunch or snacks containing nuts or nut products. Additionally, please be sure that anything given to the office staff, to teachers, for classrooms, bake sales, end-of-sports or club parties or any other occasion are free of all nuts and nut products. Thank you so much for your consideration.
In order to report absences, late arrivals, request early dismissal or a bus pass, or to get a school-related message to your child on a timely basis, you must call the attendance line directly at 248-341-6010. Calling 248-341-6010 will get you to a recorded line. Messages on that line are checked on a regular basis throughout the school day. Leaving a message on any other line may result in the message not being retrieved or passed on to your student on a timely basis. Please program the 248-341-6010 attendance line phone number on to your phone and use only that line for the above purposes. Thank you.
