What can 4 hours, 5 families, 6 mum plants and 37 yard bags do? The pictures below are worth 1,000 words in answering that question. The Martel, Ullem, Schenke, Vaupel and Eaton families took the term "Labor" in Labor Day Weekend very seriously, and donated their time and energy to making BHMS look so welcoming for the start of the new school year. Heidi Janczyk also put in some solo time weeding in advance of the weekend. Everyone at BHMS is so thankful not only for the hard work of these families, but also for the pride it showed in the school. In fact, they are the inspiration for a new Beautification Club that will be part of the club offerings to be announced later this month.Watch for information about sign-ups in a future Lancer Update, and encourage your student join the Beautification Club.
Thank you again to these wonderfully committed families. They exemplify Lancer pride.
BHMS collects Box Tops for Education all year around, but there are only two redemption dates during the school year. The next one is coming up soon. Please drop of any Box Tops that you've been collecting into the collection box in the main office. If each student brought in only 10 box tops a month during 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.
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.
