On behalf of Mrs. Kucinski and her Be the Change Club members, thank you to all who supported the BHMS club's endeavor to sponsor 125 Oakland County children through the Bloomfield Optimist Club's Holiday Wish Program. Because of your generosity, the wishes of all 125 children were met. Additionally, BHMS collected donations of $1,100 to give to the Bloomfield Optimist Club to support other children. As you can see from the picture, the donated gifts wrapped around the the entire gateway space. Thank you again for being a supportive and giving community!

The best resource for all up-to-date athletic information is the Middle School Athletic web page. The sports game schedules can now be found at www.bhmsathletics.org.Though some coaches give out the season schedule at the beginning of the season, always check your school’s website for the most current information on schedules as they do change during the course of a season. Please contact the coaches directly if you have any questions. 2019 Winter Session 1 Coaches Contact & Team Information. Athletic Director is Avis Najor.
The BHMS Be the Change Club members will be boxing up everything in the lost and found areas on various dates throughout the school year. All items will be donated to charity. Please encourage your student to check for their missing items in the main lost and found area, as well as in the girls and boys locker rooms.
Would you like to earn “free money”? Well, BHMS would! That is why the Be the Change Club is collecting BoxTop$ for the school this year. Please send them in with your child to drop off in the plastic BoxTop$ bin in the front office. Technology savvy? Now, there is a BoxTop$ app you can download either at the App Store or on Google Play. Some companies have moved from traditional box tops to a blue “no more clipping” box top. If you see this label, you can use the new BoxTop$ app to scan your receipt within 14 days of purchase and it will automatically add cash to BHMS! (no more clipping!!) Thank you for helping BHMS.
LAST YEAR, YEARBOOKS SOLD OUT! Students wishing to purchase a BHMS yearbook should order online directly with Josten's before the February 1 order cut-off. Yearbooks are $35.00. They contain 56 full-color pages, and covers can be customized for an additional cost. Although the school does get a few extra yearbooks, last year every single extra yearbook was sold, and many students who didn't pre-order one missed out entirely. Please, don't rely on extras being available at the end of the school year, order online now.
