Dec 19 - 22 Important Announcements


Though BHS wrestling lost to Shakopee 13-66, Congratulations to:

  • Jamison Joubert - Fall
  • Michel Douhe - 12-4 MD
  • Mambu Sonie - 9-6 over the 2022 MN State Runner-up!

Attendance is a key factor in student success! Parents are strongly encouraged to schedule appointments outside of the school day. If your student must miss school, please follow the following procedures in accordance with our attendance policy to ensure the absence is excused: 

  • All Day Absence – Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707-2104) as soon as possible in the morning to report the absence. If this is not possible, parents may send a signed note to school when the student returns.  
  • Arriving Late to School – Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707- 2104) as soon as possible in the morning AND the student must complete the sign-in form in the Main Office when they arrive to school. If a call is not possible, the student can bring a signed note to the office when they arrive to school AND complete the sign in form. If the student does not sign in upon arrival to school, they will not be excused.  
  • Leaving Early from School (for an appointment, etc.) - Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707-2104) before 10:00 am AND the student must pick up their departure pass before leaving school. With the pass in hand, they are able to walk out of the building at the appropriate time eliminating the need for parents to come into the building. If the student is returning to school after the appointment, they should bring their departure pass back into the Office and get signed back in to school. 

PLEASE NOTE: If students are leaving school due to illness, they need to check out through the health office in order to be excused. A parent/guardian needs to be contacted by a nurse, and a pass will be issued for students when leaving school. We cannot go back and excuse students who do not check out before leaving. If they do not check out, they will not be excused.

Are you a Muslim who is looking for a safe community? Are you just interested in learning more about Islam?

There will be a Muslim Student Association Meeting after school on Tuesday, Dec. 20th in room E210.  This is for any new or returning member! 

This group will help foster discussions and plan events to bring unity within and across BHS communities. 

The BHS Film Club has officially started! If you have an interest in film production and want to hang out with like minded people, then come to Room C266 every Monday after school. Meetings will be done in time for students to catch the activity bus if transportation is an issue.

Attention all parents of Juniors

Genesys Works is now taking paid INTERNSHIP applications.

  • Student applicants MUST be on track to graduate.
  • Able to work 20 hours a week during senior year. Students typically work M-F 1-5 PM
  • Committed to 8 weeks of training June through August.

Genesys Works is a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for students to work in meaningful, paid internships at top Twin Cities corporations. They also provide free college, scholarship, and financial aid assistance during their senior year of high school.

What are the benefits of participating?

  • At Genesys Works your child can pursue opportunities and invest in their future.
  • It’s an opportunity to gain real-world skills like public speaking, Microsoft Office, business technology, teamwork, and more – and they’ll earn college credit!
  • It’s a paid corporate internship where students will work for 12 months at one of the top companies in the Twin Cities like 3M, Medtronic, Target, or Ameriprise Financial earning $16,000 their senior year!
  • It’s a plan for their future because they work 1:1 with students to create and implement their plan for what to do after they graduate high school
  • It’s access to a long-lasting network because after they graduate high school, students will still have opportunities to enter internships, attend workshops, and build a network with Twin Cities professionals.

Who are they looking for?

They are seeking students who are interested in having a successful professional career and want to be exposed to a business environment before starting college. While their internships are technology and business focused, they do not require any prior knowledge of technology or business to be a part of the program, Genesys Works will teach participants everything they need to know.
