Students at BFHS are working hard to navigate the quick approach to the completion of the 2016-2017 school year. We are just beginning our state testing schedule, and we are looking forward to seeing the success our students show on those tests. Nearly all of our 11th grade students completed the SAT in the last couple of weeks, and those that have not will be looking to take the make-up SAT this week or on the next National SAT day in May.
Our spring sports season is going well, and would be much nicer for a lot of us if the weather would hold some more sunshine. Regardless of the wet weather, Track, Baseball, and Softball are in the running or currently holding the top spot in the IML. Golf is struggling to get competition and practice to take place on a course that does not have standing water on it. However, I am still seeing students ready to golf, and they are excited about the opportunity to see some sunshine on the course. Districts for spring sports will take place in the first couple weeks of May, and I encourage you come support our Student Athletes.
BFHS Awards Night for Seniors will be on June 1st, with Graduation on June 3rd, and we are excited to recognize our students through scholarship and achievement. On a student recognition type note, Grace Coughlin and Kevin Gray have been selected by our staff to represent BFHS at NISTAR, North Idaho Student Teacher Achievement Recognition, on May 8th in Coeur d’Alene. It is an honor as a student to be recognized, and it is an honor to be recognized by our students as have Tess Nix and Joe Stockdale.
The Distinguished Young Women Program will be taking place at BFHS on Saturday, April 25, at 6:30 pm. Get your tickets now if you there are any left. Our students taking part in this program have put in a lot of time and hard work to get to the culminating event on Saturday, and I know they appreciate the communities support.
On May 4, BFHS students will participate in a program that highlights the dangers of distracted or impaired driving with a mock accident. This program has been planned in a joint effort with police, fire, ambulance, hospital, school staff, and volunteers to showcase the dangers of impaired driving and encourage students to make safe decisions as we enter a time of the school year filled with celebrations like Prom, Graduation, and Senior Trip. Our participation in this program is in effort to make sure that we have not missed an opportunity to influence our students and staff to make decisions with forethought that can ultimately save lives. If you have a student at BFHS that you do not want to participate in this program, please, have your student bring home an opt-out permission slip.
I encourage you to support our students through participation and support of any program we sponsor whether it be by attending a golf match, our Film Clubs student film competition at Becker Auditorium at 7pm on Friday, May 12th, or graduation on June 3rd . Go Badgers!
