Dear Parents & Students,


The BHS Student Council sponsored a School Safety Forum yesterday, April 5th from 9:00-10:00 in the auditorium. During this forum, State level lawmakers, local Law Enforcement officials and ISD 31 Staff were on panel & answered submitted student questions posed to them by a moderator.  About 170 students and staff attended the forum.  Hats off to Mr. Cervenka and our student council for A JOB WELL DONE!!!
