Food Drive 2013

Thank you to the families that supported our annual food drive at BJHS.  All food collected goes to families in the community. Thank you to the students that participated.  Thank you to Mr. Lopinski and the student council for sorting and prepping the boxes.  Thank you to the Bedford Lions for making the deliveries.  This is just one example of why we have such a great community.

Reading Time

Reading is the foundation to everything that we work on at BJHS.  We have excellent teachers that share their love of reading with the students.  As you can see below, our students read a lot at school.
We also have the opportunity to get books at our book fair in the media center. Students can visit during lunch time, parents can visit during conferences, and you can also visit the online book fair at this link.
