We have a lot of superstars at BJHS and I would like to recognize a few of them.
Thank you to all of the parents and teachers that make PTA successful. Mrs. McNutt does a great job with the PTA organization and I appreciate her leadership.  Thank you to our Partners in Education, Mike's Southwest Grill for sponsoring events for our staff and students with a shout out to Mrs. McHugh for her hard work at the JHS and the restaurant.  Thank you to Mrs. Reitz and Mrs. McPhillips for running our quiz bowl program, the kids love it and you guys do a great job representing the community.  Thank you to our great secretaries Ms. Newman and Mrs. Brieschke for their work making our school run and they are well deserving of being recognized for our Lifetime Membership Award.  Thank you to everyone who works hard on our outstanding program, PTA Craft Show, especially Mrs. Kohler for her organization and leadership. Congratulations to our outstanding educator, Mrs. Verdun, for her outstanding work in the classroom. Thank you Jenn Scally for all of the work on the certificates.  Thank you Silver Spoon and Mrs. Adamski for the wonderful meal and thank you to DaCapos for the great cupcakes.

PTA Founders' Day Awards Dinner 3/20
Last night we had our annually BPS Art Show and Awards Ceremony at the Bedford Library.  This was a great event and thank you Mrs. Sansom for all of your hard work.  Below I posted just a few pieces of artwork from our fine students.

Our NJHS President, Hunter Gandee, is a superstar and a great brother!  Click here to read this outstanding article on what he has been doing to help people with cerebral palsy, including his little brother.  Hunter is a great young man and leader and I am looking forward to seeing many great things from him in the future. 

Congratulations to Jacob Goa and Noah Ansara for being BJHS top two writers for America and Me essay contest sponsored by Farm Bureau Insurance. Jacob is a finalist and will compete at the state level.

I could go on and on about the wonderful accomplishments of our students. BJHS is a great place to be because of the work that our parents, staff, and students accomplish.
