A Message from Our Principal

Hello Boilermakers!

We know firsthand how college changes lives, so BHS is hosting its 2nd Annual College & Career Week March 24-28. We are also looking for guest speakers for the BHS Classroom to Career Days on March 24-25. Please spread the word by sharing this link to our Classroom to Career registration form with your personal network and colleagues.

If you have ideas, announcements, quotes, or shout-outs you’d like included in the Boilermaker Bulletin, please, send them my way!
