The BHS Download Gallery for Graduation Photos is up and ready for everyone to access. The gallery will prompt you with some helpful pop-up windows to help you access the images, downloads, and how to order prints. There is a ceremony folder in each gallery with photos of the actual ceremony and leading up to the ceremony (kids backstage, band and orchestra, etc). The graduates are organized in groups one through three (groups 1-2 being the honor students and group 3 non-honors).
If you click on an individual photo you'll see a download button at the top. Or you can choose to download the entire gallery. If you create a favorite list, the gallery will store your selected images for quicker access for downloads. Parents can download the digital images at no charge and if they wish to purchase prints, they can either download them and take them somewhere locally or online, or order prints from the gallery.
Thank you BHS and congratulations to this year's graduates!

Immunization (11th & 12th Graders)
The North Dakota Department of Health School Immunization requires a second dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) for students entering eleventh or twelfth grade. This vaccine can be given any time after their 16th birthday. Students who are not up to date by October 1, will be excluded from school and will count as an unexcused absence. Please make sure to take care of this over the summer!
Clinics are open & scheduling well-child visits & vaccination visits with COVID safety protocols in place.
You can either fax, email or drop off a complete Certificate of Immunizations at BHS.

BHS has a Little Free Library in front of our building on 7th Street! The main purpose is to encourage BHS students to read, but because a LFL is a “take a book, leave a book” philosophy, you might find literature from all genres and levels. Feel free to grab a good read for yourself and exchange it with one you think students might find interesting.
And the beautiful box was decorated by our very own, Paul Noot (BHS Art teacher).
