Principal's Message

August, 2017

Dear Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I hope that each of you have found this extended summer to be relaxing and that you are eagerly anticipating the start of the school year. For members of the Class of 2021, you are beginning your journey and I officially welcome you to the BHS community. To the Class of 2018, our Seniors, this is your year with so many exciting things ahead. I look forward to watching you and your fellow sophomore and junior class members continue the traditions and commitment to excellence at BHS.

Members of the 9th grade class are invited to join us for freshman orientation on Tuesday, August 15 from 9:00 – 10:15. You will participate in a short program and have an opportunity to learn about BHS. Please bring a copy of your schedule so that you can locate your classes. If you do not have access to the digital scheduler, we will assist you that day in getting a copy.

We will also host Back to School Night Wednesday, August 30 from 6:30-8:00 pm. All of you are invited to join us.

This year FCPS will continue the 1:1 chromebook program. Important information is on the BHS website related to this initiative. You must submit the completed paperwork and payment method or receipt in order to sign out your items. Incoming 9th graders can begin picking up their chromebook package following the freshman orientation session. All others may do so on August 23 (9:00-11:30AM)or during back to school night. Please bring these with you when you come to either of these opening events. If you are unable to attend one of these events you may take care of this during the first week of school. Please review the information on the website for specifics and contact us with any questions.

Please take note of some upcoming dates that you should be aware of:

August 7th: Meet the Coaches Night, 7:00pm in the auditorium
August 9th: Fall athletics begin
September 27th: College & Career readiness program, 7:00 pm
October 14th: Homecoming Dance, 7:00-10:00 pm
October 18th: How to Pay for College program, 7:00 pm

As the year progresses, I am excited to see how we continue to build on the many great things each one of you can and will do at BHS. You can exemplify that #RoadersREACH and celebrate that we are One School, No Limits!

I look forward to welcoming each of you back on Tuesday, September 5th. The school day begins at 7:30AM!


Mr. Michael Dillman
