Principal's Message

August 2021
Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
For members of the Class of 2025, our freshmen, I officially welcome you to the BHS community as you begin your high school adventure. To our seniors, Class of 2022, you have made it to your final year! This is an exciting time for everyone. Staff are prepared and ready to welcome you to Brunswick. This will be an even more exciting start as nearly half of you have never entered the building as a student.
This school year will require great flexibility, understanding, and creativity to see that it is exciting and memorable. It will be a year to reintroduce our traditions, our community, and our enthusiasm for Roader Nation. Students are encouraged to show their Roader Pride in wearing spirit wear, school colors, or just bringing a ready to go approach as you enter our doors on August 18.
There are a number of opportunities for you to join us and learn about the school, meet staff, and participate in our extracurricular events. Be sure to review the enclosed documents for a preview of just some of the activities. The first opportunity on the list is an orientation session for all students new to or entering our school for the first time. On August 9, 2021, there are two sessions for students (Last Names A-L 10AM; Last Names M-Z 11:15AM). Parents may drop students off and return for pickup at the conclusion of the session.
Communication will be instrumental in keeping you aware of changing dates, activities, events, and much more. We use numerous digital platforms to provide you with daily updates. These include morning announcements, messages on Twitter, FCPS Find Out First, and other platforms. Please remember to check our website, read the Find Out First emails and follow our Twitter accounts for up to date information. Many of our staff and clubs utilize Twitter as a form of instant communication. If you do not have an account or prefer not to create one, you can view my tweets directly from the left panel of our school webpage. You may also choose to follow me @MichaelDillman, along with Mrs. Bittner @SBittner07, and @FCPSRailroaders.
I am very excited to welcome you all back to the building and to see you thrive! Be sure to check the FCPS website at FCPS.org for bus routes and other updates. Remember to set your alarms early on Wednesday, August 18. First block starts at 7:30 AM.
Please reach out if you have any questions.
Sincerely,
Mr. Michael W. Dillman
Principal
