Principal's Message

August 2018
Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I hope that each of you have found this summer relaxing and that you are eagerly anticipating the start of the school year. For members of the Class of 2022, I officially welcome you to the BHS community as you begin your high school adventure. To the Class of 2019, our seniors, this is your year! There are so many exciting events and opportunities ahead, it is sure to be memorable. I look forward to watching you and your fellow sophomore and junior class members continue the traditions and commitment to excellence at BHS.
I am excited to welcome two new assistant principals to our building, Mr Jessen Bishard and Ms Stephanie Bittner. I have previously worked with both of them and am very excited to welcome them to BHS. I cannot wait for you to meet them!
Members of the 9th grade class are invited to join us for freshman orientation on Tuesday, August 14 from 9:00 – 10:15. Students will participate in a short program and have an opportunity to learn about BHS. Parents, please drop students off and pick them up in the gravel lot near the baseball field. Students may access HAC for a digital copy of their schedule. If you do not have access to the digital scheduler, we will assist you that day in getting a copy. Please note that there may be changes to schedules between now and the start of the school year based on recent staffing changes.
We will also host Back to School Night Thursday, August 30 from 6:00-7:30 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 enclosed paperwork and payment to sign out your items. Incoming 9th graders paying with cash or check can begin picking up their chromebook package following the freshman orientation session. All other students may start picking them during back to school night. Please bring these completed forms 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. Those wishing to pay online should note that the online FCPS system may not open until later in the month to accept payment.
Remember to check our website, subscribe to our Find Out First and follow our official Twitter accounts for up to date information. As we begin the year, I am excited to see how each of you model #RoadersREACH and continue to celebrate that we are #OneSchoolNoLimits.
I look forward to welcoming each of you back on Tuesday, September 4th. The school day begins at 7:30AM!
Mr. Michael Dillman
