Important information

First, due large crowds, participants, and spectators for the WPIAL playoff game this Thursday, the student parking lot will be closed all day.

Students are to ride the bus to school on Thursday, May 14, since our parking lots will be full. Be aware that Whitehall Police have been included in the planning of these events and they will be monitoring the local neighborhoods to ticket illegally parked vehicles.

Secondly, this is a reminder for students who are planning to attend our Junior Prom this Friday to be sure to follow the Attendance Policy. Early dismissal requests for those students whose names are included on the ticket list for the junior prom must submit a note to our Attendance Office by Wednesday, May 13, 2015 if they desire an early dismissal. Students who are approved for an early dismissal for May 15, may plan on being dismissed after 11:05 AM. All of the guidelines and expectations were included in the document sent home with students who purchased tickets.

Finally, please be aware that all school rules apply through the end of the day on June 5. Students are expected to follow the dress code, attendance policy, and all behavior expectations until the last day of school.

Celebrating Art

Celebrating Art is a publication sponsored by the Dick Blick Art supply company. The company welcomes students from grades K-12 to enter their work to compete to have their work published. In each grade division, the top ten winners are eligible for a monetary prize.

This year, each student in Mrs. Foote’s Studio Art levels I, II, III, and IV classes selected a piece to enter in to the spring competition. Many of the chosen pieces were on display during this year’s BHS Arts Fair. We were thrilled to learn that 46 of our students were selected to have their work published!

This recognition is a true testimony to the skills and talents of our BHS Artists!

A PDF with a list of the winning students is attached!
