End of 23-24 School Year

It was an amazing year at BCHS with Mr. Christensen as our principal. We celebrated the graduation of 34 students with mixed emotions of pride and sadness. Congratulations to our resilient graduates! The BCHS staff will miss you, but we are also looking forward to our 3rd year at the school. We know it will be challenging, but we are ready for it. For those on the waiting list, our office will contact you soon to inform you of your child's placement at BCHS. The first day of the 2024-2025 school year is on August 13th and we are excited to welcome everyone back and create more wonderful memories together.

Fue un año increíble en BCHS con el Sr. Christensen como nuestro director. Celebramos la graduación de 34 estudiantes con emociones encontradas de orgullo y tristeza. ¡Felicidades a nuestros graduados resilientes! El personal de BCHS los extrañará, pero también esperamos con ansias nuestro tercer año en la escuela. Sabemos que será desafiante, pero estamos listos para ello. Para aquellos en la lista de espera, nuestra oficina se pondrá en contacto pronto para informarles sobre la ubicación de su hijo en BCHS. El primer día del año escolar 2024-2025 es el 13 de Agosto y estamos emocionados de dar la bienvenida a todos y crear más maravillosos recuerdos juntos.


AUGUST 1- 2ND 2024

The in-person registration will take place on August 1st and 2nd. If your child is a returning student from BCHS, you can complete the registration online, but if you prefer to come in person, that is also fine, as we are happy to assist you. More information about the schedule will be posted as the date approaches. It is important to keep in mind that if your student is new to BCHS, you will need to bring a birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of address.

El registro en persona se llevará a cabo el 1 y 2 de Agosto. Si su hijo es un estudiante que regresa de BCHS, puede completar el registro en línea, pero si prefiere venir en persona, eso también está bien, ya que estamos felices de ayudarlo. Más información sobre el horario se publicará a medida que se acerque la fecha. Es importante tener en cuenta que si su estudiante es nuevo en BCHS, deberá traer un certificado de nacimiento, registros de vacunación y comprobante de domicilio.

Dear BCHS families,

We are excited to inform you that our school will be making an expansion to accommodate the growing needs of our students. In order to create more space and additional classrooms, we have decided to add a modular to our building. This will enable us to provide improved facilities and enhanced learning experiences for our students. However, we would like to notify you that during the construction phase, the front part of our parking lot will be inaccessible for vehicles. We kindly request your patience and understanding during this time. We kindly ask you to respect the fence line and only park on the outside of it. We anticipate that this expansion will be completed as soon as possible. Thank you for your continuous support and understanding.
