Award Ceremony

Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors attended an awards banquet on May 12 to be recognized for their academic achievements and successes. The night was started off with the Outstanding Junior Awards presented by the Lions Club and Masonic Lodge. Blane Barnes received the Outstanding Junior Award from the Lions club, Olivia Gettman and Matthew Knickerbocker received the Outstanding Junior Awards from the Masonic Lodge. The members of National Honor Society were then awarded for their participation and success in maintaining a high grade point average and completing at least twenty hours of community service. Each received a patch for their letterman jackets for their active participation in NHS. All underclassmen were then awarded academic letters for maintaining their high GPA for three consecutive semesters. BHS teachers each came up afterwards in separate departments, from English to Art, awarding their students for specific accomplishments and highest class average in each of each of their classes. Knowledge Bowl members were also awarded letters for the participation in the cub and their successes in the state competition just recently. The night was an absolute success for the students who were awarded for their achievements in academics.

Career Internships

Published on 04/15/2014 at 9:02 a.m. by aroach

Last Semester, some students in Jessica Robbin's Gifted and Talented group signed up for professional internships. This January twenty-first, these students met with local professionals that were deemed ideal to be their mentors. These students are now almost done with their internships in careers spanning from computer programming to wildlife park range service, giving them early steps into their chosen fields. This program is expected to return next year, with a whole new batch of interns and mentors, giving even more kids experience in the work world. In the future, good things will come of this, but what things, only time will tell.

Dodgeball Tournament

Published on 03/19/2014 at 8:41 a.m. by aroach

The dodgeball tournament held at Bayfield High School on March 17th was an absolute success! About $325 was raised for the Make a Wish foundation that the school district is participating in this year. Eight teams played in double elimination games of dodgeball. The entry fee was twenty dollars per team. The winning team was Zach Kujath, Kyle Killough, Jesse Hunt, Cameron Seivert, Chris Kane, Max Miller, Maggie Baxter, and Celeste Faumui. It gave students and teachers a chance to participate in exciting and competitive dodgeball games with one another and was all for a great cause. Mrs. Aveis donated the concession money made that night to the foundation as well. The high school is getting closer and closer to their goal with two more fundraisers this week. The dodgeball tournament was an excellent way to get the students and staff involved in a great fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation.

The auxiliary gym has completed block walls on the east and north sides.The roof will be added in short matter of time. As for the performing arts building, steel and block walls have already been set and structural walls are being placed making it look more and more like the finished product every day.
