8TH GRADE DRAMA PERFORMANCES ON JANUARY 23

Someone is in enormous trouble for breaking the priceless heirloom vase in the Peterson living room. But who? Someone is lying. Well, probably everyone is pretty much lying. Each suspect's account is more outlandish than the last, from warring siblings Fred and Kelly, to their deeply weird friends Barney and Ava, to the family dog (according to the dog whisperer). But the truth? The truth is more slippery... and it may involve more Nutella than you could possibly imagine. Or not. Who knows?!

Come find out the answer as the BHMS 8th grade Drama Class presents An Absolutely True Story (As Told by a Bunch of Lying Liars)365体育现金, by Ian McWethy. Performances will be on Thursday, January 23, in the BHMS Cafetorium. Students in the A day class will perform at 6:30 p.m. Students in the B day class will perform at 8:15 p.m. All are invited to attend, and admission is free.

A NOTE FROM ATHLETIC DIRECTOR ABOUT WINTER SESSION 2 SPORTS

Hello to all!

The Middle School Winter 2 sports season is upon us. Most Winter 2 sports begin on Monday, January 27th. Please contact the coach or see the information sheet for team specific information.

Please to make sure that your student has a physical on file with the main office. You must use the MHSAA Physical Form. Other forms, or Health Risk Appraisals, from doctor’s offices will not be accepted. I have attached the physical form for your convenience. Only physicals dated 4/15/2019 or later are valid for the 2019-2020 school year. All students will need a completed physical form on file with the main office before being allowed to participate in tryouts/practices.

The participation fee is a $150 fee which you will need to pay if your student makes a team. Some teams are "no-cut" sports so the fee can be paid right away. For those sports with tryouts, you can wait to see if your student makes the team before you pay the fee.

The best resource for all up-to-date athletic information is the Middle School Athletic web page.
Please see the link below: http://www.reporter4u.com/departments/athletics/middle-school-athletics

Our sports schedules can now be found at , , and or . You can find our sports competition schedules from the links to these pages found on our Middle School Athletic web page.

*Note on sports schedules: Though some coaches give out the season schedule at the beginning of the season, I advise checking your school’s website for the most current information on schedules as they do change during the course of a season.

Please contact me, or the coaches, if you have any questions.

Yours in sports,

Avis Najor

8th GRADE STUDENTS EMBRACE THEIR INNER WRITERS
While many people were busy planning for the recent holidays or savoring the last minutes of Fall, a group of eleven committed BHMS 8th graders took on a tremendous challenge as writers instead. In November, which was National Novel Writing Month (o), writers were encouraged to attempt an entire novel within the month. As explained on the site:

National Novel Writing Month began in 1999 as a daunting but straightforward challenge: to write 50,000 words of a novel during the thirty days of November. Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with a brand-new novel. It tracks words for writers like Fitbit tracks steps for the ambulatory.  

365体育现金The eleven dedicated and talented writers met after school starting in the middle of October to plan out and write their own novels under the advisement of Mrs. Sloan. Mysteries, fantasy and realistic fiction were among the genres selected by this special crew. In total, these young novelists wrote 157,174 words of original fiction. They had a great time during this process and will continue their drafting and editing throughout the winter. 

Students who participated are Maya Upfall, Gabi Gippert, Jhanvi Gugnega, Charlotte Rockwell, Cara Ernzen, Sandra Fernandez, Juliet Zimmerman, Carson Barnes, Mia Jahnke, Jenny Thibodeau and Nicole Rapp.

Special thanks to Mrs. Finney, who shared her expertise as a professional writer and editor, and to Mr. English and Mrs. Singh who supported this effort.
