  • BHSN Dance Marathon

    North Dance Marathon is excited to partner with a local organization, Colton's Kindness, this holiday season. Colton's story is so touching, and you can find more information on Colton's story on social media! Colton's mom and dad, Katy and Jordan, along with his younger siblings, run a toy drive each year for kiddos who will be staying at Riley Children's Hospital over the holiday season. North Dance Marathon has been partnering with Colton's Kindness for the last three years, and we are excited to collect items to support this annual toy drive again this year. All items purchased from our wish list will be given to Colton's family, and they will deliver the toys to Riley Children's Hospital before the holiday season! The last day to order items is December 10th. Thank you so much for helping us make this annual toy drive a success! Your support and willingness to help is so appreciated!

    After a few year absence, our journalism students are bringing back the student news website. Formerly known as Fused, we are rebranding to The North Star after BHSN's original school newspaper. The site can be found at: https://bhsnnorthstarnews.com/

    The Journalism class, as well as other interested students, will be providing student produced content for a student audience. Not only will there be articles and photos, the students are currently working on some video productions, a podcast, and other multimedia content. Junior Raegan Deckard is serving as the Editor-in-Chief of The North Star news site.

    Students interested in producing content that are not in any of the Student Media classes should talk with Mr. Cockrum in Room 709 to get involved.

  • School Pictures

    School Photos Are Out

    You can see your student's school photo at https://kirkwoodphotolab.zenfolio.com/f452461444. You will need your student's Alpha Key (available in Skyward under Portfolio) in order to access the photos. A retake day will be scheduled soon for those that want to retake their photo or those that missed the school photo days.

    Photos taken on the retake day are now available to view and order at: https://kirkwoodphotolab.zenfolio.com/f162199897
     
    To access BHSN Yearbook 2022-23 pictures: The passcode is your student's Alpha Key. To find your Alpha Key, go to your family Skyward account, click 'Portfolio', then run report called 'Alpha Key'. *A common solution if the Alpha Key doesn't work is if there is only one zero at the end of the code, try adding two more zeros. If that doesn't work, contact Kirkwood Photo.
