Great article in the Commercial-News detailing the Blue Devils big regional victory! Regional Championship will be played Saturday at 11am at and against Unity.
BHRA history students have been learning about WWI and Vietnam. Our desire is to take what we’ve learned about the sacrifice of our veterans in this country and give back. Here is a way the community can help us with this goal. The local VA is in need of some things to help brighten days and encourage the Vets that use the VA. Games are needed and welcome. These can be new or gently used. A complete list will be included. Any questions, please email Mrs. Tidwell at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Below are pieces of propaganda the students created after learning how propaganda was used in wars to inspire people to help. )
