It’s that exciting time of the year again, picking classes!

  Numerous new semesterised classes have finally been created for students. According to Mrs. Clark, students are now able to take a class they’ve always wanted to take, but couldn’t because of graduation requirements. 

BHS has created a new schedule that allows students to take seven classes. This long awaited process will now be a permanent change to our school and an impressive addition for new students.

Freshman Gracie Davis had mixed feelings about new classes and an additional class.

“ It’s kind of confusing and I’m not really sure what’s going on”, said Davis. 

She was positive about the situation, though, by saying, 

“ I now have the opportunity to take classes I’ve always wanted to take”.  

Students will be able to plan their classes the week after February vacation. 

If you have any questions about new classes, speak to your guidance counselor, and they will be happy to give you more information to help you make the right decision.
