BJH was a sea of pink on Feb. 22 with nearly all students sporting their pink t-shirts in a show against bullying. Recess time students were treated to free milk and pink cookies in the cafeteria and there was a special student performance by Tyler Hogan who sang and played us some tunes appropriate to the day. Fantastic job, Tyler! We hope the school community will continue to embrace the open-minded spirit of Pink Day throughout the year.
Here are some photos from around the building today:

Education Week has always been about celebrating education and the importance of learning. The theme for 2017 is “Seeds of Learning: Semer les Graines”.
Education Week can be an enriching experience for students, teachers and parents. All teachers are encouraged to continue to observe Education Week with their students. All students have much to contribute and would grow and learn from involvement in Education Week activities.
