Pictured here is one of our dedicated welcoming crews at BHHS. The "north side" crew started with Mr. Marshall and Mr. Slover and has now grown to a group of students who welcome morning students with a smile. All of our BHHS faculty and staff have a mission of greeting our students and building positive relationships. It is contagious!

Mrs. Eschbach's English classes participated in a fun and engaging activity recently. Students read a page from the text, created a short poem, and created a drawing around their poem related to the theme of the reading. Students then completed a gallery walk where they were able to vote on their favorite poem/drawing. Winners were honored by asking why they made the choices they did in their poem and artwork.

As we approach the observance of Veterans Day, we are often reminded of former BHHS graduates who have or are currently serving our country. Seen here is Robert Tate-Scott (Class of 2020), Machinist Mate-Nuclear, Petty Officer 3rd Class, currently stationed in Pearl Harbor and serving on the USS Missouri Virginia-class attack submarine. Robert is spending some liberty time honoring those that served before him and gave the ultimate sacrifice while visiting with his family at the Shrine Room at the USS Arizona Memorial. Thank you for your service!

Kiersten Carlson, Reporter for the BHHS FFA, gave a summary of events during the FFA convention. "This past week, the Bunker Hill FFA traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana to participate in the National FFA Convention. Bunker Hill was represented by 5 FFA members, none of which had ever attended due to the covid outbreak. Early Wednesday morning, we made our way to Indy to register and attend the opening session at Lucas Oil Stadium. We were able to listen to Tamika Catchings (nationally renowned athlete) give a speech about being bold and seizing opportunities in life. We will be able to bring some of these lessons back to our school to be better leaders. On Thursday we headed over to the Expo where we talked to many different agriculturally-based colleges and businesses. Their representatives talked about career opportunities and how we may further our education after high school. We are very thankful for this opportunity and are looking forward to attending again next year."

The Agriculture and Auto Tech students collaborated to restore a 1948 ford tractor back to working condition. This tractor had not been operated in 23 years. Students installed new brakes, starter, carburetor, filters and fluids. They also overhauled the electronics system, set the engine timing, replaced the tires and painted it. The tractor now runs and looks great!
