Dear Parents and Students,

MrSmith1415It is with great excitement in welcoming our school community to the 2018-19 school year at Bunker Hill High School! I look forward to working with a dedicated faculty and staff, as well as with a great group of students that never ceases to amaze me. Lastly, I look forward to actively engaging our parents in their child’s education and school district events.

Through the talented and creative efforts of a graduate of the Class of 2018, the 2018-19 Bunker Hill High School Handbook cover offers a glimpse of our hallway and lockers, painted in “BHHS red.” The cover also coins the phrase, “Never Stop Learning, Because Life Never Stops Teaching.” This phrase summarizes the academic traditions of BHHS, while also focusing on our future…ensuring the continual achievement for all students! When our doors are opened in August, our students and staff will be entering an environment centered upon a common theme–a commitment in providing positive educational and social opportunities for ALL students on a daily basis. Through those opportunities, based upon integrity and respect, our students experience a challenging and supportive learning environment.

I encourage all students to fully dedicate themselves to their education. This requires a positive work ethic, time commitment, and accountability. I also encourage parents to be involved in their child’s education. Through a collaborative effort, we can certainly assist our students in reaching new levels of academic success. Feel free to contact me or your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns. I can be reached at 618-585-3232 or msmith@bhschools.org. Go Minutemen and Minutemaids!
