Thank You Patti Pokorney

Pokorney Leaves the Board After 12 Years of Service

The district would like to thank Patti Pokorney for the 12 years of service that she gave while serving on the school board. During that time she served in many leadership roles on the board, including the chairperson, and on countless committees.

This is Only a Test

Parent Notification System Testing Wednesday, October 28

BHM Schools wants to ensure that we are communicating with parents in the most effective way possible. On Wednesday, October 28, 2015, mid-morning, the district will send out a district-wide emergency test message to parents and guardians from our parent notification system. You should receive a call, email and text messages (whatever information you have on file with your child's school). Especially with the upcoming winter months, we want to be sure parents/guardians don't miss any important messages from the school or the district about cancellations or delays. Remember this is ONLY a TEST and NO action will likely be necessary.
