Spirit week to the students is easily, undoubtedly, the most memorable, and most cherished week students have throughout each school year. Spirit week is where students get to express who they really are and best of all how much spirit they show. Spirit week is unlike any other school event. Not only does nearly every single student participate in spirit week, nearly every student goes above and beyond anybody's expectations. Spirit week is an opportunity for all students to go all out and try to be the most spirited person in the school.
Here is a list of the Spirit Days.
Show your BHS Spirit all week!
Monday: Decade Day
Tuesday: Country Western Day
Wednesday: Multiplicity Day
Thursday: Color Wars Day
Friday: Blue and White Day
