Once again, we will be having “The Penguin Patch” store! The Penguin Patch store is set to be open for students the week of Dec. 5-9.


The Penguin Patch is a store set up for the elementary students to shop for (inexpensive) Christmas gifts for their family members. Letters and envelopes are being sent home with Elementary students. This is a great opportunity for our younger students to be able to do their own shopping (with help from our FCCLA students) for their loved ones.


Student of the Week is ADELINE SLATTERY! Adeline is prepared for class, takes her work seriously, asks questions if she doesn’t understand, pays attention to detail, and isn’t afraid to work. Way to go, Adeline!!!


The BHS Artists of the Month for October are (l to r):  Zariah Anderson, Sophie Teynor, Mercedes Brueggeman, and Maddie Honaker. They used white charcoal to draw the highlights rather than the shadows which is more difficult.


The closing of school because of emergency conditions will be announced the following ways: On our School District Facebook page (; An email, text, and voice recording sent to families via SchoolMessenger; Annnouncements on the following radio and television stations:  Radio-WCOW 97.1 FM, WBOG 94.5 FM, WVRO 102 FM; Television-WKBT La Crosse Channel 8, WXOW La Crosse Channel 19.
