For freshmen, the best part about high school is getting connected. It's finding that perfect after-school club, meeting the teacher of your favorite subject, and learning that seniors are often more helpful than scary. 
The class of 2023 participated in Freshmen Connection tonight at BHS where they were able to ask questions of a panel of upperclassmen and get to know their school. Parents and guardians also had their questions answered during a presentation from building leaders. 
Welcome to Raider Nation, class of 2023!

Like a good neighbor, 28 State Farm volunteers from ESS&P and CCC Admin utilized their “Team CS/ES” volunteer day last week to give back to the first grade and special education classrooms at Irving! Volunteers helped teachers prepare their rooms for the upcoming school year. The team also presented these teachers with grants, classroom supplies, and a Cricut Machine! We're so appreciative of this group and their compassion for our teachers and students!

Do you know a child who needs some reading practice and a back-to-school haircut? 📖 💇‍♂️ Thanks to an idea from our own board member, Mary Yount, Barbers With Books was born! @westbloomington Revitalization Project is teaming up with local barbers to provide discounted haircuts to children who read a book to the barber during their trim.

Two barbershops currently participating are A Kut Above (919 W. Market) and One of a Kind Barbershop (104 E. Monroe). Books are provided from The Book Bike! 📸: Doug DeLong #Barberswithbooks #read #books #confidence #barbershop #haircut #backtoschool #community #support #westbloomington #GreatToBeInD87

Do you remember this educator?
Betty Baumgardner graduated from Illinois State University before teaching physical education at Bloomington High School from 1961-1991. She also taught tennis class during summer school, instructed evening PE classes, and chaired a swimming program. She still lives in Bloomington and is an avid golfer.
What fond memories do you have of Ms. B at BHS?
