One of our core values here at BHS is community. Each one of our students, teachers, and staff make it one of their goals to create a safe and supportive community throughout the school. One of our favorite times of year to see the incredible community we get to be a part of is in February.
In February, we put on two events; Week of Wishes, which leads up to Jam the Dam. Our Sports and Event Marketing class connects with businesses in the community to sign sponsors and receive donations that help run our event. With sponsors, donations, and money from our silent auction, we raise enough money to sponsor multiple kids’ wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon. We not only get to provide a fun night for students and our community, but we also get to give back to the community in a big way.
We have been putting on these events and partnering with the Make-A-Wish for over 14 years! These events not only signify our core value of community, but help represent our other values such as excellence, learning, and tradition.
