Message from BHS

We are excited to present our new opportunities for summer school this year which is offering more credit options than ever before.  These opportunities are open to in-district students and out-of-district students!  We are excited to provide the chance for some of our incoming freshman to gain full credit in courses such as Algebra I and Physical Science, along with many other courses.  Additionally, we are offering for the first time, an online session with a multitude of courses available.  I am attaching the Summer School Flyer and an FAQ page.


Garden Club Looking for Tools!

The WJHS Garden Club has been given the opportunity to redo the flower beds in the front of the building this spring. The school is donating the funds for plants, but we need tools! We are looking for donations of used (or new) garden tools such as pruners, loppers, garden rakes, and shovels. And we could really use a wheelbarrow! Contact Libby Brown at libbrown@bentonvillek12.org if you can help. Thank you in advance and happy spring!
