Submit Your Work to Yawp Literary Magazine!

Yawp Literary Magazine is a new creative arts journal at BWHS. At the end of each school year, our staff will publish and sell a new volume of the magazine featuring West students’ writing and art. We believe that each of you has something valuable and unique to express - a yawp* - and we hear you. So, let us share your yawp with the school and community through our magazine.

Submit your writing (poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction), art (2D or 3D), photography, screenplays, and original scores and get the chance to become a published author or artist in Volume I of the magazine. Please turn in submissions by March 1st, 2019 to any of the following locations:

1. Email or share submissions electronically with Ms. Hill: khill@bentonvillek12.org.

! CHECKING IN AND OUT !

There is a new Check IN/OUT system.  Please use the Chrome books in the office to fill out the form.  There will be no more paper forms!  Make sure you are doing this each time you Check IN late or Check OUT early.  Parents also need to notify attendance of the absence.  Students without an 18 consent form are not allowed to check themselves in or out without parental consent or a doctor note per the handbook.  Parents may call, email or send a handwritten note with the student if they aren't able to check them in.  If you check out and then return without signing back in, you will be absent for the rest of the day.

Please continue to send your student's attendance information to bwhsattendanceclerk@bentonvillek12.org.  Sending it to this email address will allow others to make sure the job is done in case I am out of the office. Feel free to call me at 479-286-9668 if you any questions.
