Welcome to our school!



B-HVS in the news!

Last week a reporter from the Citizen visited B-HVS and wrote an article about some of the programs we offer in our greenhouse. The article is no longer available to view without an online subscription, but we do have some extra copies in the office. You can also see it framed in the greenhouse entryway along with a couple of beautiful pictures of some of the plants the students have grown. Follow the link below to see the article in Thursday’s Citizen (3/31/16) on the B-HVS greenhouse. http://tinyurl.com/hcgsqj7

PSU's Portable Planetarium
On Thursday we were fortunate to have Plymouth State University’s Portable Planetarium set up in the gym for the day. PSU Planetarium Director Dennis
Machnik presented a 40-minute show to each class inside the dome under a 
projected image of the night sky. He spoke to the students about stars, planets and 
constellations and shared many fascinating facts. The students had excellent 
questions and observations. A special thanks to PSU for this opportunity!

Spring Weather
Spring weather is starting to make a frequent appearance. Although the forecast may be for warm temperatures in the afternoon, our morning recess time is often quite chilly. Please remind your child to dress in layers to accommodate this temperature fluctuation.

B-HVS STEM Challenge
Gold Coin Catapults
Each class divided into groups to build a catapult from popsicle sticks and elastic bands. The groups competed against each other in class to determine who could launch 5 gold coins the furthest combined distance.
The winning team from each class went on to compete against each other in a special assembly on Friday morning. 
1st and 2nd grade competed in one round, and 3rd, 4th and 5th in another.
The students showed great imagination and
innovation in their catapult designs.
Congratulations on another successful STEM
challenge!
