In order to better utilize the limited number of parking spots we have available in the student parking lots, we will NOT be issuing reserved parking spots in the Student Parking lot. Parking in the student lots will be on a first come first serve basis, however, any student who desires to park on the BHS Campus MUST have a parking permit affixed to the rear window of their car and must be registered in the main office. Student can register their cars and obtain their parking permits in the main office on Thursday, August 2nd from 8am to 1pm and on Friday, August 3rd from 2pm to 4:00pm. Students will need to provide their driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance. Also, if you need an additional parking permit because you may be borrowing your parent's car, you can purchase a 2nd permit for $2.00. In order to get this second permit, you must provide YOUR driver's license and the 2nd car's registration and proof of insurance. All permits must be affixed to rear window of car prior to parking in the student lots.

Everyone who has started a position or occupation begins as an Apprentice. That person usually has the knowledge of a subject, but actually learning the skills of the trade and the work environment is a new learning curve for that individual. Learning those subtle proficiencies that are needed to complete a project or interact with other people or students. The apprentice has learned from the master therefore can use those learned skills in other projects that will come in the future of the apprentice.
