Spring may be here…at last

OK, it is starting to feel like spring! Before everyone runs out and buys sunscreen, remember that we may get a shower or too.

Testing this spring and more!!

We have scheduled our spring NWEA testing for the last week of the 29th of April to the 3rd of May. This should give us some time to teach.

The site is called confession to bhs. Today we recieved...

Maybe by getting our track team started we can get old man winter to leave us alone. This week we took the time to revisit with some of our seniors about getting thier grades up. Some of them are on some pretty tight timelines and schedules and have not left much room for error. As...

Winter Blast and Going Fast

I enjoy snow as much as the next guy but I didn’t need more. We will make this day up on April 1. This is no April fools day joke, we will have school. One of the Bottineau happenings was the college women’s playoff game. The DCB women picked up the win so they are...
