- Attention BDHS Buddy Volunteers who signed up to help with our Japanese student visitors next Wednesday morning…. There is a list of 'buddies' in the hall outside the office, and important information about our upcoming organizational meeting this Monday at lunch. Please check the list today to make sure your name is included. If you have questions, see Mr. Stone.
- The Jr Boys football team traveled to Barrie North yesterday to play one of the best teams in the league. Arriving somewhat unprepared, the Bucs ramped up their intensity in warm-up and came out firing in the first quarter. They contained North to their half of the field, but were unable to score. As the second half progressed some untimely errors cost the Bucs on the scoreboard. The team continues to improve in all aspects and is eager to perform in front of a home crowd next week.
- Yesterday the cross-country team traveled to Little Lake Park in Midland to compete in their 4th race of the season. Notable finishers were Olivia Vernon who once again improved on her previous finish and Alexa Geertsema who finished her 5km race in 8th place in a field of 60 runners. Well done team! See you at Monday's practice.
