This week's winners have been nominated by Ms. Dolce:
"This past weekend members from National History Day represented BHS at Plymouth State University in a statewide competition. Many of these students have worked tirelessly since the summer creating engaging websites, exhibits, papers and even group performances that presented their rich analysis of original research topics. After watching these very talented (and very dedicated!) students last weekend, I would like to nominate Amanda Xie, Katelyn Hirnak, Emet Baker, Nikhil Gottemukkala, Srinivaas Chetlur, Vidhur Narayan, Claudia Reine, Kaitlyn Dinndorf and Sierra Dinndorf for Top Puppy. As state winners, these nine students will be heading to Washington, D.C. to represent BHS at the National Contest next month. A big congratulations and good luck to them!!"

"A few weeks ago I attended the Destination Imagination competition, and was blown away by the project that some of our students did. Mitchel Soederberg, Matt Helmke, Emily O’Brien, Lavinia Nash, Joey Carriello, and Jamie Karr, were instrumental in getting a warrant article on the ballot and passed to fund biodegradable trays in our lunchrooms. This group worked tirelessly with the community to write up the article and then talked to everyone they could about it. This is an issue that at least two other groups have tried to address in town, but Michael, Matt, Joey, Emily, Lavinia and Jamie are the first to actually make it happen.
As we have seen all too clearly, change happens when young people stand up and ask for it, and I am so proud of this group of students! For this reason, I would like to nominate the Destination Imagination group for Top Puppy!"

"I would like to nominate Hannah Riley for Top Puppy. Hannah is a thoughtful and passionate student activist who has emerged as a leader at BHS after the tragedy in Parkland. Hannah's moving speech about Parkland victim Alyssa Alhadeff was selected for the Concord March for our Lives on March 24th. Hannah was one of the handful of students across the state chosen to speak. Students finding their voices is one of the most important things happening in our country right now, and they make me proud to live here."
