Student Literacy Book Drive Literacy

The superintendent’s student advisory council will be running a book drive until 1/15/2020 to help increase the literacy rates of elementary school students.  All books will be donated to elementary school students who are in need of books.  Please drop books off at school in the front office for Mr. Hughes or teachers can send to room 218.

Help make a difference in our youth literacy.

Esports is here at BCHS. This is our final call for anyone interested in playing Rocket League for the inaugural Esports team.  Come out and be a part of history.

It is important to stop by and confirm your spot with Mr. Hughes (mike.hughes@boone.kyschools.us) (even if you signed up before) in room 218 as the league begins 1st week of February.  Bring your own team of 3 or join up with others taking the drive into E-sports.

Tobacco Free tobacco free

In 2019, the Kentucky legislature passed HB11, a statewide 100% Tobacco Free School bill. 100% Tobacco Free Schools prohibit tobacco use, including vapor products and alternative nicotine products, by staff, students and visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, inside Board-owned buildings or vehicles, on school owned property and during school-sponsored events, trips and activities. The primary goals of these policies include reducing exposure to secondhand smoke and encouraging tobacco users to consume less of the addictive product.
The more significant long-term effect of these policies, however, is to reduce youth tobacco use by reducing student exposure to tobacco use as an acceptable behavior by role models important to their development. For additional information about tobacco free schools, visit the Tobacco Free Schools website.
