Beavercreek City Schools and Ferguson Hall are collecting excess Halloween candy to provide gratitude bags for local first responders and veterans. We will be collecting excess, pre-packaged Halloween candy throughout the week of November 1-4. District-wide collection sites this year include Ferguson Hall, Main Elementary, and Fairbrook Elementary where there will be bins in the entryway by the offices for parents and students to drop off during school hours. Please send the candy in Ziploc bags. Please no powder candy or sweet tarts. Thank you for your generosity in this worthwhile cause.

We have found that most students do not use their lockers at FH so we do not automatically assign them to all students. However, we definitely understand that lockers are important for some students and want to give them the flexibility to choose a locker that works best with their schedule. If a student wants a locker at Ferguson Hall they need to: 1) Get a lock; 2) Pick out a locker wherever in the building they think will work best; 3) Let the office know which locker you picked. We encourage you to "walk your schedule" for a couple of days to figure out which locker location works best.
Now is the time to think about clubs and activities for the upcoming year. Research shows that 9th graders who are involved in extracurricular activities earn better grades, have better attendance, and report being happier overall. There is a club, sport, or activity for almost everyone at Beavercreek and if your child cannot find one - encourage them to start their own! Here is a list of clubs and activities we have available as well as some research to support getting involved! https://www.ascd.org/el/articles/-extracurricular-activities-the-path-to-academic-success https://www.gocreek.org/o/bhs/page/beavercreek-high-school-clubs-groups-activities

We will have student volunteers to watch and play with younger children while we meet.
Freshmen Orientation will take place on August 10 from 8-noon. Drop off and pick up will take place at the BHS gymnasium. Students should wear comfortable clothes but do not need to bring any supplies.
