Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors attended an awards banquet on May 12 to be recognized for their academic achievements and successes. The night was started off with the Outstanding Junior Awards presented by the Lions Club and Masonic Lodge. Blane Barnes received the Outstanding Junior Award from the Lions club, Olivia Gettman and Matthew Knickerbocker received the Outstanding Junior Awards from the Masonic Lodge. The members of National Honor Society were then awarded for their participation and success in maintaining a high grade point average and completing at least twenty hours of community service. Each received a patch for their letterman jackets for their active participation in NHS. All underclassmen were then awarded academic letters for maintaining their high GPA for three consecutive semesters. BHS teachers each came up afterwards in separate departments, from English to Art, awarding their students for specific accomplishments and highest class average in each of each of their classes. Knowledge Bowl members were also awarded letters for the participation in the cub and their successes in the state competition just recently. The night was an absolute success for the students who were awarded for their achievements in academics.

Zach Kujath was elected president, Ariel Fender was elected vice president and secretary, Marshall Carter got treasurer, Brittany Lane was elected Sergeant-at-Arms, James Ferguson was elected Fundraising officer, and the remaining officers are Derrick Cox, Tanner Lirot, Matt Blanton, Atlee Beam, Newley Packer, and Nick Theobold. Honorary member, Michael Fusco, will be acting in the roll of eCommerce Consultant. All members are looking forward to entering the fray next year with full force. Pyatt says, "We have a number of potential competitions we could enter and the students are motivated to do well. I think we can certainly get State and maybe Nationals." According to Mr Pyatt, "The Technology Student Association is the only Career Technical Student Organization dedicated to Technology & STEM. The Technology Student Association fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in technology, innovation, design, and engineering. Members apply and integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts through co-curricular activities, competitions and related programs."

The Technology Student Association's Creed:

I believe that Technology Education holds an important place in my life in the technical world. I believe there is a need for the development of good attitudes concerning work, tools, materials, experimentation, and processes of industry. Guided by my teachers, artisans from industry, and my own initiative, I will strive to do my best in making my school, community, state, and nation better places in which to live. I will accept the responsibilities that are mine. I will accept the theories that are supported by proper evidence. I will explore on my own for safer, more effective methods of working and living. I will strive to develop a cooperative attitude and will exercise tact and respect for other individuals. Through the work of my hands and mind, I will express my ideas to the best of my ability. I will make it my goal to do better each day the task before me, and to be steadfast in my belief in my God, and my fellow Americans.

Career Internships

Published on 04/15/2014 at 9:02 a.m. by aroach

Last Semester, some students in Jessica Robbin's Gifted and Talented group signed up for professional internships. This January twenty-first, these students met with local professionals that were deemed ideal to be their mentors. These students are now almost done with their internships in careers spanning from computer programming to wildlife park range service, giving them early steps into their chosen fields. This program is expected to return next year, with a whole new batch of interns and mentors, giving even more kids experience in the work world. In the future, good things will come of this, but what things, only time will tell.

Dodgeball Tournament

Published on 03/19/2014 at 8:41 a.m. by aroach

The dodgeball tournament held at Bayfield High School on March 17th was an absolute success! About $325 was raised for the Make a Wish foundation that the school district is participating in this year. Eight teams played in double elimination games of dodgeball. The entry fee was twenty dollars per team. The winning team was Zach Kujath, Kyle Killough, Jesse Hunt, Cameron Seivert, Chris Kane, Max Miller, Maggie Baxter, and Celeste Faumui. It gave students and teachers a chance to participate in exciting and competitive dodgeball games with one another and was all for a great cause. Mrs. Aveis donated the concession money made that night to the foundation as well. The high school is getting closer and closer to their goal with two more fundraisers this week. The dodgeball tournament was an excellent way to get the students and staff involved in a great fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation.

Much Ado About Lunch

Published on 08/28/2013 at 9:52 a.m. by mgrayson


One of the many policy changes at BHS this year is off-campus lunch is now open to all upperclassmen. Previously just 12th-graders were allowed off campus. This is a victory for the juniors but something seniors love to grumble about. Anyone with transportation (or friends with cars) can go anywhere they want for lunch - provided they're back in time for their next class, which starts in just 45 minutes.

Many students think this isn't nearly enough time to really go anywhere. "The time is definitely too short," says senior Luke Hedges. "People who live far away, like Forest Lakes, don't have time to get home, and the lunch line is longer than it's ever been." Others, like senior Effie Nistler, take advantage of the time with no complaints. "It's fun to have the freedom to go wherever you want for lunch whether its your house or a friend's house or out to lunch."
