On Wednesday, May 4 students from BJH attended the District 3 MMEA Honors Band and Chorus festival in Freeport. Students were chosen for this festival through audition. Their high level of musicianship as well as their hard work and dedication was very evident at this festival. Way to go BJH musicians! We are proud of you!
On Wednesday, April 27 BJH Chorus students were treated to a workshop from Opera Maine. They came to teach about the storytelling, staging, and of course singing of Opera. Students were then provided an opportunity to join in and to experience Opera in Maine this summer with free tickets to the Opera. For more information, feel free to contact Mrs. Tarleton! Thank you Opera Maine and BJH chorus students for a fantastic afternoon!

6th grade science classes completed a Candy Corn lab as part of our study of the scientific method. Similar to a lab they designed and conducted earlier with Alka Seltzer, students tested out various liquids to see which dissolved a candy corn the most in ten minutes. Liquids tested include water, a mixture of baking soda and water, and vinegar. Which do you think dissolved the candy corn the fastest? What else would you try?
