The last few weeks have been busy at Boaz High School.
Homecoming week had students dressed as “Pop Culture” icons, Sails Up shirts through the Pirate Foundation, Black Army, class colors and jerseys. Spirit Olympics was as much fun as ever. Seniors came in first in Spirit Olympics. The Jimmy Harris VFW in Boaz provided a sheltered location for students to build floats for the homecoming parade. Judging resulted in the Junior class winning the competition; and the Junior class won the overall homecoming week.
After homecoming came state testing week. BHS students were involved in either the ASVAB, Pre-ACT, or Work Keys standardized testing. The intensity of the testing usually leaves the students looking traumatized and wishing for some leave time. Juniors participated in a “mock ACT” testing for future practice.
The English 101 class has been reading “The Haunting of Hill House.” Students wrote their own “scary” story to read aloud in class. After recently reading “Frankenstein,” students created their own “monsters.”
The Senior class experienced Boaz High School, participating in a walking tour highlighting the evolution of the structure. The tour was intended to increase their appreciation of surroundings; no matter where you happen to be, to learn about where you happen to be at any given time of your life.
Teachers who were also former BHS graduates provided insight into how much has changed.
