Please share this with your students! Literature can sustain us in times of crisis (like a pandemic). Books provide an escape, teach us new things, give us something to do, something to talk about, and something to look forward to.

Also, the library is still doing our monthly events. So make sure your students are utilizing the library website. There is a lot of fun stuff on there!

The DEN is a place that Bears Sleep until it is time to come alive and defend "OUR HOUSE!" The DEN shows up at home games and can travel if needed. DEN is in the senior section of the GYM. You have to be a current member of the BBHS student body to have membership (ASB Cards) in the DEN. Your job is to cheer for our team as loud as you can. Our staff protects the DEN. And bears always show class. The Bears have been hibernating all summer time to come alive and defend! GO BEARS!
