The kids in my extracurricular club are super! _ Henna Tattoo Fundraiser, 3/16/17

I'd like to give a big shout-out and thank-you to the students in my extracurricular club, the BHS Multicultural Club!

Once again, we were successful in raising money for our designated charity, through another successful "Henna Table Fundraiser."

Here are two pictures of our students who ran the table last night, during the BHS Spring Open House.
