The programs include Waterford Early Learning Reading for kindergarten and first grade, www.firstinmath.com (Grades 4-6), myON (Grades 1-6) and vocabulary.com (Grades 1-6). Waterford Home Access is emailed to you once you provide your email address to your child's teacher. First in Math allows your child to practice their math facts. myON is an online digital library collection in which books have already been recommended for your child based on his/her interests and lexile reading level. myON and vocabulary.com can be accessed at  clever.pgcps.org  using the student's county login credentials. Students are being challenged to read at least two books from myON and email Principal Walker at Lila.Walker@pgcps.org to share your book reviews.  All instrumental students should be practicing their instruments!!!
  • Vision

    We choose to have an atmosphere of respect for individual differences and community values built on creating a challenging learning environment in Science, Technology, Writing or Robotics, Engineering, Arts, and Math, which maximizes individual potential and ensures students are well-equipped to meet the challenges in the world around them.

  • Mission

    Our mission at BHES strives to create a school atmosphere that makes environmental sustainability a priority.  Utilizing the resources already set in place, we as a school will work towards integrating the STREAM curriculum so that it reaches across disciplines and age levels.  Students will be encouraged to meet academic challenges with enthusiasm, building confident and creative builders of an ecologically and environmentally sound earth.
