A student may letter any or all of their years in High School. However, you may only receive one jacket regardless of how many BHS programs you letter in. Multiyear letter winners may order a β€œbar” for their letter.

The district will provide letter jackets. The student pays for all accessory items and patches. Students earning a letter will be given ordering instructions. It will be their responsibility to order the jacket. Once you have earned 50 points total, please fill out the letter jacket form and return to Mr. Noyes (winds and percussion) or Ms. Debellis (color guard).
