Bonham ISD is excited to offer our college bound students an opportunity to tour college campuses for the second consecutive year. Last year, several tours were planned and proved beneficial to students deciding their next step after high school. Earlier this week, students traveled by bus to tour Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma and learned the admissions criteria and experience first-hand what campus life is like in the residence halls and the overall college experience.
Thank you to everyone who came to the BHS gym today to celebrate the 25th Regional Veterans Day Observance. The event was moved to the gym due to weather but it remained a moving ceremony.

Throughout the week of Homecoming, donations were collected from four home games. Combined with a generous donation from Cable One, the result was an $8,000 donation to the Bonham Police Department to aid in the purchase of these body cams.

Accompanying Bankston for the presentation were Lieutenant Terry Bee, Sergeant Tammy Boehlers, Sergeant Joe Gentry, Officer Bryant Smith, and BISD Resource Officer Dale Day.

You come to Meet the Teacher Night and stare at the list of classes. Really, that teacher? You so did not want Mrs. Smith for your child. Or you look at that list and realize your son’s bully from last year has ended up in his class. Or maybe it’s that every day these first few weeks, your daughter has had something bad to say about Mrs. Jones and what happened in class that day.
In the fall of 2013, the Bonham ISD Board of Trustees approved a list of numerous facility improvement projects recommended by the Capital Projects Committee. It has been nearly two years since the district secured the money to improve a multitude of facilities. The list of capital improvement projects was extensive and has improved facilities across the district, aligning with one of the board goals: to provide our staff and students with the best facilities possible. In order to remain transparent, Dr. Beaty has provided a detailed update on the current state of these projects and has answered additional questions of public concern.
