BHS Symphonic Band Earns All-Superior Rating Concert Eval.

The BHS Band, under the direction of Josh and Jada Forsythe, earned all superior ratings at the State Concert Evaluation held at Tupelo High School on Tuesday, April 4th. This topped off an incredible year in which the band earned a superior rating in every caption of every evaluation for the entire year, qualifying them once again as a Sweepstakes Award winning band. A tradition of pride, determination, and success was established long ago, and this group of young men and women have stepped up and not only continued to achieve high levels of success, but have set a new bar for what is means to be a Blue Devil band member. This year's graduating senior class has won the 3A State Marching Championship and earned all superior ratings at State Concert Evaluation all four years of their high school career. Congratulations to everyone who plays a role in the success of this incredible band program.

Homecoming 2016


Homecoming Week Festivities

Hydroponics and Aquaponics at BHS

The AgriScience class and the APBiology class at BHS are partnering in an experimental trial to grow food sources in a more environmentally friendly manner without the use of chemicals or even soil. Hydroponics (growing plants in water) and Aquaponics (growing plants and fish together) are not new topics, but not many high school students have the opportunity to observe and participate in these farming practices right in their classrooms. Mr. Jared Beasley has created a 4 feet by 8 feet float pond using dense foam board to hydroponically grow various leafy greens in his greenhouse. Mr. DeVaughn has a 100 gallon aquarium and is raising 20 blue talapia with duckweed, water hyacinth, and water lettuce growing on the surface and Romaine lettuce growing on a foamboard float. Both classes are focusing on the nutrients provided and how they cycle through the water, plants, and fish to create an ideal growing environment. Right now, we are not sure how well this will work out, but hopefully students will see that agriculture can be carried out in unconventional manners yet yield successful, environmentally friendly products.

Booneville High School Varsity Football, Slow Pitch Softball, and Cross Country athletes will come to the high school Commons for sports physicals on Thursday, July 28th at 6:00 p.m.

"The Promise" was fulfilled with a 4th Consecutive State Championship trophy

The Booneville High School Marching Blue Devil Band is the 2016 MSHAA 3A State Marching Champion. All of the hard work put in from July's band camp until now has paid off once again. This year's senior class has enjoyed success like no group before. The band won 3 consecutive championships from 2009-2011, but fell just short in 2012. However, Booneville has been at the top since 2013. The top 5 bands in the finals are normally separated by a few tenths of a point. Booneville scored an 87.425, topping this year's second place band by about 8 points. No one involved is ready to rest on laurels, though. Talk has already begun as to next year and how continued improvement can be pursued. After all, the BBDB has a half century record of superior ratings and an extended band family that continues to be supportive and encouraging. Often being heard shouting "Go Big Blue", the fans know it's always "A Great Day to be a Blue Devil !"
