Weekend Update 2-13-22
Dear M100 Family,
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! It’s been an awesome week in San Antonio with the All State Musicians at TMEA culminating in absolutely incredible concerts! A link to some pictures below but more to come as we compile pictures from multiple cameras :-). Ask the guys about their experience!
Congratulations to our JV and Varsity WinterGuards! Both competed at the TCGC contest yesterday at Hendrickson HS. JV came in 6th and Varsity 3rd! Congratulations to both groups!
Thank you students for being a great audience to the Tarleton State University Wind Ensemble last Tuesday during their performance! Hope you enjoyed the concert! We are fortunate that a University group stopped by BHS to perform!
Thank you once again to the students, Mr. Kreger, and Mr. Smith for playing at the Boy’s Basketball game last Tuesday night. The audience loved you guys and you helped cheer on our BBall team to a commanding win! Go Tigers!

AJ HOWARD MEMORIAL 5K RACE - SAT., FEB. 19
The AJ Howard Memorial 5K will be Saturday, February 19, at Liberty Park in Belton. The race starts at 9am and offers a full 5K, a sleep-in 5K, and a 2-person relay. Registrants 18 & under get a reduced price for the full 5k.
We’ve included a 2-person relay for this year's event in the hope of offering something fun and it doesn't require someone to run the whole 3.1 miles. Teams of two, any gender mix, enter for $10 per person. The first person runs a 1.55 out and back course, tags their teammate, who then runs the same 1.55 mile course and finishes. The top male, mixed gender, and female teams will get a prize.
Pricing and race details can be viewed at https://runsignup.com/ajhowardmemorial5K
PLEASE HELP US ADVERTISE by sharing this on social media! We also have a Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/245915397529226
SPONSOR / VOLUNTEER:
Our Boosters are also looking for volunteers to help work at the race. If you can donate your time, here’s a link for parents to volunteer to work the 5k on Saturday, February 19th:
