SO WHAT ARE THE DRILLER WAY TICKETS?

 

In a normal school setting, all BHS staff members have “Driller Way” tickets at their disposal. If you get caught doing something great or living the Driller Way, you can earn one of these tickets. Once received, simply fill out your name, bring your ticket stub to the SAB or Main Office, and drop it in the prize bucket!  Each week winners will be drawn to receive really cool prizes!  

 

Even though we will be starting the year in a distance learning format, staff members will still be able to nominate students for virtual Driller Way tickets.  We are still determining how students can redeem their virtual tickets for prizes but stay tuned for updates!
