Homecoming week was September 18-22. On Monday, only seniors could dress up, and they had pajama day. Trent Kort said, “Grant Streff had the best outfit on pajama day, because it was a kangaroo onsie.” There were many different pajama outfits. On Tuesday there was no school for parent teacher conferences. On Wednesday, it was mathletes vs. athletes. Students could choose to dress up as a jock or nerd! On Thursday it was color wars! Each class chose a color to wear as a class. Seniors chose pink, juniors had orange, sophomores chose red, freshman had black, 8th grade had purple, and 7th grade had yellow. On Friday, it was blue and white day to support the football team, and school. People painted their faces, and just enjoyed the day. Shawnie said, “my favorite dress up day was mathletes vs athletes, because I’m Amy from the Big Bang Theory.”
On Wednesday September 13, Blue Hill FFA went to Husker Harvest Day in Grand Island. Students were allowed to visit any booth with a friend. They walked around and saw different things like animals, cars, trucks, off-road vehicles and tractors. Irrigation companies like Reinke’s attended and gave students information.
There were hundreds of exhibitions that students were allowed to visit. One thing students loved most about visiting the booths was all of the free supplies that the vendors gave out. Senior FFA member, Trent Kort said, “Case IH was my favorite booth because I am a farmer and I love Case IH.” Many other schools attended and learned the ins and outs of the agriculture industry.

Far from a surprise, the Lady Bobcat volleyball won their game vs. the Silver Lake Mustangs in a Tuesday night matchup. They came out strong with a first set finish of 25-8, the second set was 25-3, and they closed the first and final set with a score of 25-4.
It was youth night, a chance for young volleyball players to watch the game and get recognized. The youth volleyball players got to high-five the high school players after they were introduced. This gave the kids a chance to see what they will experience in high school.

The volleyball team won against Doniphan 3-0. Blue Hill volleyball senior, Taylor Bonifas said,”the game wasn’t challenging like other games, but there were still times in the game that were tougher than others.”
The softball team won against Polk County 9-6.
Colby Karr got 1st place at the Superior Cross Country meet. According to Karr, “From the bang of the gun to the finish line, I was in 1st the whole race.”
It was a good day for Blue Hill Athletics!
ShawThis school year Blue Hill Schools’ teachers are celebrating the public school communities by wearing an I ❤ Public Schools shirt once a month.
The shirts are part of NE<3PS (Nebraska Loves Public Schools). http://nelovesps.org/about/. Their mission is to help promote the good moments of the public school systems by taking photos, videos, and making them into films.
They also sell shirts that say, “I ❤ Public Schools.” These shirts are to promote the wellbeing of public schools. The staff of Blue Hill will be allowed to wear their shirts with jeans on the first friday of every month if they so choose.
Mrs. Kohmetscher, a Blue Hill High School teacher, commented on what that day means to her, “I ❤ Public Schools Day is a time for teachers, students, and the community to celebrate public schools and education. It is neat to see teachers from other schools out in public wearing their different colored shirts.”
The I ❤ Public Schools days will be a wonderful way to promote learning in public school communities.
