BHS Alumni...was your photo on the Athletic Wall?

posted Oct 23, 2017, 6:43 AM by Melissa Ohlendorf   [ updated Oct 23, 2017, 7:10 AM ]

Dear Community Partners:

Beecher High School is seeking community input on how to best display historical athletic pictures that were previously on the wall by the main gym. These pictures have been taken down to make room for the new Athletic Wall of Fame and are safely stored. We are interested in displaying them in a different way that still recognizes these important historical achievements. Please take a minute to complete a survey using the link below to provide your input. Your feedback is much appreciated and will be used to determine what to do with the historic athletic wall photos.

Thank you.

The "BE..." Bench

posted Oct 16, 2017, 12:49 PM by Melissa Ohlendorf

The Be...Bench project was created to spread a message of encouragement and inspiration.  The bench will stay at the high school, but t-shirts and sweatshirts are now available to help spread the message outside the school building! 

 Why BE…?  There will be times in life when we will face different circumstances and challenges, these situations have the potential to affect us in a positive or negative way.   It is how we respond to those circumstances that can make all the difference in our mental health and overall well being.   


The purpose of the BE...Bench is to encourage and inspire others to think about who they are, and how they display their personal character.   The BE...Bench is a visual reminder for all who view it to BE… 

How will you finish your BE...statement?

T-shirts and sweatshirts with the BE...message may be purchased through an online store until October 27, 2017. Orders may be shipped directly to the purchaser. For local orders only, shirts may be shipped to Beecher High School. A pick up date will be announced at a later time. A portion of all sales will be donated to the school to support social/emotional and mental health initiatives.

There are many different colors and styles to choose from!  Follow this link to order:
