• Playground Update

    In just over 6 weeks, BHIS will have a new playground! Our build date is Wednesday, October 26th (with prep days on the 24th and 25th). This is a MAJOR project and we need your help! Committee chairs are in place but we need a tremendous amount of volunteer support to pull this off.
  • Welcome Principal Virga

    We are very pleased to introduce Katie Virga as our new principal. Ms. Virga has been putting in long hours at BHIS this summer to get our school ready for a successful and positive school year.

    Before being chosen as the new principal at BHIS, Ms. Virga served three years as Principal at RISE Community School in East Oakland, CA.

    Ms. Virga earned a bachelor’s in psychology and education at Wheaton College, a master’s in education in curriculum and teaching at Fitchburg College and an administrator certificate through the New Leaders Principal Residency and Training Program.

    A native of Boston, MA, Ms. Virga moved to Seattle to start her career in education. She has taught math, social studies and language arts at Salmon Bay K-8 School, as well as reading, AVID and art at Meany Middle School. Ms. Virga has also worked internationally; she was a math teacher and department head at the Columbus School in Medellin, Colombia.

    In her spare time, Ms. Virga likes to read and do yoga. Her favorite playground game is four square.

    Please join us in giving Ms. Virga a warm welcome to BHIS. We are thrilled to have her join our amazing team of teachers, staff, students, and parents.

  • Help Replace Our Playground

    Sadly, our school's 40-year-old playground finally broke beyond repair, leaving our students with blacktop, wood chips, and a couple basketball hoops for recess. The under-funded school district has indicated that it's uncertain if the playground structure will ever be replaced, and that if it is, it won't be any time soon.

    Visit our fundraising page to find out how you can help.
