‘The Crucible’ comes to BHS stage May 17-19

The award-winning play, “The Crucible,” will be performed at Burnsville High School at 7 p.m. on May 17, 18 and 19 and at 2:30 p.m. on May 19, in the Mraz Center, 600 E. Highway 13.

The play focuses on a farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie, and the plot thickens. Written by Arthur Miller, “The Crucible” won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953.

May is Mental Health Awareness month

Burnsville High School's #BurnsvilleStrong club will be promoting Mental Health Awareness during the week of May 7. 

Each day, there will be an announcement to inform and educate about mental health and how to support ourselves and each other.

Good mental health isn’t the absence of mental health issues - we all have them. However, it is the ability to cope and continually learn how to deal with stressors in our lives in ways that are positive and healthy.

Parents and students can check out the Mental Health Minutes that will be posted to Schoology each day.

Who was a favorite teacher or staff member and why?
Miss Hansen is my favorite staff member at BHS. I really enjoyed being in her class and having her as my director because she cares about her students and their well being, while holding an incredible passion that brings out the best version of herself and her students.

What makes you most excited when you think about your future?
What I'm most excited for when I finish high school is the ability to meet new people and make lasting connections with people I've never met before.

Mr. Tesmer and Mr. Wolf. They are always there for me when I need help. I can sit, chill, and talk about life all day with the both of them.
