STABLE TALK News from the Campus of Barnwell High School

Friday, October 24, was a busy day on the BHS campus with several events taking place for students.
First of all, seniors were given the opportunity to participate in the college application day. Then, during both lunches, all students could receive a "Proud To Be Drug Free" bracelet by signing the drug-free pledge. At the end of the day, students who had not been tardy to any of their classes during the first quarter were allowed to participate in the first quarter tardy party.
The Warhorse Football Team also hosted Ridgeland-Hardeeville in a key region match-up on Friday evening.
