Homecoming King and Queen

Henry Huss and Courtney Armstrong were crowned king and queen of Badger High School's Homecoming at the annual pep assembly. The theme of Homecoming 2019 was Home Sweet Home.
 The NHS students collected plastic bags to cut and weave into "yarn" balls. These are then shipped to Haiti where women weave them into mats for the homeless.
AG Science Day 2019

Nearly 300 third graders from Central-Denison, Randall, Star Center, Traver and Woods Schools spent time learning about agriculture science at Badger High School on Friday, October 18th. The hands-on experience exposes the children to the career pathways in the world of agriculture and excites them for when they will be students at the high school.
Principal's Note
“When you’re an Addams, you need to have a sense of humor”.

The Addams Family is coming to Badger. November 7-9th our Auditorium will be transformed into a home many of us (dating myself) know and love. Our theater students have been practicing since late summer to dazzle audiences. Please join us for this raucous adventure.  

The last month has been full of athletic and academic achievements. Our staff and administration are very proud of our students and their successes. What has been most impressive as I’ve watched our fall athletes is the camaraderie and support that is shown for each other AND those they compete against. The benefits to our students are vast. Teamwork, endurance, competition, diversity and a sense of culture and community are all the positive outcomes of student engagement in extracurricular activities. Students are engaged in a wide variety of non-athletic activities as well. DECA, FFA, and FCCLA, have all been active this fall with students competing and receiving recognition for accomplishments.  

Thank you to all our parents/guardians who travel to competitions, warm up food for an after practice meal, drop off snacks when a rehearsal goes long, and support ALL our students as they pursue their interests. Please talk with your student about getting involved in an extracurricular activity at Badger. It is a fun way to meet people who share a common interest and data supports that engagement in activities at school outside the school day have a positive impact on student achievement.
