Welcome BPHS Students and Parents,

On behalf of the staff at Big Piney High School, I would like to welcome all students, parents, and guardians to the start of the 2017-2018 school year.  The upcoming school year provides a new opportunity for students to achieve at the highest level possible.  A caring and professional staff is in place along with the resources needed to assist our students in their quest for the knowledge and skills necessary to be college and career ready. 

What’s new at Big Piney School this year?

Four new elective classes – Music Production, Percussion, Sports Nutrition and a Zero Hour Sports Weights class.  The Zero Hour course will run from 6:30 am to 7:30 am Monday through Thursday.  Although student schedules have been set, it’s not too late to check out these new electives.

In an effort to improve student reading proficiency in all grade levels at the high school, we will be collaborating this year with the University of Wyoming’s Literacy Center.  Staff from the University will be observing classes, visiting with both teachers and students and providing ideas to improve student literacy skills at BPHS. 

Big Piney High School will be implementing a learning management system called Canvas.  Canvas is an online learning management tool whose goal is to make teaching and learning easier.  Several of our staff members implemented a free version of Canvas into their classrooms this past school year.  With assistance from the Wyoming Department of Education, a complete version of Canvas is now available to school districts in Wyoming.

First Day of School Reminders:

School Starts - Thursday at 8:10 am. (Zero Hour begins at 6:30 am.)

Online Registration / Student Devices - Online registration forms must be completed before laptops will be handed out. Registration forms can be found at the following link: http://www.sublette9.org/home/bphs.

Prevent Costly Repair Fees - Students are encouraged to purchase a protective case for their school issued laptop to prevent repair costs passed on to students. 

It takes a community effort to educate students and as parents, it is my hope that you will be an active participant in your student’s education at Big Piney High School.  Feel free to contact the High School office regarding any questions you may have and stay in touch with school events by visiting the high school website at www. sublette9.org.
