The Belfast Area High School National Art Honor Society is hosting it's first annual ARToberFEST on Thursday, October 26th, from 5:30-7:30, in the Fine Arts Wing at the high school. This event is truly designed for ALL ages!In addition to a fall themed Creative Zone with a variety of art making opportunities, there will be an Art Scoop (ice cream sundae) station, and silent auction!

Students are working to raise funds for a field trip down to the Boston Museum of Art. While the admission is waived for Maine students accompanied by their teacher, and there is an opportunity for discounted tickets on the Amtrak leaving out of Brunswick, the students still need to raise a good chunk of money to offset costs for travel and incidentals.

Silent Auction Items are being collected as we speak. If you have items you would like to donate to our silent auction, please contact Heidi O'Donnell at hodonnell@rsu71.org or drop them off at the BAHS front desk - attn: Heidi O'Donnell. Please continue to check back often - especially early next week! Here is a folder of what we have so far!

The NAHS created 25 centerpieces for the cafeteria! These will be auctioned off as well.

Football and Other Games at BAHS' Bryant Field

posted Oct 13, 2017, 8:42 AM by Butch Richards   [ updated Oct 13, 2017, 8:42 AM ]

We're so happy to welcome the entire RSU 71 community to all of our community-building sporting events at BAHS.  It is glorious to have crowds present to cheer on our district athletes and to enjoy the fresh air, conversation, concession stand and school band.

To ensure our good reputation and the safety of fans we have created some basic expectations. 
  1. Children under 12 must be supervised by adults. Rough housing and fighting are not allowed. 
  2. Belfast fans need to stay on the Belfast side of the field.
  3. The unlit end-zone is off-limits and roped off. Fans are not allowed to play there.
  4. For safety reasons students may not roll down the hills that extend from the concession stand to the bleachers. .
  5. For safety reasons students are not allowed to bring footballs to play with during games. 
We encourage you to enjoy football games and other special community events at Bryant Field and to cheer, eat, have fun, be kind and be safe!   Please feel free to be in touch with BAHS Principal Mary Alice McLean, Assistant Principal & Athletic Director Terry Kenniston and our Student Resource Officer Greg Stearns.
