Soon, we’ll be hittin’ the bricks


These won’t be just more bricks in a wall.

These bricks will pave the way to the future of Bigfork High School as students and staff members start using the updated and upgraded building.

The BHS Senior Class wants to throw itself a graduation party, as it has in years past. And they inherited a unique and lasting method of raising the money.

The seniors are selling personalized bricks that will be used to pave a courtyard outside the new administration offices on the east side of the building. For the tidy donation of $50, anyone can have a 4-by-8-inch brick etched with whatever they want.

The brick sales correspond neatly with the campus renovations and will serve as a memorial for decades to come.

“I am so glad to be a part of that,” said Senior Class President Julie Saunders, who plays sports and leads the town in her picture appearing in the Beagle. She hopes to sell at least 300 bricks before the April 28 deadline, up from the 280 sold last school year.

Bricks typically last 100 years or more which means these Vals and Vikes might be returning to re-dedicate their handywork from time to time.

The impact of potentially becoming a dignitary at a 25th Anniversary ceremony in 2042 did not escape Senior Victoria Hiza.

“It might be weird coming back to a campus we might not even recognize,” she said. Supporters can find an order form below.
