Ground broken for new #BPpond


Krista Vandyke, Staff Writer

Students may have noticed some dirt being dug up in the courtyard this week. Believe it or not, we do not have a groundhog problem here at BPHS.

This is the beginning of a pond being created by Mr. Nagel and the Drama Club.

Mr. Nagel, an avid gardener and landscaper, took on the challenge of creating the new pond that is being funded by PACS.

Mr. Nagel brings a shovel or two to school, and the group gets to work after school while singing the song “Dig It Up” from the movie Holes. Mr. Nagel hopes to have the pond finished by the end of the school year.

Drama Club president Abby Martz said, “We hope to include salamanders, fish, and a turtle in the pond!”

Other students have their own hopes for the pond. Senior Taylor Scalise said, “I hope to see a dolphin in the pond.”

We will just have to wait and see how the pond looks at the end of the year!
