Bob Hope School faculty and staff enjoyed a holiday send-off last week.

All BHS employees, district wide, from campuses in Port Arthur and Beaumont came together at the new Port Arthur elementary school gym/cafeteria building.

The holiday party included celebration and fellowship before leaving on the Christmas & New Years holiday break. 

Everyone was fed a BBQ lunch and there was entertainment by the Gary-Michael Dahl band, a jazz band from Houston. 

Employees played many games, had a Christmas song “sing off” competition and enjoyed the day.
