Challenge Day 2017 is coming! December 7, 2017 to BHS


Challenge
 Days are powerful, high energy programs in which youth and adult participants are guided through a series of experiential learning experiences. The overall goals of the program are to increase personal power and self esteem, to shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support and to eliminate the acceptability of teasing, violence and all forms of oppression. Challenge Days are designed to unite the members of the school and to carry the themes of the program back to the greater school population. 

When: December 7th
Location: BHS Gym
Who:YOU!! Any grade 9-12 student who has not participated before! 
What time: 7:55-2:35.
What else: excused absence, we don't cry all day, fun games, new friendships and a way to get involved in a movement to improve your school climate

PSAT

PSAT - Wednesday, October 11th will be a unique day!  The in-school PSAT will take place on 10/11/2017 and all sophomore students are required to take the exam. BHS will be covering the cost of the exam for all sophomores. 

PSAT testing will also be open to 9th and 11th graders who elect to take the exam. We have ordered more exams than ever taken in the past, based on prior testing sign-ups in the 9th and 11th grade and the total enrollment of the sophomore class. Because the number of tests ordered for 9th and 11th grade students is an educated “guestimate,” spots are available on a first come-first serve basis and juniors will have priority.  The cost of the test to 9th and 11th grade students is $25 (check made out to BHS). 

Please visit the Counseling Office to sign-up. Seniors can choose to spend the day planning for their futures (i.e. going on college campus tours, attending college fairs, meeting with military recruiters, seeking out interviews, etc.) In addition, competency recovery instruction will be offered during the morning for any students who would like extra help and are not planning on taking the PSAT. Remember that all sophomores are required to attend school and take the exam.

Registration deadline:  September 29, 2017
