Heron Happenings – August 27- September 1

We had a great week at BCHS! Students are getting into the flow of the school year. Students will be getting closer and closer to having more test, quizzes, and homework. Please make sure to discuss with your child about their grades and attendances — both are vital for success!

Great first week!! 2018-2019

We had a great first week at BCHS! The teachers and students were magnificient all week long!

We will begin on new vocabulary words school wide on Monday. Students will be learning 10 academic vocabulary in all four blocks and will be quizzed in all four block over these words. Teachers will have the autonomy to add in content vocabulary words in their class. It will be paramount for your students to learn these 10 words because they will be recieve a quiz grade every week in every class!

Open House and New to the Nest

We welcome all students and parents to our open house tonight! We have decided to open up all student schedules — students can view their schedules on PowerSchool at this time! The only students that may have some “holes” in their schedules will be those that are doing dual enrollment classes with a local college. We are working to finalize those courses!

We are requesting that all 9th grade students and parents be at our “New to the Nest” event tonight! It will start sharply at 5:00 PM tonight. We will go to homeroom and then have a simulated day by ringing the bells and allowing students to travel from class to class! We hope this will ease some anxiety for students on the first day!

We are excited about the new school!! We are asking every student and faculty member to step up and be the change… if you see someone needs help, help them — don’t wait for someone else to do it – let’s step up together and help each other!!!

Please be aware that we are not taking schedule change request at this time. We will have a procedure for schedule change request at open house tonight or students can following the procedures that will be discussed in homeroom on Monday!

Please let us know if you have questions! We will do our best to answer them in a timely manner!!
