Message from the Principal:
It is already time for conferences for the 4th quarter, which is Thursday, May 8. Please contact your student’s teachers if they are struggling in any classes or need to make up assignments. The Before/After School program is a great time for students to get extra help and time to complete their missing work. The Before/After program will END Thursday, May 15th.
We have started a new behavior and academic support program called Twilight School. If students are struggling during the day they will be referred to Twilight school to work on their academics and behaivor skills. Individual parent and student meetings will be held for this program.
As the instructional team continues to look at our literacy performance data, we will now be focusing more on literacy tools that will support students on how to use them in each of their core classes. This means we will focus more on how the students are learning “how to read” their content material.
Summer School Programming will talke place this summer at BCCHS. It will opperate Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., July 7th through August 14th. The academic focus will be on reading and mathematics as well as some study skills and enrichment opportunities.

CHANGE OF INFORMATION: Please make sure your student(s) contact information is correct and current. It is very important that this information is kept current at all times. Please make sure the contact names are correct as we will NOT release any student to anyone who is not on the master list. Please call or stop by the school office.
PARENT CONNECT: Is a web portal for parents to access information about their students. Lunch information, grades and news from school will be available with a simple login and password. Contact the school secretary to sign up today.
MEDICATION: All prescribed medications must have a written prescription form from the physician accompanying any medications given out to the students. Please make sure all prescriptions are clearly labeled, including inhalers. Inhalers must have a prescription on the box, or labeled on the inhaler without a box. This ensures us that we are administering the correct medications to your students. Thank you for your cooperation.
