Burlington High School Grade 9 Parent Breakfast Recap

While I love the fact that we can do a better job communicating with our stakeholders with social media, there is nothing better than we get a chance to get together in the same space.  This week we had the chance to meet with the parents of about 50 9th graders to talk about BHS. It was the first of many face-to-face meetings parents will have the opportunity to take advantage of this year to meet with our Guidance Dept.  

If you were not able to attend, please check out the post below from our Guidance Blog where you can access many of the resources that were passed out during the meeting.

Burlington High School Grade 9 Parent Breakfast: A big thank you to all of the parents who turned out for our first "Breakfast with Guidance." We were happy to provide you with an overview of BHS Guidance with the hope it helped to ease the freshman transition and answer your questions.

We appreciated your positive feedback and are looking forward to keeping you apprised of changes based on your continued input.

One question that came up was about the scholarship points which can be earned over four years and submitted as part of senior scholarship applications. Scholarship points are part of the Adopt-a-Class program which is part of the Burlington Community Scholarship Foundation. Students can begin to earn these points during their freshman year, and events are well publicized throughout the building on flyers and on the daily announcements. The advisor to Adopt a Class is Mr. Mark Sullivan.

Please check out this link from the Burlington Community Scholarship Program which explains Adopt-a-Class in detail.

In addition other information that was distributed is listed below:

Again, thank you for your continued engagement and look forward to working with your children and with you for the next four years.
