Speaker Event

Together, BHS Librarian Christine Magoon, Bedford Education Foundation (BEF), and the BHSPA are bringing a popular author to Bedford.

 

Val Emmich, actor, singer-songwriter, and author, most well known for his best-selling novel adaptation of the musical "Dear Evan Hansen", will be speaking at BHS and run a writing workshop with our students, thanks to the efforts of BHS librarian Christine Magoon, who requested and was awarded a BEF grant to pay for Val Emmich's presentation to Bedford High School.

 

This full-day visit will center around the theme of being “All of You” and include discussion of the writing process and a songwriting session. This grant brings many interdisciplinary elements to BHS and supports the discussion of the social issues that affect all students.  In addition to the author visit, as part of this grant, the BEF also funded two classroom sets of Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel.

 

 

The BHSPA is happy to support this enrichment event by covering the travel and accommodations portion of Mr. Emmich's engagement.  

 

Details about the visit will be released soon. 

 

Post-Secondary Guide

The BHSPA is pleased to have paid for the printing of the new Post-Secondary Guide written by Alicia Linsey, 

Director of Guidance & Counseling K-12.  

 

This handbook is a general resource for students and their families and features fantastic artwork of BHS students. 

 
Juniors should contact the BHS Guidance Department for a hardcopy. A digital version is available to all BHS students in their Naviance portal. 

Dinner Thank You

THANK YOU, PARENTS & GUARDIANS! Thank you to all for the tremendous help in hosting the BHSPA Teacher Conference Dinner.  As they met parents from 4 to 8 PM, the teachers didn’t have to worry about packing a dinner or running out of energy for those last hours.  

 

Through the great help of many, as evidenced by our thank you list https://goo.gl/kUq57C, BHS teachers had a great quick dinner of various Wegmans’ sandwiches, wraps, salads, veggie sushi and fruit, and were able to grab a cup of coffee and sweets before heading back to their classrooms. We received positive feedback and many, many thanks from the teachers who appreciate your support.

 

The BHSPA would like to thank Wegmans for its generous donation of $200 which helped offset some of the costs.  

 

Thanks again to our great volunteers and donors within the Bedford High School parent community.
