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. 

Simon Says

The BHSPA was happy to pay for the appearance of Brendan Fitzpatrick, the host of some rousing, fun games of Simon Says, during Community Day at BHS on Wednesday, November 21, 2018.  Lots of laughs had by all! 

In an email to parents and guardians from Mrs. Galante at the end of Community Day, she wrote that  “Simon Says . . . was the hit of the day. What a treat watching hundreds of students take part in such a nostalgic game. It is important for us to remember that downtime is important for our kids.  Today was an opportunity to build our community outside of the classroom walls. Mission accomplished.”

Challenge Success Launch at BHS

Join Jon Kleinman of Challenge Success on November 6th at 6:30  in the evening at the Bedford High School Auditorium for a hallmark presentation.  In an effort to foster a common purpose and vision for our students and children, it is important that we hear the same message and start having an honest conversation about the stress levels and overloaded schedules of our students and children.  

 

This is an important presentation for all parents and guardians with children of all ages.  All parents, guardians, community members, staff and faculty are welcome to attend the evening presentation.  Helping our students find balance, wellness and joy takes a village. 

 

The Bedford High School Faculty will hear the same presentation earlier that day as part of their professional development series.      

 

BHS is a new Partner School in the Challenge Success School Program. Challenge Success will engage our school and larger Bedford community in redefining success for kids. Through the program, BHS will work with a Challenge Success team to implement policies and practices to improve student well-being and promote academic engagement.  The November 6th presentation will serve as the launch of Challenge Success at BHS.
