Directory Changes & Opt Outs

In the Fall, a Student Directory is prepared that lists all BHS students in grades 9 - 12. The data is compiled from the information that is on file with the registrar's office, as noted in the parent portal of Aspen. Specifically, the listing will include a student's home address, home phone, guardian/parents' names and a primary email. 

 

If a student resides with both parents at the same location, then the directory will list the student's name, both parents names with their home address and home phone, and the one email that is listed with the school as the primary parent email. If a student has a parent who resides in a different location from the student and primary parent, then the directory will have two separate listings for the student: one line will include the student's home address, home phone, and the primary parent's name and email, and a second, separate line for parent #2's address, home phone, and email.  

 

Parents can choose to change or exclude the data that is listed. Changes and exclusions noted here will be to the directory only and will not impact or update in the registrar's records or Aspen.

 

Use this page to request changes and/or exclusions. (If you do nothing, the data in Aspen will be included in the directory.)  ALL REQUESTS TO CHANGE OR OPT OUT MUST BE SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6.  Each submission is time stamped; if the deadline is missed, the data likely will not be changed.

Note: Please fill out the fields marked with an asterisk.

End of Year Teacher Lunch

Another excellent End of the Year Staff Luncheon is in the books, thanks to the many donations of our BHS parents and guardians, plus a favorite local pediatric group, Patriot Pediatrics.  

 

Hospitality Co-Chair Stacy Mortenson planned the event and had great help from our reliable volunteers.  We have so many other wonderful people to thank, so please check out: http://bit.ly/2MXYwbh.  


It’s remarkable that we have the support of Buccaneer and Champion level donors, which we gratefully acknowledge, yet, we are appreciative of every dollar. Thanks to the generous contributions, we were able to give out 60 raffles, and the staff LOVED it! We are blessed by goodness within our parent community. 


The BHSPA especially would like to thank parent volunteer Bonnie McCulloch for going the extra mile in helping us by putting together the very pretty bags for all of the donated gift cards, supplying the Thank You sheet cake, helping with set up and service, and being our photographer for the lunch. Peruse the photos below. 


We thank MaryAnn Murphy for co-chairing this year with Stacy Mortenson in Hospitality. Next year, Stacy will be helped by incoming Co-Chair Claire Demeo, who is coming back to us after having served as Treasurer a few years ago.  


Thank you, everyone, and have a great summer!

  

All Night Grad Thanks

Thank You from the All Night Graduation Committee

 

The 32nd All Night Graduation Celebration was a huge success! The Class of 2019 had a fantastic time. Months of planning and preparation went into this event, and hundreds of parents/guardians volunteered and donated time and resources to make this event happen. Please join us in thanking all the people, businesses and organizations that supported ANG this year. The full “All Night Graduation Thank You Program” can be viewed at http://bit.ly/2019ANGthanks

Athletics Reminders

Reminders about Fall Sports: Parents/guardians are reminded that students who want to participate in a Fall sport at BHS must register their student via the Aspen parent portal, as soon aspossibleand before tryouts.  Parents/guardians also should confirm that the student has a valid baseline test result and medical record (physical) on file with BHS. 

1) Registration for a sport must be done by the parent/guardian, not the student. Follow these instructions: https://www.bedfordps.org/sites/bedfordps/files/uploads/sports_registration.pdf  Here is the list of sports offered at BHS: https://www.bedfordps.org/athletics/pages/sports-offerings-bhs

2) Baseline test results are valid for two years, so if the student (of any grade) will be trying out for a sport at BHS for the first time in the Fall, a new baseline test must be done at BHS. A new baseline is required also for returning BHS students whose baseline will be older than two years (typically, juniors or students entering their third year of sports at BHS.) 

Here are the remaining dates for baseline testing offered at BHS, in the BHS H-Wing Computer Lab:
  • 6/13: 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
  • 8/15 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
  • 8/16 9:30 am -12:30 pm
  • 8/21  10 am - 1 pm
Lastly, in addition to the registration and baseline test, the student’s health record (last physical) must be on file with the BHS nurse’s office, and the physical’s expiration date should be past the end of the sport season.  Students cannot try out or play a sport without a current health record on file. The school and MIAA take this very serious about these things. Kids have been turned away from a tryout and benched from playing until a valid health record has been delivered to the school, so it’s best to get ahead of this now. 

Parents/guardians, we hope these tips will help your kids be ready for Fall. 

Scholarship

The BHSPA created a named scholarship, our first ever, to be given out at the CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars 54th Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony on May 29, 2019.

 

The BHS Parents Association School Service Scholarship is intended to recognize a BHS graduating student who displays motivation, sincerity, and good citizenship at BHS and has shown commitment to supporting peers. It is important to us that we commend a special student, someone who does not hold an elected, nominated, or selected leadership position in a traditional student organization like Student Government, School Council, or School Committee, yet chooses to do good at the school on his/her/their own. 

 

Congratulations to Aidan Duncan, the 2019 recipient of the BHS Parents Association School Service Scholarship!
