BHS Community Conversation

BHS Community Book Conversation: At What Cost?


Bedford High School families are invited to a free presentation and book discussion on April 24th at 7 pm  in the BHS LGI Room (2nd floor). The School Administration will share its Challenge Success survey results and view them through the lens of Dr. David Gleason's book "At What Cost?". The Challenge Success work combines perfectly with the content and themes from the book. The author Dr. David Gleason will be present for Q&A during the second half of the program. Even if you are unable to read the book, we do think the conversation and presentation will be worthwhile.  

There is no charge. Pre-registration is requested (to determine the seating needs) via this Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/at-what-cost-book-discussion-and-challenge-success-survey-results-tickets-59977868419. However, walk-ins are welcome. Join us! 

Mid-year Meeting

Thursday, April 11, 2019: 

The BHSPA will hold its annual mid-year meeting jointly with the Middle School Parent Association (MSPA) at 7 pm in the JGMS LIBRARY located at 99 McMahon Rd., Bedford. 

 

It's a joint meeting because eighth grade parents and guardians will become BHSPA members shortly and are permitted by our bylaws to vote and even run in our May election. This is true for Hanscom Middle School parents too!

 

On 4/11, we will review of the state of each association and plan for the upcoming elections. Information will be given about the various board positions and committees. We welcome your involvement!  If you are interested in any of the open positions, please send an email to the applicable PTO: the BHSPA is at bhsbucsparents@gmail.com and the MSPA is at jgmsparents@gmail.com.

 

SPECIFIC TO THE BHSPA:  Click here to see a sampling of things we have done recently.  Check out this website for more information about our school.  For the upcoming school year, the following BHSPA positions are open: Co-President, Co-Vice President, Co-Chair for Hospitality, and all Committees need more members.  Contact us at bhsbucsparents@gmail.com to get more information and/or throw your name in the hat to run for a position.

      

Speaker Event

Together, BHS Librarian Christine Magoon, Bedford Education Foundation (BEF), and the BHSPA are bringing a popular author to BHS on Friday, April 5, 2019. 

 

Val Emmich, actor, singer-songwriter, and author (http://valemmich.com/books/), 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.

 

Mr. Emmich's first performance will be at 9 am in BHS for students.  Afterwards, he will run a Writer's Workshop, followed by one more performance. 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. 

Fashion Show Thanks
