BHSPA Annual Meeting Wrap-up

The BHSPA held its Annual Meeting jointly with the Middle School Parents Association on May 31st.


2016 - 2017 was a productive year for the BHSPA as we supported a variety of programs, such as Travel Scholarships, third-party training for a new Ambassador Program, Environmental Club's purchase of courtyard chairs and umbrellas, Tenacity Challenge, All Night Grad Party, History Fair, Mentorship Program Lunch, and Eagle Scout Garden Project for the BHS Courtyard. The pie chart shows our funding distribution for this year.


At school, we sponsored several teacher hospitality events under the leadership of Stacy Mortenson and the end of the year lunch is being planned right now. 


To get the support needed from our parent community and keep everyone informed about happenings within the BHSPA, BHS, and Bedford, we beefed up our social media presence.  You may have noticed that we post here on our site frequently, as well as on Facebook and Twitter to better reach many more families.  The BHSPA, too, is proud that our eNews remains a primary source of school information for most BHS families.   


Also, at our Annual Meeting, elections were held and the 2017-2018 Executive Committee was installed:


Co-Presidents:  Michelle Saber & Kerry Rackey
