Freshman Parent Breakfast Follow-up

A big thank you to all of the parents who turned out for our first "Breakfast with Guidance." We were happy to provide you with an overview of BHS Guidance with the hope it helped to ease the freshman transition and answer your questions.

We appreciated your positive feedback and are looking forward to keeping you apprised of changes based on your continued input.

One question that came up was about the scholarship points which can be earned over four years and submitted as part of senior scholarship applications. Scholarship points are part of the Adopt-a-Class program which is part of the Burlington Community Scholarship Foundation. Students can begin to earn these points during their freshman year, and events are well publicized throughout the building on flyers and on the daily announcements.  The advisor to Adopt a Class, for all grades, is Mr. Sheldon Bishov.

Please check out this link from the Burlington Community Scholarship Program which explains Adopt-a-Class in detail.

If you have any further questions about the program, please contact Mr. Bishov at the high school.

Another question that came about was in regard to being able to comment on blog posts. We think we fixed that problem, so please feel free to submit a comment and let us know for sure!

Again, thank you for your continued engagement in the goings-on at Burlington High. We look forward to working with your children and with you for the next four years.
