ACADEMIC NEWS

Health Class

Mr. O'Brien and Mrs. Peck's health class have been training in first aid/CPR/AED. Students used stuffed animals to reduce contact.

Mr. Hodges's 10th-12th Grade Algebra II

Mr. Hodges's Algebra II classes used piecewise functions last week to design a brand new roller coaster! All three classes worked together to create one continuous, exciting (and definitely not up to safety codes) ride. The students all did a great job with both the art and math sides of the project and should be proud of what they created together!

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

Subway in Biglerville

We interviewed Subway in Biglerville as another business that hires many BHS students. The Franchisee said they had begun their journey with Subway ten years ago. They convinced the Franchise to visit the area and count the daily traffic to be able to get a Subway in Biglerville. There are currently five students from BHS that work at Subway, and the managers have communicated that they enjoy working with their teen staff. They believe that work ethic leads students to a successful future. They are motivated to teach teen workers the value of having people skills. They are very flexible with their schedules and say they value that teen workers work hard. They understand they come from a long day at school to continue a long day at work. All of their teen worker’s dedication is greatly appreciated.


The only downside they found with teen workers is that they are usually less flexible than adults but they understand that flexibility isn’t always possible. Adults are still responsible for all management of the Subway team. The teen employees are said to provide an especially welcoming environment. Many former employees from BHS moved on to college and trade school and Subway feels that they have helped to prepare them for their future. They also wanted to say that they are very proud when they have students leave to become a part of the military. They are especially grateful when former high school students come back and work in the summer. Overall, they work hard to make a good environment for their students and for their business.


Thank you for hiring our students and supporting our school.
