Volunteer Opportunity


Tiger Community Connections


Do you have any time during the school day where you can help out at BGHS? We are looking for community and parent mentors to volunteer time in our school halls to encourage positive behavior and make student connections. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.


What you would do:


  • Walk halls during passing times and lunches

  • Escort students to class

  • Positive interactions - NO discipline

  • Encourage proper mask wearing

  • Give out RRE Cards - Caught doing something good!

  • Encourage smooth hallway passing


If you are interested in helping out, you need to be a volunteer. In order to be cleared to volunteer, fill out the online volunteer application (license and background check) and the proof of vaccination form. The time commitment is up to you.

Social/Emotional Tips

Deep Breathing: Why Do It?

If you have ever felt frustrated by being told to just “take a deep breath” when you are feeling angry or anxious, you aren’t alone. It’s difficult to heed this advice when, in the moment, the mind and body are distracted or dysregulated. The adage of “just breathe” has been around for a very long time, though it seems the science of how deep breathing works is not information that many of us are aware of.


  • Find a comfortable seat in an environment where you feel safe.
  • When you feel ready, begin to relax the muscles in and around your forehead, jaw, and shoulders.
  • Take a deep breath in through your nose for a count of three – two – one.
  • Pause at the top, and then when you’re ready, exhale through your mouth for a count of three – two – one.
  • Pause at the bottom, and then repeat this pattern for as many times as you’d like.
  • If the mind wanders, as it will, just notice and then gently invite it back to the breath.
  • As you practice, feel free to lengthen or shorten the number of seconds you inhale, exhale, or pause the breath.
  • Notice if you feel anything changing in the mind or body.
