Volunteer Thank You

The City of Bryan recognized volunteers at a reception held December 16 at the Phillips Event Center. Students from Bryan Collegiate were honored for their service in Teen Court and the Youth Advisory Commission. Students in the Teen Court program were recognized for volunteering their time to serve as attorneys and jury members for a diversion program that sets the punishment for juvenile offenders. Members of the Youth Advisory Committee were honored for their dedication to meeting with adults to offer suggestions and criticisms of issues that affect teens in this area.

Thank You PTSO!

After much hard work fundraising, PTSO purchased a die cut machine for the campus! The faculty and staff at BCHS is grateful to all who contributed time and money!!

Debate Team

Our first meeting will be Monday, January 11th, 2016. Come on out! We work hard and play hard! (Evidence of playing hard at our holiday party below. No evidence of working hard because those pictures are boring.)

National Honor Society News

The BCHS chapter of the National Honor Society had a busy December.

We hosted a blood drive on December 11th. We had 51 students and faculty sign up for appointments and collected 38 units of blood. Thank you to everyone who tried to donate. We will be hosting two additional blood drives in the spring if you are interested in donating.

On December 13th we hosted an aid station at mile 10.5 of the BCS Marathon. It was a very cold and rainy morning and 25 of our students showed up at 6:30 am with a smile and willing to work. Students were responsible for setting up tables, filling cups with water and gatorade in preparation for runners, and finally cheering on the runners while giving out drinks.


Hey Panther Soccer Fans!

Come out and support your BCFC soccer team this month!

After we suffered a defeat against the talented Rudder Rangers on January 2, our record is now 3-1, and we’re looking to bounce back against Allen Academy (1/18/16) and Brazos Christian (1/26/16). Both games will be at 6:00pm and are located on those schools’ campuses.

Arrive early, yell loudly, and let’s show the world that BCFC pride is alive and well!

Your BCFC Coaches,

Mrs. Wilde and Mr. Persyn
