MAKE THE GRADE WITH SCHOOL BREAKFAST

Big image

Children who eat breakfast before school start the day ready to learn as is reflected in higher test scores and better classroom behavior. However only half of the children who eat lunch at school also eat school breakfast, according to the Food Research and Action Council.


To garner increased participation in the National School Breakfast Program, the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) is encouraging schools across the state to recognize National School Breakfast Week. Slated for March 2-6, 2015, National School Breakfast Week is a weeklong celebration aimed at increasing awareness of the School Breakfast Program among students and parents.


The 2015 theme, “Make the Grade with School Breakfast,” reminds everyone in the school community – parents, students, administrators – that a healthy school breakfast sets students up for a day of learning and academic success.

JUNIORS - CLASS OF 2016

Save the Date - Tuesday, April 28, 2015

All 11th grade students will take the ACT Plus Writing at BHS during the school day. The Alabama State Department of Education is requiring that all 11th grade students in the state of Alabama take the ACT on the selected date. Students will not be required to pay a fee for the ACT given on April 28th.


Registration will also take place prior to the actual test date at BHS, so there is no need to register online. Please keep in mind that the April 28th test date will not appear on the ACT website because this date has been selected specifically for 11th grade students in the state of Alabama.


Students will receive more information regarding the April 28th test date as we get closer to that time. A username and password for online ACT test prep will be provided to all current eleventh graders prior to the ACT test in April.


ACT study packets can be picked up in the guidance office.


The make-up date for the ACT Plus Writing assessment will be Tuesday, May 12, 2015.


Counselor Contacts: Mrs. Dee Gordon, Mr. Dan Schwanke, Mrs. Stephanie Wheeler


ACT Results - Students can create an account at www.actstudent.org. If a student has an existing account, he/she can log in to the account to check the state ACT testing scores. If you have questions, please e-mail ACT-WebAccount@act.org.

2014-15 Madison County Schools' Testing Schedule, All Grade Levels.

Big image

Parents, or individuals acting in that capacity, are responsible for seeing that each student under his/her care and control follows school system policy and local school rules and regulations. It is also the responsibility of parents to know such policies, rules and regulations.


Car Riders

Students are NOT allowed to walk to Winchester Road to get in a car after school. ALL cars must pull onto campus to safely pick up car riders. Students who do not follow this rule will be suspended, per Mr. Markham. Thank you for helping us keep our students safe.


Outside Food

Please remember that it is Buckhorn High School's Policy to NOT allow any outside food to be delivered to the school during regular school hours. (This policy does not apply to a 'brown bag' lunch that is prepared at home and brought to school by the student).


Checking Student Out of School

It is Buckhorn High School's policy to NOT allow student check-outs after 3:15 p.m.

Only custodial parent(s) will be allowed to check a student out of school, unless the custodial parent(s) has specifically designated someone else to check the student out of school. School officials will keep accurate records as to whom, what time, and for what reason students are checked out of school. [MCBOE 2014-2015 Code of Conduct, page 21 of 32, Approved July 10, 2014]


Student Publications

The Board of Education authorizes school officials to allow students to have student sponsored publications within the school, and expects the administration to monitor such publications to the extent that disruptions do not result from the contents. Student publications are subject to and will be expected to meet standards associated with responsible journalism. The principal and student publication sponsor are responsible for the content of such publications.


Student publications not approved by the Principal are not allowed, and the Principal shall not allow distribution of publications without prior approval. A certified person shall be appointed to be responsible for supervising student publications, and shall report directly to the Principal in the production of such publications. [Madison County Board of Education 2014-2015 Code of Conduct, page 5 of 32, Approved July 10, 2014]


Media Coverage of School Events

Occasionally local news media visit schools in Madison County to do special reports or follow up on certain news events. As a part of their coverage they often film certain aspects of the school.


It is the principal’s decision whether to allow news media to come into the schools and cover certain events. Extra precautions are taken when the media is covering a sensitive topic or event that might have a negative impact on the school, staff and students.


Parents who have concerns about their child possibly being filmed or photographed by the media should contact the principal. Principals will make every effort to accommodate the wishes of the parent, but it should be understood that it is very difficult to foresee every possible situation that might occur from media coverage of the schools and school events. [Madison County Board of Education 2014-2015 Code of Conduct, page 5 of 32, Approved July 10, 2014]
