Team 2020 Vision

Our Note To You
The theme for all my messages these days seems to be the same, but it’s still true: we miss you, we miss our kids!! We know that the social distancing is for the best, but it does bring about some obstacles and some unknowns – especially for those of us in the senior year. For that reason, we are sending out a newsletter this week (and probably a few more in the weeks ahead) that the other Teams will not be sending. Normally we try to keep our large-group communications consistent across the grade levels, but please be aware that you will be receiving messages from us more frequently than other Teams as we address questions and respond to changing social situations that impact senior year. With that said, two questions that are on the mind of everyone these days are 1) will we get our caps and gowns and 2) what is the plan for commencement. Please read below for more information about these items.
Thank you, students and parents, for the commitment to personal best. Seniors DO still have work to do for their classes, and they have been logging onto Schoology and submitting work every week. New assignments will end on May 15th, and students will have until May 22nd to get everything submitted. One of our students recently emailed me, “Who knew that quarantine would cure senioritis?” And it’s pretty true! Students have done a fabulous job getting work turned in, and parents have been very responsive when we have reached out with reminders. Only a few more days to go – literally! – until senior classes are in the rearview mirror, so keep up the great work.
In the meantime, give your kids a hug from us! Tell them that we are all in this together and that their Team is working behind the scenes for them every day and they are NOT forgotten. Encourage them to reach out to each other and to us, and above all, to keep their sights set on the future.

BHS Local Scholarships
Seniors who have been selected as a recipient of any of the BHS Local Scholarships will be notified via Schoology next week by Mrs. Martin.
Bye Bye Bulldog
In order to give you a chance to clear up any technical glitches and fix your video if you filmed it vertically instead of horizontally, we will continue to accept Bye Bye Bulldog videos until Sunday.
If you are joining on a mobile device, you will need the access code: 3G4F-NZZ8-BWF4S. Also on mobile, if you get an error that says “unable to retrieve your feed”, you can still click albums at the bottom of the screen and add your video. It is recommended that you are connected to a WiFi network when uploading.
