PSAT/NMSQT - Wednesday, October 16, 2019
Wednesday, October 16th is regular attendance day for Freshmen, Sophomores and Seniors.
Please encourage your student to get a good night's sleep the night before the test and have a healthy breakfast the day of the test.
Make sure, if they do not take the bus, they leave plenty of time to get to school on time because they will not be admitted into testing rooms after the test begins.
If you are unable to get an appointment time at BHS, Harper College offers drop-in FAFSA assistance and will be hosting a number of FAFSA Completion Workshops. These services are available to all BHS seniors, even if the student does not plan to attend Harper. More information here.
Drop-in Counseling Support at Barrington Youth & Family Services:
Do you have a student that is struggling at school? Having a problem with friends? Need someone to talk to? BYFS is located across the street from BHS and offers free drop in counseling. 100% confidential. No appointment necessary. Students may drop in to BYFS on Wednesdays after school from 3:30-5:30pm and can also receive a pass to take the activity bus home if needed.
BHS PTO MEETING
The next PTO meeting is set for 10/14/2019 at 9:15am at the High School. Please arrive early at the visitor entrance, to the left of the main stairs facing Main Street, to allow time to sign in and be escorted by security to the room. Better yet, join the PTO email distribution list and you may R.S.V.P. in advance to expedite the process at security.
