BHS Tiger News
Week of February 27, 2022
Belleville High School
Greetings, BHS Families, this is Week #6 of Semester 2. The highlight of the week (from last week) was Thursday’s Pancake Breakfast for Academic Excellence (High Honors)!
We had over 500 students earn between a 3.3333 and 4.9 GPA for Semester 1, and we were thrilled to honor them with breakfast! Students who are on the Honor Roll (3.0-3.3333 GPA) have not been forgotten! They will be acknowledged this week during Tiger Time.
We are so very proud of our students who are being intentional about doing their best, and this INCLUDES students who are making strides with our Tiger Success Institute Intervention Program. The purpose of this program is to guide students in taking advantage of supports like goal setting, tutoring, mentoring, and progress reporting to make improvements and find better success. See below for the visual of this program.
