BCGT Member Only Event – Navigating BHS as an Extended Student 

Tuesday, February 5th   Cancelled due to weather

Audience: Current 8th Graders and Parents/Guardians

Do you have an 8th grader taking extended classes who has questions like, “Should I take AP World History? What science classes should I take in high school?” For answers to these questions and more, join us for a Member Only event for 8th grade students and their families. A panel of current BHS extended students will provide information and answer questions ranging from class selection to balancing homework and activities. This event is separate from the BHS transition night, because we’ll focus solely on choices and questions of extended students. Past attendees have found this event very helpful and you won’t want to miss. Registration is required.
