Message from the PA Presidents

October 18, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

School is now in full swing; everyone that chose blended learning has now been in school a few times.  Our fully remote learners continue on as they have since the beginning.  We hope everyone has settled in and are enjoying their classes.

PA Executive Board elections are Thursday, October 22nd, virtual at 6:30pm.  At this meeting we will be holding elections for all positions on the Executive board as well as the SLT.  Please see the message below from the Nominating Committee on how the virtual election will be conducted.  We will be sending a link for the meeting out as soon as we receive it from administration.

A couple of items to relay to everyone regarding attendance.  If you or your child feel they have erroneously been marked absent they need to contact their teacher, if after discussion the teacher agrees that the absence was in error the teacher needs to make the correction with Ms. Cuesta, who is in charge of attendance.

Cameras on..... although it isn't mandatory it is encouraged that students have their cameras on during lessons.  It will make the experience more interactive for everyone.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday, October 22nd at 6:30 for our virtual PA meeting.  

As always, feel free to reach out to us at PApresident@bths.edu


Stay well!


Lisa Sullivan and Cindy Kue 

BTHS PA Co-Presidents
