Message from the PA Presidents

Can you believe it is already May?  As a reminder our PA elections are taking place virtually on May 20th.  Please take a look at our positions (click here) and then if you feel you would like to be part of our amazing board we encourage you to fill out the google form (click here) and come to our May 20th meeting where we will be voting in the new slate of members for September.  Many hands make light work, and the more people we have willing to step up and help makes it better for our students, families, and faculty. We can do great thing together.  We encourage people to get involved.

This past week we gave the second SAT to our junior class.  As we did for the first SAT day the PA brought in breakfast from Panera for all our teachers.  These two dates were the only time that most teachers were in the building together and we wanted to thank them for all their hard work this year.  The PA continues to work along the administration helping and raising money where we can.  We thank everyone for their continued donations. Everything gets put to good use. In addition to the breakfasts, a couple of other initiatives the PA helped with this year was the purchasing of a software license used for PTC sign-ups as well as SEL day sign-up. This software will be used throughout the school for this school year as well as next.  We also support with alumni programs like Albertio, Naviance and Turnitin.  We also will be working with administration to hopefully refurbish one of the classrooms on the first floor; this includes redoing the electric, enhancing internet capabilities as well as new furnishing.  

 

Our Freshman Reps have organized a casual meet and greet. Please see below for details.  

 
As always feel free to contact us at PAPresident@bths.edu.  

   

Take care,

Events

Social Justice/ Racial Equity Book Club

May 4, 2021 at 7:00 pm

Our Social Justice/Racial Equity Book Study Group will read  "Minor Feelings" by Cathy Park Hong. This book traces the author's relationship to the English language, to shame and depression, to poetry and female friendship. Minor Feelings forms a portrait of one Asian American psyche-and of a writer's search to both uncover and speak the truth. The Zoom Link will be sent out to all. We hope you will join us!
