PSAT Test Day
PSAT/NMSQT Day will be held on Wednesday, October 13th at BBHHS. We will run an adjusted bell schedule with students in grades 9-11 being dismissed at the conclusion of the testing session with parent permission. Seniors will be excused from school this day in order to complete a college visitation day or to setup their own career shadowing experience. A practice study guide has been shared with your child and additional preparation resources specifically linked to your students previous performance on the PSAT can be found on the Khan Academy website for FREE!

Please complete the early dismissal permission form (a printed copy was distributed to your child earlier this week) that will provide your child permission to be dismissed from school early on Wednesday, October 13th. This form is to be submitted to your child's Colony Period teacher. If your child attend's CVCC they should submit their form directly to Mrs. Tamulewicz in the Assistant Principal's Office. Students will not be permitted to leave at the early distribution release time unless the permission form is submitted.

CVCC Sophmore Visitation and Success Stories
We are proud to have a strong partnership with the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center (CVCC) and the ability to offer BBHHS students access to their outstanding career & technical programs. In order to help all BBHHS students learn more about the opportunities at CVCC all students currently in the 10th grade will be invited to attend a visitation day to CVCC on Tuesday, November 9th. This is a field trip that will give sophomore students the opportunity to visit the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center and observe the different career technical programs that are offered.

Students attending the field trip will leave the high school on 11/9 at 11:30AM, and return at approximately 1:45PM. All attendees must ride the bus to and from the career center. If you would like your student to forgo this opportunity and remain in the school building, please click here to complete the district opt out form by TUESDAY, OCTOBER 26TH. 

Recently two BBHHS community members were highlighted by CVCC for their success within CVCC programs. Linked below are two articles shared via CVCC. The Alumni Spotlight shines on BBHHS and CVCC graduate Matthew Duplaga and the Student Connection introduces us to current BBHHS student Jason Still.
