Week 3 - Spring Semester 2022/23

Principal's message:

Happy Friday Coyotes! It was Open House week at The Park, and what a great event it was. The event kicked off with our Pre Open House Principal Welcome and Student Panel. Our student panel was amazing, providing a student perspective of our wonderful programs and the welcoming environment that is BPHS. I was able to give parents and students a look at some of our new programs, and unveil one of the biggest game-changers for college-bound students in high school education.

Building off our existing Early College Program, BPHS has designed a new Early College Academy Program which will roll out this coming year. Our students will be able to take college undergrad courses directly embedded in the school day. We are very excited to begin offering more of these courses to allow our students the ability to complete a year or two of their college undergrad work before starting college. No longer will they be reliant on passing an AP test to get the college credit in the subject area; the Academy Program enrolls students in the college course itself, while at the same time providing support for them while taking the course. All this while concurrently enrolled to receive their high school graduation requirement.

One course = college AND high school credit. True dual enrollment!

Congratulations BPHS 2022/23 Certificated and Classified Employees of the Year. French teacher extraordinaire Kimiko Mann and custodial connoisseur Michael Chesmore! Both are extremely dedicated professionals and very deserving of this recognition. We are so proud of Kimiko and Mike!

Parents, students, staff: It's that time of year where we solicit your feedback on our school and district! This is essential data for us which helps drive decision making and funding. Please take a few minutes, click on the appropriate flyer, and give us your feedback!

If you have any questions on the new Academy program, don't hesitate to come see me. Bring a friend and spread the word. It is the future of Early College!

Have a great weekend Coyotes!

Student Learning Outcomes
The purpose of SLOs are to increased student awareness of their own learning

Explicitly-stated learning goals give students a way to think and talk about what they have learned. They make it easier for students to “know what they know” and give students a language to communicate what they know to others. Such awareness is considered central to learning that lasts.
Have a Great Week Coyotes!
