BPS Foundation - BHS Senior Salute
Graduating seniors and their families are encouraged to submit group photos from their senior year for use within the Senior Salute features air on West Dakota Fox and KFYR-TV during the month of May. For those that are interested in submitting, please provide your school (BHS, CHS or LHS) along with your photos (submitted by a link or as an attachment) to firstname.lastname@example.org

The year is winding down and graduation is right around the corner! Some things to be aware of:
- You have the opportunity to purchase your student-issued Chromebook for $20. The fee for the Chromebook can be paid via MyPaymentsPlus or with cash/check in the admin office. This must be paid before May 14th so the fee doesn’t affect your test exemption. If you are not interested in purchasing your Chromebook, follow the steps emailed.
- Once you graduate, you will no longer have access to your BPSapps account. This includes all your Google Drive files. Follow these directions emailed to you to transfer your school files to a personal gmail account.
Congratulations and best of luck!
Graduating seniors and students leaving the district will lose access to all Google services using their @bspapps.org email address; this includes Docs, Sites, Calendar, YouTube, Gmail and other services tied to their @bpsapps.org email address.
Students can download their files to a .zip archive or transfer their files to a personal Google account. Get started by logging into either your @bpsapps.org account and select one of the following:
- Download your data
Visit https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout to export and download your data from the Google products you use. Help and more information is available at https://goo.gl/PGKnGK
- Transfer your content
Visit https://takeout.google.com/transfer to copy and transfer your emails and Google Drive files to another Google account. Help and more information is available at https://goo.gl/o8pJTL
Final Transcripts are required by future colleges. This transcript confirms to colleges that you did graduate and what the date of graduate was. Final transcript will be with your diploma.
Donations After Graduation
If you do not want your cap/gown after graduation, please consider donating it back to BHS. These donations would go to our students in need.
After 2008, the gown color changed so we can not take any gowns before that.
