    Senior Day - Monday, May 23rd

    May 23rd is Senior Day, when all the seniors will dress in their caps and gowns, load up in buses, and go to our feeder schools (elementary and Wachter) and parade through the schools. We then come back to BHS for lunch provided by Josten’s. Mr. Wisthoff meets with them and gives them graduation information. After lunch, these seniors will take a survey and turn in their Chromebook, and then they are excused for the remainder of the day.

    The year is winding down and graduation is right around the corner! Some things to be aware of:

    1. 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.
    2. 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!

    Final Transcripts
    Final Transcripts are required by future colleges. This transcript confirms to colleges that you did graduate and what the date of graduate was.

    When your final decision for college is decided please see Mrs. Schmidt in Student Services to request this be done the week after graduation.

    There is a $2.00 processing fee that accompanies that request.

    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:

    1. Download your data
