    Senior Day - Monday, May 22nd

    May 22nd 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.

    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 Stacey_lang@bismarckschools.org 

    For more information about the Senior Salute series that supports our graduating seniors, please go to: https://bpsfoundation.com/impact/bps-senior-salute/


    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
      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
