The BHS PTO is well on its way! Thank you to all for the great support! The BHS PTO is looking for volunteers to help us with a project we are calling "Friends of BHS". We are looking to use this as a fundraiser for our newly formed PTO. Individuals and businesses will be able to become sponsors of BHS. Our first big endeavor is to obtain funding for PTO insurance and to become a non-profit organization. After those goals have been reached, funds will be used to help support programs and activities at BHS. Please contact Donna Iacopucci firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
* The BHS PTO is also looking for a few volunteers to help us create the bylaws for our organization. Please contact Colleen Akerman at email@example.com for more information.

Would you like to win $1000?? Would you like to be a featured speaker and deliver the keynote address at Destination College??
This CONTEST is for you! All high school seniors who are college bound can apply. As a high school senior, you are currently experiencing the college planning and application process. The keynote address should be about this experience. Share your strategies, what worked and what you might have done differently. Is there anything you didn't expect? What did you learn that a high school junior should know? Remember that your insight will help the junior class prepare for what's down the road. Your speech may be funny, interesting or informative...hopefully a little bit of all three. Please refrain from a step-by-step to-do list. Your goal is to capture the attention and interest of your listeners with stories and energy. All entries will be judged on content, relevance to target audience, originality, creativity and artistic and technical proficiency. Submit your speech at www.destinationcollege.org. Deadline is Friday, February 8th, 2013. Finalists will be notified in February and the winner will present the speech at Destination College on Saturday, March 16th at Plymouth State University and will also win $1000 scholarship.
