In this presentation, we will discuss the steps that students, counselors, and parents must take to facilitate post-high school planning. Our topics will include college entrance exams, post-high school research, college visiting and college applications.

BHS Club Fair 2020-2021-Get Involved Today!
Under normal circumstances, Democratic Congress would hold an in-person club fair for students to learn about all of the opportunities clubs at BHS have to offer. This year, seeing as life has changed dramatically, we wanted to make sure students were still aware of the opportunities they have, as well as which clubs have an active digital presence.
We decided to adopt a digital format that each student could use at their leisure, exploring all the clubs that this community offers them. From learning about their student government representatives to representing a cause close to their hearts, we hope that this resource will give students an opportunity to learn more about the amazing things that our clubs have to offer.
Please take this opportunity to explore the new BHS Club Fair 2020-2021 page. DEMO would happily accept any new club entries!
