PLEASE HELP CONTINUE THE TRADITION: Will you be a chaperone at the BHS Post Graduation (all-night) Party?  Its tradition for the parents of underclassmen to chaperone the party for our graduating seniors.  We are looking for men to help with the sumo wrestling on all 3 shifts - shift 1 (10 pm - midnight on Sunday June 8), shift 2 (midnight - 3 am on Mon June 9), shift 3 (3am - 5am on Mon June 9) We also have a few spots avail for either men or women at other activities for shift 3.  You don't need to have a child in the high school, any adult that does not have a senior at the party is welcome.  This is a great way to "pay it forward."  Help us this year and when your child graduates, the parents of underclassmen will be there for you!  To volunteer, or if you have any questions, please contact Michele Shields at or 781-270-5142.

Our Technology Advisory Committee has developed a short parent survey for parents. We would appreciate if parents took a few minutes to provide some feedback on our 1:1 Technology Initiative.  Here is the link to the survey.
