Class of 2017:
Counselors will be visiting all senior English classes in early October to review the college application process which we presented last spring and in our one-to-one meetings in May and June.  If you need help sooner, please make an appointment with your counselor by going to the counseling secretary to set up a time to meet with him/her.  Mr. Ward (A-D), Ms. Bakker (E-K), Ms. Pal (L-Mel), Ms. D'Amico (Mey-Q), Ms. Walter (R-Z).
Attention Seniors using the Common Application or needing recommendation letters:  
Please do not "invite" your counselor or any teacher electronically without first speaking IN PERSON with the teacher or counselor you wish to invite.
It is common courtesy to make a request for a recommendation face to face before having a message land in their email inbox stating the request.  All teachers and counselors will appreciate this respectful way of asking for their help.  (Your counselor will be happy to help you with this process.)
All students applying to colleges:  Please pay special attention to all the information and instructions under "College Planning" in the menu to the left. 
Thanks so much from the entire BHS Counseling Office!
