(All students) Dear students, the Dream Team will be hosting a Cookie Decoration Competition in the cafeteria after school on Thursday, December 19th. Tickets will cost 3 dollars and all funds will be going to the HOPE scholarship, which helps pay the college tuition of undocumented students at Bard. The grand prize is a $25 gift card.

(All students) This December BHSEC Queens Theater Department will be presenting the Fall Production of The Wolves, written by Sarah DeLappe. There are still 2 performances you can attend: Wednesday, December 11th at 6:30 pm, and Thursday, December 12th at 4:00 pm. Performances will take place in the Black Box Theater (Room 640).

The Wolves is a timely coming of age comedy/drama written by playwright Sarah DeLappe. Nine girls warm-up for their soccer games while they discuss everything and anything - from the Khmer Rouge to college scouts, from immigrant border camps to women's reproductive rights. Watch The Wolves as they are forced to reckon with when who you are clashes with the real world away from the soccer field.

Seating is limited so you will NEED to RESERVE a spot for yourself by signing up on the sign-up sheet on the door of the Black Box Theater.


(All students) Winter Wonderland comes to BHSECQ! Bard DNA is hosting a Winter Fest, where we will be celebrating the upcoming break, as well as getting into the holiday spirit. It is a great opportunity to get together with friends and make gingerbread houses or sing your heart out with karaoke. You will also have the chance to decorate cookies, eat s'mores with hot chocolate, and DIY your own holiday decorations. Last but not least, there will be a winter themed photo booth!

The Winter Fest is Wednesday, December 18th from 4pm to 6pm in the Cafeteria (but come early while supplies last).

Tickets are one for $3 or two tickets for $5. All students are invited.
