(All Students) Students interested in joining the SLT still have time to submit their statements! The deadline has been extended. Students should submit their statements to Renae Plummer by the end of the week (Friday at 4pm). This is particularly important for 9th graders as we’d love to have your grade represented!

(All students) CALL FOR ART for Black Lives Matter Day of Action!
Black Lives Matter day of action takes place every year at BHSEC Queens. It is a day dedicated to educating students and professors about history, racial equality, and social justice through workshops and presentations. This year, BLM day of action will take place on Tuesday, January 28th, 2020.
As usual, the Black Lives Matter day of action committee is organizing the annual art contest for BLM day of action. We are looking for a T-shirt design. The design must have the words "Black Lives Matter." You are welcome but not limited to include the phrases "at school," "Day of Action 2019," and "BHSEC Queens." The logo for the shirt should be in one color and clear enough to print onto black T-shirts. New York themes are encouraged. Submissions can include any type of 2D media (drawings, paintings, prints) relating to the topic of Black Lives Matter. The winning artist will receive a T-shirt with their art on it, as well as publicity, since this artwork will be printed on T-shirts, pins, stickers, and promotional posters for the important day. We invite you all to participate! All submissions should be sent as a PDF or easily downloadable file by Nov 15th and emailed to email@example.com
Also, if art is not your thing but you would like to still be involved in the organizing and planning of the day, please come to our meetings on Fridays after school in room 624. You can email Dr. K at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can be added to the email list.
(Year 1 Students) The official CTO process starts next semester when you will be paired with a CTO advisor but until then, I wanted to make you aware of what's written there and the ways in which you can get involved in the CTO process early!
1. Save the Date! Year One Student and Family CTO Kick-Off - Wednesday, November 11th - 6:00-7:30 in the auditorium.
2. Check out the Calendar for Upcoming Fall College Rep Visits for Y1's and Y2's or see the calendar outside the CTO. Year Ones' are STRONGLY encouraged to attend these visits in their free periods! All visits take place in the College Transfer Office in the Back of the Library (it's bigger than it looks and we have lollipops). These are a GREAT way to get a head start on the admissions process!
4. Sign up for Text Messages from the CTO: Class of 2021 (Y1) Students and Parents/Guardians - this is the BEST way to stop on top of CTO related announcements!
5. Finally, I can always use help in the CTO sorting through materials, putting up posters and updating records. Stop by if you are interested! Must be detail-oriented and be able to commit to two periods a week.
You can always find these links in my emails at the bottom!
(All Students) Tracy Pham is hosting a Feminine Hygiene Product Drive in the front tables where students can make monetary donations or donate unopened feminine hygiene products. The purpose of this drive is to raise awareness of period poverty and to destroy the stigma associated with periods. I partnered up with Homes For The Homeless (a homeless shelter in Manhattan) and all of the donations will be given to them. I thought this would be a great way for students at Bard to support a good cause! The drive is going to be taking place next Friday after school.
(Y1 and Y2 Students) Hello Year 1s and Year 2s! If you were selected to be a Peer Mentor in the Bard DNA Peer Mentoring Program and did not attend Training on October 15th, you must attend training on Friday, October 18th from 3:45pm-4:30pm in room 721. Get excited!
