WHAT’S HAPPENING AT BERNICE MACNAUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL
Friday, June 15th, 2018
This is a message for all parents of grade 11 students. The school year is coming to a close and with it comes preparation for many end of year events, including graduation. Each year, the graduation ceremony is always followed by a reception for the graduates and their families, and it is traditionally organized by the grade 11 class. In order to provide refreshments and food for this reception, the parents of grade 11 students are kindly asked to make a monetary donation to help cover expenses. It is completely voluntary, with a suggested amount of $20, though any donation would be greatly appreciated. The donation can be paid online through school cash, or brought to the school office. Thank you.
A reminder to any graduating student who has received a scholarship or bursary, including Entrance Scholarships, and would like it recognized in the graduation program needs to submit documentation to Mr. Harris in Guidance by Monday, June 18.
A reminder to graduating students going onto college or university in the Fall that they must make arrangements to have their final transcripts sent by filling out the Pink Transcript Request Form available in the main office. We encourage students to do this before graduation.
The 2018-2019 Student Financial Aid Applications are now available and are posted on the Student Financial Services Website at www.studentaid.gnb.ca
Report cards will be given out on Friday, June 22nd from 9-11am from the homeroom teacher. If you are not able to make this time, please provide your homeroom teacher with a self-addressed stamped envelope.
Any students interested in being part of our Ambassador program, please contact Mrs. Woodworth.
Our adventures begin on the first day of school when our visiting and new international students need us the most. Looking forward to seeing lots of you participate. It is a great way to make connections and support all of the school activities. Have a great summer.
Atlantic Education International brings students aged11-18 to NB from countries around the world (Brazil, Colombia, Chile, China, Germany, Mexico, Spain, Turkey, Vietnam). Students study for varying lengths of time: 12 weeks, a semester, 10 months. During their stay they live with families, who are asked to provide a separate bedroom, three nutritious meals a day, reasonable transportation to and from activities, access to the Internet, and the supervision appropriate for the age and needs of the student living in your home. In return, families are paid a stipend (tax free) of $ 700 a month - and an incredible opportunity to share our Canadian lifestyle and learn about a culture very different from our own. The relationship building lasts a lifetime!
Prom: This year Prom is being held at Royal Oaks Clubhouse. Prom is from 7:30 – 11:30pm and doors will close at 8pm. Students attending Safe Grad after Prom will load the bus between 11 and 11:30pm to head to BMHS. Students are not allowed to drive their own vehicles to Safe Grad.
Safe Grad: Students will arrive at Safe Grad to begin the fun festivities at midnight. Participation in the event earns you ballots to win special prizes as the event comes to a close. Students will have breakfast, receive prizes and head home around 6am. For safety reasons we ask that parents pick up students after the safe grad event is finished as opposed to students driving home themselves.
Students attending both Prom and Safe Grad are asked to drop off their book bag with their change of clothes for Safe Grad to the “French Hallway” rooms 112-117 on Tuesday morning when they come to pick up their gown.
Potential graduates received Prom and Graduation tickets today at their rehearsal. Their last graduation rehearsal will be on THURSDAY, June 21st at the Wesleyan Celebration Center. Students are asked to arrive at 8:45am and check in with their “ROW WRANGLER” and be in their assigned seat by 9am. The rehearsal will end around noon. Students should be in the chapel area of the Wesleyan Celebration Center for 6:30pm.
Grad Gowns can be picked up on Tuesday, June 19th from ROOM 167. Students will need a $20 cash deposit to pick up their gown. All debts/textbooks owing to the school need to be cleared.
BMHS My Device, My Learning Parent Survey
Dear BMHS Parents,
As some of you may have heard, many of our high schools across the province are preparing to offer wireless internet for students to use with personal devices. Our district has named this initiative “My Device, My Learning”. What this means is that students will be able to bring in personal digital devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops to school and can connect them to our wireless internet. This is an exciting learning and educational opportunity for our students and staff.
Please complete the following questions as we gather information to be used in our application process to grant student access to Wi-Fi. Visit the school website and look under news tab to complete the survey. The survey only take a min to complete
