Principal's Message

Dear Boulder High School Community,

As we are now a full week into May, our final month of the 2021–22 school year, I cannot help but think about this being my final Principal’s Corner. As I reflect on my past seven years as principal, I will definitely miss the many relationships built with this community, student body, and staff. We were able to make great strides, and for that, I am truly grateful. Although we still have about two weeks of the school year left, I want to offer a heartfelt thank you to the entire Boulder High School community for your unwavering support. Through the good and bad times, there was never any doubt that you would stand shoulder to shoulder with BHS and our incredible student body. You are the reason this is an exceptional place.

Graduating Class of 2022

As we approach the end of the year—and our commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 21—this is undoubtedly a joyful time for our graduates and their families. Graduation ceremonies are a cause for celebration and can represent some of the happiest moments in our lives. But with poor decision-making, graduation parties can bring unnecessary risk and danger to what should be a positive time. It is critical that all stakeholders understand the dangerous realities that drugs and alcohol can mean to any gathering. We must commit to staying safe, being responsible, and spreading the word. For some students, there is an unfortunate belief that graduation parties are a time where the rules and laws do not apply, and things like drug and alcohol use is acceptable, thereby losing sight of the very real consequences that can occur. Some adults may also let certain things slide and feel that some consumption of alcohol is not that big of a deal, failing to realize the message that this can send. Fortunately, we have dedicated parents who are willing to partner with the school to ensure that this graduation season is safe and that students and families are making the decision and commitment to celebrate in an alcohol- and drug-free zone.  

Credit Recovery/Extended School Day

During the month of May, BHS is offering credit recovery for any student who needs to make up a failing grade or no grade (NG) earned during the pandemic. Ms. Ellen Latta, one of our great tutors, will be running these credit recovery sessions every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 to 5:30 pm. If you need to make up any failing grades, please contact your counselor to get set up. 

Finals Schedule 

For your convenience, I have included the link to the May 2022 Finals Schedule. Now is the time to take advantage of the Advisory periods to ensure you are at your best for exams. If you have questions about finals, or anything else pertaining to your coursework, please don’t hesitate to contact your teachers or counselor.

Thank you once again for your dedicated partnership and commitment to Boulder High School. Let’s make it a great month.

Sincerely,


James A. Hill, EdD
