As we head into October, I continue to be impressed by the entire Boulder High School community’s unquestionable strength and character. Like many schools and organizations on the COVID-19 pandemic’s front lines, I feel humbled by the outpouring of support we have received. The messages of gratitude, acts of generosity, and words of encouragement are powerful affirmations for our team of dedicated teachers, paras, clerical staff, custodians, administrators, and volunteers. For us, this positive energy has a direct correlation to ensuring that the needs of our students, all students, are met. Remember to find time to take care of yourself, both mentally and physically. Allow yourself flexibility and be flexible and patient with others. We all need this as we continue to battle COVID-19.
We know so much is changing, and information is coming out at a rapid pace. As part of Phase 2+, we have currently welcomed back our students in the Intensive Learning Center (ILC), and we will do the same with our Newcomers program beginning tomorrow, October 6. Later this month, we are preparing to welcome more students back to in-person learning. Nothing is more important than ensuring our students’ and staff’s health and safety, so we will continue to lean on the health department’s recommendations, adhering to any guidelines set forth, as we prepare for this transition.
PAC Fall Fundraiser
The start of October also means the beginning of the Fall Drive for Funds at BHS. The Fall Drive for Funds is the Parent Advisory Council’s (PAC) primary fundraiser to support our faculty and students by providing funding for classroom materials, technology, and other activities. Your generous contribution will make a difference as we continue to find innovative ways to educate our students, especially during these unprecedented times. I also would like to thank everyone who has already donated. The grant committee recommends a $174 donation, which is, on average, a dollar for each school day. Obviously, any amount helps, and we are grateful for whatever we receive. Donate online at BHS PAC Fund or by check made payable to BHS PAC (mail to BHS PAC, 1604 Arapahoe, Boulder, CO 80302). You can find a list of prior year’s grants here. Thank you in advance for your support, involvement, and partnership in Boulder High School. Because of your commitment, our students will continue to strive!
National Merit Semi-Finalists
Congratulations to Boulder High School’s National Merit Semifinalists!
Finally, I know that trying to navigate life in the midst of COVID-19 has sparked fear, frustration, and anxiety in some. Please know that our team, more than ever, has focused much of our energy on addressing the challenges associated with COVID-19, carefully looking at all aspects, learning and rethinking our approaches when necessary. We will continue to keep you updated as new information is available or current situations change. You can always visit our BHS school website and the BVSD district website for information as well. Like always, please reach out to me or any administrator with questions or concerns you may have. Thank you for your continued support.
