June 16th, 2020 - Student Council Presents:

Welcome to BMHS.mp4

June 12th, 2020

Grade 6 Orientation Presentation (Can also be found on the "School Information" tab, above)

May 30, 2020

Dear Students and Parents,

BMHS Course Registrations for 2020-2021 will be available online using the Student Portal in Powerschool from June 3rd-June 10th. Using this online process students will log on and request their courses as they have done in the computer lab for the past few years. Using these course requests our school team will then schedule students into their classes.
If you do not remember your Powerschool login info please email a request to bmhs@tcrce.ca
All students will receive their schedule at the beginning of the school year and will have the opportunity to make necessary changes as per usual.
We understand that there may be challenges to selecting courses online. If internet access is limited, or If students are feeling overwhelmed and are not comfortable selecting courses online at this time, this is ok!
Students who do not select courses will be placed in core grade level subjects required for graduation. We will connect with students at the beginning of the school year to make changes if necessary, and to add additional classes to their schedules.
Please note that course registrations will be open for the allotted dates only, and will close for the summer after June 10. We will revisit student course requests and course changes at the beginning of the school year.
To select your courses online through Powerschool please follow the process below:
1. Log in to the Student Portal In Powerschool
2. Click on Class Registrations
3. Select courses by following the instructions provided at the top of each category.
* At the top of each course category, there are specific instructions for course selections.
* The red exclamation points mean that students must select at least one course from these categories (English, Math, and Alternates).
4. Make sure you click Submit at the bottom of the screen
* To see a list of courses you have already completed, go to View Grad Progress
For a list of course descriptions and graduation requirements click on the Guidance Link/ Student Resources and scroll down to the bottom of the page to access this information.
Grade 9s- We know this is all new for our Grade 9 students. We generally have class presentations to explain this process, therefore we will be hosting a google meets info session on course selections/graduation requirements on June 2nd at 2pm. A link to join the meet will be added to the Grade 9 English google classroom. We will have an online presentation followed by a question/answer period.
If you are not able to attend during this time the presentation will be posted for later viewing.
Grade 9 Math recommendation letters- A variety of math courses are offered at the senior high level. Recommendation letters are scheduled to be sent out on Monday June 1st. Students are asked to follow their grade 10 math recommendation at this time. If there are concerns regarding this recommendation, we will have meetings with students, teachers, and parents at the beginning of the school year to explore the most suitable math 10 option for the student, based on prior learning and post-secondary plans. More information on this process to come at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.

Communication to Parents/Guardians 10-12

As per earlier communications, the Parent Portal will be open for viewing starting today May 14th and will be open until late in the day May 17th for you to view your child’s grade up to and including March 13th. This is their Interim Grade, up to and including March 13th only. Between March 13th and June 5th, all students are encouraged to engage and have the opportunity to continue to grow and succeed in their learning. Teachers will continue to record evidence of learning in PowerSchool. Any assessment after March 13th will provide students with the opportunity to improve their interim grade.

The June final report card will include a percentage grade that is not lower than the Interim Grade. It is important to remember that the grade you will see in the portal is progress up to, and including March 13, all evidence of learning from after that date will be recorded in their June report card.

If your child is NOT on track to achieve their current credit or to graduate, the school has already been in contact with you will to discuss support options.

The PowerSchool mobile app will not allow students/parents to see the percentage grade.

The Portal login page is located here:

Shelburne County Covid-19 Resources

Our Schools Plus team has put together a list of Shelburne County resources to provide support for students and families. Names and contact information of resources regarding Community supports, Mental Health services, Food security, transportation assistance, and more, can be accessed by clicking the link below the announcements section. Please stay safe, take care of yourselves, reach out and know that help is available during this challenging time.

Drop Off Loop

We once again need to remind parents that when dropping of students please use the drop off loop.  The staff parking lot is not for this purpose and creates some unsafe situations.  

Parent Portal Information

Some parents who are using the power school app on their phones may notice a change. The app no longer shows the student’s mark like it has in the past. If you wish see your student’s mark you can login to parent portal via the TCRCE website. On top right hand side of the website there is a parent portal link, this will take you to a login page. The same login information used for the app can also be used for the website. The app is still great for keeping track of real time attendance, but the website has more details regarding grades. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Michelle at 902-637-4310
