Prom 2014 Information and Eligibility:
As you are aware, attending school dances is a privilege. In order to earn this privilege, students must be in “good standing” with the school in terms of grades, attendance, and behavior. The Good Standing Program recognizes students who make positive choices while attending BHS. For students to be in good standing they must meet the following criteria each month:
No more than one unexcused absence during the month.
No more than one unexcused tardy to school during the month.
No more than one discipline referral during the month.
No out of school suspensions during the month.
No obligation owed to the school (i.e. financial, material, or detentions).
Not failing more than one class per marking period.
In order to attend Prom 2014, students must be in Good Standing 4 of the first 7 months of school AND the month of March. The 4 months do not have to be consecutive. Prom 2014 is scheduled for April 26, 2014 at the Holiday Inn in Frederick, Maryland. If you child is planning to attend, please discuss the importance of making responsible choices to abstain from alcohol and drugs, as well as practicing safe and defensive driving.
For all other school dances, students must be in Good Standing for the month prior to the dance.
Again, this is a monthly incentive program; therefore, the start of each month marks a fresh start for students. Drawings are held each month for prizes such as free tickets to school events, driving school vouchers, bowling, snow tubing, movies, restaurants, and much more. Students will be reminded throughout the school year about Good Standing, and we expect students to know the criteria for being in Good Standing. We ask that parents encourage their child to participate in this program to earn privileges to attend school dances and opportunities to win prizes.
