BHS Introduces AP Capstone Program

Bellevue High School is one of more than 300 schools worldwide to implement AP Capstone-an innovative diploma program that allows students to develop the skills that matter most for their future college and career success: research, collaboration, and communication. The AP Capstone program represents a significant shift from content to skills. The program includes a two-course sequence: AP Capstone 1 (AP Seminar) and AP Capstone 2 (AP Research).

Additional information about the AP Capstone program may be found HERE on the school website.

Help Fill the BHS Food Cupboard!

It’s time to replenish the supply the BHS Food Cupboard for students in orange

The students in need are not always the people you would expect.  Please consider donating non-perishable food items like granola bars when you stock up your own pantry.  A bag of apples or oranges will go quick so feel free to bring them in even if they are perishable.  There are a number of students from all members of our community that stop in for a quick snack in the morning, between classes or after school before an activity.  Please bring your donations to the Activities Office.

Thank you from the school counselors, clinic, school secretaries, main office Support Fund, PTSA and most of all the kids.

Thank you BHS Community for joining the Soup Line again this year!  It’s always so heartwarming to see our school come together for such a good cause and to see teenagers helping other teenagers.  We all know that one person can make a difference but it’s amazing what we can all do together.
         A special thank you to our soup donors-Kirsten Wlaschin and Ivar’s for the Ivar’s
Clam Chowder and Dr. Sharon Kelly, Eastside Dermatology, for the Chicken Noodle an Tomato Soups-we truly appreciate your generosity.
         A huge thank you to Brenda Conrad, my partner in hosting this event every year since the start-we couldn’t have done it without you all these years!  Brenda will be the new vice principal at Woodinville High School next year-our loss is definitely Woodinville’s gain.  Her dedication to our students                        and school over the past 20 years has been tremendous.
We raised $8,624.96 this year-a new all-time record for S4S!!!  In the 11 years we have held this event, our amazing BHS Community has raised a grand total of $56,627.83 for New Horizons that services homeless teenagers in the Seattle area.
And to all of you that attended our event and donated to New Horizons – THANK YOU!
The Soup4Simpson Committee & Kathy Adams, S4S Advisor
