DSC_0111It’s hard to go wrong with delicious food, friends, jazz and a good cause: On March 13, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High  School Educational Foundation’s annual “Evening of Wine, Chocolate and Cheese” proved to be another big success, as more than 200 guests attended and mingled with faculty, staff and alumni and enjoyed the music of the B-CC Jazz Band.

The money raised will go to support the Foundation’s many programs at the school.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation by three B-CC students who benefitted from three of the Foundation’s signature programs: Francis Navas-Ochoa, ’14, spoke about attending the Summer Academy the summer before his freshman year; Grace Rosen, ’16, explained how much the TAP program has helped her with Algebra II (see a quote from her speech to the left); and Jannah Madyun, ’11, who is now a junior at the University of Maryland, College Park, described her experience with College Tracks and how instrumental the program was in helping her get into college. B-CC Foundation President Matt Gandal and B-CC Principal Karen Lockard also spoke briefly about the importance of the Foundation to the school, and Foundation Secretary Bruce Rosenblum delivered advice to incoming parents and announced the winners of the drawing of gift cards from area merchants.

More pictures from the evening can be viewed here.

If you were unable to attend, you can still make your donation online.

TAP, B-CC High School’s only after-school academic support program, is funded entirely by the Foundation from donations from the B-CC community — current and former B-CC families, alumni, friends, townships, and local businesses. It offers sessions on English, Math, Science, and Social Studies (new this school year), all staffed by B-CC teachers.

According to Ms. Farrar, students have made more than 800 visits to TAP at B-CC so far this school year, with two-thirds of the visits accounted for by sophomores and juniors. Math continues to be in highest demand, with students seeking help in subjects ranging from Algebra and Geometry to AP Calculus and AP Statistics. Almost 60% of the Math visits were for Pre-Calculus and Honors Algebra.

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Educational Foundation was established in 1995 during a time of declining enrollment and deteriorating facilities at B-CC High School. The Foundation took on the charge to help improve school facilities, raise academic rigor, and re-engineer B-CC for the 21st Century.

Foundation Net Revenue 1996-2016 By the summer of 2016, the Foundation has raised more than two and a half million dollars to meet that challenge and to invest in academic excellence at B-CC High School. With new programs and a newly modernized facility that was completed in February 2002, B-CC’s enrollment, reflecting community confidence in the school, has been increasing steadily ever since.

The generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, students, businesses, and community members has made it possible for the Foundation to fund innovative academic support programs that promote high academic standards and support success for all B-CC students.
