We hope everyone had a great summer! The news school year is in full swing and campus is bustling. B-CC HS began the 2012-2013 school year on August 27th with 1844 students in grades 9 through 12.

–  9th grade:  484
– 10th grade: 486
– 11th grade: 401
– 12th grade: 473

Classes are larger this year than ever, with an average of 32 or more per class. Some gym classes have over 40 students in each. Although B-CC HS was modernized and opened the new facility just a decade ago, already a large addition is planned, for completion in 2017. As a start to mitigate the overcrowding, MCPS has added two portable classrooms this fall to B-CC’s campus.

We want to put a few events on your radar for the upcoming months:

  • Homecoming is the weekend of October 5th. At 6:30pm on the 5th, don your blue and gold and join us for the Varsity football game vs. Paint Branch High School. B-CC alums and Foundation members will be on hand to sell B-CC alumni caps.
  • And, Ellen’s Run, set for Sunday, October 7th, 9 am, at Candy Cane City, raises money for the B-CC HS Community Scholarship Fund, one of the Foundation’s grant recipients. Students, staff, alums, parents, and community members all participate. Register at www.EllensRunOnline.org
  • B-CC’s fall musical production, The Music Man, is open to the entire community on November 30, and December 1, 2, 7, and 8.

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. In the process, the Foundation helped bring several “firsts” to B-CC High School:
