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.
