Aggie Weekly-December 16th

Aggie Weekly
Good Afternoon Students, Parents, and Community Members:
This week we welcomed in winter with our first snowfall this weekend and on Thursday morning.  In addition, our students continued to brave the frigid temperatures and demonstrated the Bristol Aggie resilience.  Just a reminder that there are NO Midterms being sent/emailed home this week, so please check ParentPortals for updated grades.  

Next Phase for Seniors:  We are proud to share with you our seniors’ plans for their next steps in college and career exploration.  Based on the knowledge and skills,  learned during their 4 years at BA, we are excited to  publish acceptances into colleges, universities, military plans, and any career pathways cach week.  Please let Ms. Dias know in Student Services, so we can update our list weekly.  Thank you for your dedication to excellence and drive to maintain Bristol Aggie Excellence.  

School Building Committee Update: On Tuesday, the School Building Committee met to discuss the new Center for Science and the Environment and the Dairy Barn.  Below are some new renderings of the project to date.  The concept and design will likely change as this is still in the preliminary stage of the design process.  

BCAHS DESE Report Card 2017:

In the Classroom:
  • Floriculture: The senior flori class has been busy this week decorating the Stanish House for the holidays! Our department is so lucky to have the support from the other departments and foreman. Dan Flynn in Animal Science provided us with the feathers. Seth Cook and Melissa Duffy in Arboriculture provided us with different sized wood cookies.
  • Landscape: In Mr. Ryan’s Sophomore Related/Pesticide students learning about personal protective equipment (PPE)  Thank you James and Kaylanii for being such great models.

Scholarship Opportunities:  

The Yawkey Scholars Program invites you to help us find promising students for a scholarship opportunity for graduating high school students entering private colleges in Massachusetts in the 2018-2019 school year. This program is designed to make college affordable for talented, motivated, low-income students from Massachusetts. It provides a four-year renewable tuition scholarship and other supports to help students achieve academically and go on to be successful and highly productive members of our community. Over the past twelve years, the Yawkey Scholars Program has provided
$10 million in tuition supports to 298 Scholars as they pursue a college education.

Many students are deserving of this type of support during college, but this program seeks to support and encourage students:

  1. Who have a strong academic record, or demonstration of significant improvement over time
  2. Who are planning to attend a competitive private college in Massachusetts
  3. Who are engaged in a meaningful mentoring relationship
  4. Who have unmet financial need and would benefit from scholarship support so that they can graduate with a manageable loan burden
We invite you to share the Yawkey Scholars Program guidelines with students who will be entering college in fall 2018 and who meet this program’s criteria.

Information about the Yawkey Scholars Program, including guidelines and application instructions, can be found here.

Applications must be submitted online – hard copies will not be accepted.
Applications must be completed online by February 15, 2018 at noon EST.
The Yawkey Scholars Program is administered by The Philanthropic Initiative (TPI). Please direct any questions to Laura Hechtman at 617.338.5895 or yawkey@tpi.org.
