Tips for a successful 9th grade year!
GET INVOLVED! BHS has so many clubs and organizations to offer, everyone can find something that appeals to them. Make sure you join as many as you wish. INVOLVED students are successful students!
*Take ALL of your classes seriously. Now that you have entered high school, EVERY class that you take will affect you through high school and beyond. Classes are also bound to be more challenging than what you have had in the past. Don't panic when teachers tell you what's in store. YOU CAN HANDLE IT! Participate, ask questions, keep up with homework assignments and study hard!
*Make a special effort to form a positive relationship with faculty at the school. These include teachers, coaches, faculty advisors, counselors, Officer Jeter, Mr. Scott, Mrs. Tugwell, and Mr. Thrash. These adults can serve as mentors, resources and friends. Let them know you are open to advice--and go to them when you need it!
*Be open to new friendships. As you enter high school, you may notice that people you once were close to are changing. They are probably thinking the same thing about you. This is natural. Interests change, plus there is an opportunity to meet new people. But keep in mind, this is not a tragedy. Changing relationships are a part of life. Just make sure that your new friends make good choices. Surround yourself with positive people and you will be more successful!
*Keep your absenteeism in check! Your teachers can't teach you if you aren't in school. Only miss school when it is absolutely necessary. Doctor/dentist appointments should be scheduled after school if possible. If you do happen to miss school, check your teachers' websites for missing assignments or call a friend. You are still expected to complete the work. It can become very overwhelming if you get behind in your courses.
Student to Student
Student to Student is our welcoming group on campus for all new students- the ones from other schools in Bossier Parish as well as students from all over the country and beyond. This is a student-led group that gives tours, provides information to acclimate students to Bossier City and Bossier High School, and holds welcoming lunches during the year to get to know new students and introduce them to their peers. Please contact the counselors if you need to get connected to this group!
