Dear Parents/Guardians/Students:

 

I wanted to let you know about two exciting opportunities for course work, including Dual Enrollment at BPSTIL after hours, perhaps 4-5:30.

 

The two opportunities we are looking at target two different groups of students. 

 

1.   The first is a developmental math course provided by BPCC for students who need a higher Math sub-component on the ACT. This course would include and ACT voucher for the April ACT for qualifying students.  The cost of this course would be covered by a grant, and there is the potential of providing transportation for students as well.  We are tentatively looking at Tuesday and Thursdays.

 

2.  A dual enrollment Pre-Calculus course offered at BPSTIL at the same time.  This would be for students who want this higher level math.  Again, this would be covered by a grant and have the potential for transportation provided.

 

Please email me at nichole.nuccio@bossierschools.org and let me know if you (or your student) might be interested in one of these opportunities.  This information will be shared at the district level on Nov 1.

 

Thank you,

 

Nichole Nuccio

The 2016-2017 Yearbook is delayed due to this summer's construction. It caused major delays as the internet and power were turned off and the school was not accessible to faculty due to safety concerns. As such, the Yearbook staff was unable to access any files or programs to complete the yearbook as this yearbook was designed to feature the 100th graduating class of Bossier High. As soon as it arrives, we will post it on the website and our new Bossier High mobile app.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

It is hard to believe that we are almost half way through the first grading period! Our students have demonstrated a strong start to the academic year and we are certainly proud of them. 

This school year, students who are enrolled in the English I, English II, Algebra I, and Geometry courses are now expected to complete diagnostic and interim assessments associated with the new Leap 2025 comprehensive course assessments, formerly known as the EOC or "End of Course" test.  The students recently completed the diagnostic assessment which shows students and teachers what they know as they approach a new academic year. The Interim assessments will serve as benchmark measurements and will help to guide instruction toward mastery of the content presented courses that will be tested with the Leap 2025 State Assessment at the end of each semester.  

 

The Leap 2025 State Assessment will take place from November 29th until December 12th. Actual testing schedules for content areas will be released prior to Thanksgiving break. It is very important that students arrive on time to school during the testing window.  Students enrolled in English I, English II, English III, Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, and US History are required to take the Leap 2025 State Assessment. A passing score on the assessment and in coursework will be required to obtain credit for the course. 

 

Also, Juniors and some select Seniors will take the ACT in March.  Seniors will be highly encouraged to take the exam on this date, even if they have tested previously. For National ACT testing dates offered away from the Bossier High campus, please login to ACT.org. 

 

Please feel free to direct any questions to me at nichole.nuccio@bossierschools.org or (318) 549-6707. You may also contact your student's teacher or guidance counselor. 

 

Thank you for your continued support!

What is College Goal Sunday®?

Louisiana College Goal Sunday® is sponsored by the Louisiana Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (LASFAA) and the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance (LOSFA).

This initiative provides invaluable assistance to both traditional and non-traditional students and their parents in understanding the financial aid application process and will provide line by line assistance with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. Free one-on-one assistance from financial aid professionals will be available at sites statewide.

Financial Aid professionals from Louisiana institutions of higher education will be on hand during College Goal Sunday events to guide you through this application process. Computer labs will be open so that your electronic FAFSA can be completed and submitted on site before you leave the event.

With more than $60 billion available in federal aid (according to the U.S. Department of Education), financial aid can make college a reality by helping to cover associated expenses.

  There’s something happening at Bossier High School that’s catching the attention of other schools around the parish.
  Once a week, students have the opportunity to attend an enrichment block to get additional help in whatever subject they need help with. It’s called WIN block, or “Whatever I Need.”

  Principal David Thrash implemented the concept seven weeks ago and it’s already working. Senior Alyssa Broadway is using WIN block for help with AP English IV.

  “We go over questions to help us prepare for the AP exam,” Broadway explained. “I’m getting a sense of how to prepare for the questions and building my analytical and comprehension skills. It has given me a better understanding in all of my classes, not just English. It’s been really beneficial.”

  She has also seen an improvement in her ACT test score. She was in the low 20s taking the practice exam. However, she earned an overall 28 in English and 26 in Reading in October.

  Success stories like this are what Bossier Superintendent Scott Smith is excited about. He believes strongly in the strength of PLCs, which stands for Professional Learning Communities.

  “It’s all about collaboration,” Smith said. “It’s important that we know what each school is doing so we can all move forward. When we have the same goal, we know we can reach it with positive results.”

  All Bossier Parish principals recently took a field trip to Bossier High School and witnessed WIN Wednesday in action. Sandrina Isebaert, Principal at Plain Dealing High/Middle School, said she could see something like this implemented successfully in her school.

  “I think it’s a great idea,” she said. “The fact that they have the entire school involved is the most impressive thing about this. They have found something for every student to do, regardless of their academic level, and every student is on task.”

  Smith hopes the school principals will take it as an opportunity to see what would work for their school.

  “It’s a mini block where students who are struggling in certain areas can get reinforcement and students who are already successful receive more complex work,” Smith explained. “Right now, I see nothing but good coming from this. If they are ready and willing, there’s a way to implement it and make it work.”

  Broadway, who plans to attend college and work her way into the medical field, hopes what Bossier High is doing will inspire other administrators to take action.

  “I would really recommend other schools to implement this,” she said. “People typically underestimate Bossier [High School], but this showcases the care our administration and faculty has for their students. This is a great opportunity for students to grow and succeed.”

  Ultimately, Smith said it’s about student achievement.
  “If we can increase learning opportunities and reach higher achievements, we have met our goal,” he said. “It’s just about getting from point A to point B. Now they have seen a whole new horizon of opportunities that they can bring to their students.”

For the first time at BHS in recent years, NHS members are not only earning at least 20 community service hours over the 2016-17 school year, but also went out into the community as an organization to provide services to local elementary/middle school kids at the VOA Lighthouse Center. 

 

Our project, held on November 1 at the Lighthouse after school, was a resounding success! 10 NHS members and 3 sponsors spent Tuesday afternoon tutoring, establishing relationships & leading recreation as the students at the center rotated through their study, recreation & snack groups.

 

Because of the positive way our NHS members worked with everyone there, the director and leaders there have invited them back to help again, in mentoring and tutoring these students. Also, several of our members expressed enjoyment in helping there and an interest in performing more of their own service hours at community centers. We are proud of our NHS students here at BHS!
