News & Announcements

The PowerSchool portal is now open to look at your student’s end of year report card.

Dear Parents,

The PowerSchool portal is now open to look at your student’s end of year report card. Report cards will NOT be mailed home this year. Please log in to PowerSchool via a desktop computer. I don’t believe the phone app will work for this feature.

When you log in, on the left-hand side you will see a feature for REPORT CARDS. Please click on this, and you can view your student’s report card. I would encourage you to save and print the report card as well for your records.

You will also be able to see which courses your student has registered for the 2020-2021 school year by clicking on CLASS REGISTRATION, if you have not checked already. These courses are based on what your child selected/needed back in March. Class selections do not reflect any courses that were failed.

To log in to PowerSchool please visit:

If you do not know your username or password, please send me an email and I will send you your information.

If your student needs to attend Summer School, we will be sending a personalized email regarding more information shortly.

Group Picture - Class of 2023

Well, the Governor did what most of us thought he would do. Schools buildings will be closed for the rest of the year. BCS will continue to offer online learning opportunities. Information about grade recovery is coming. Look for communication about that this coming Monday, April 20th.

I had feared closure of buildings fo the year might happen. So, this creates a few problems.

First, we have to figure out how to distribute yearbooks. That should be very doable. But every year for the past five years, I have always had the freshmen sign my yearbook. I have an idea about that. Stay tuned.

But here’s the bigger problem. Each freshman class for the previous five years has taken a class photo. We frame it and hang it in the cafeteria under the class banner, hang it in the school lobby, and put one in the trophy case with the class memorabilia. Our 2023 class picture was scheduled for April 6th. Needless to say it didn’t happen, and it’s not going to happen.
But, I am not willing to allow this year to go by without a class picture.

So, I have spent a little time the past few weeks creating one for the class of 2023. I took each student’s yearbook photo, reduced it to the same standard size, and pieced together a collage of the Class of 2023. They are in random order. We’ll frame it and hang it along side the others.

Yes, it’s different, but the Class of 2023 will always have a special place in my heart. I do need a caption for this class, so I am looking for suggestions.

Principal's Message

Monday, June 15th, 2020 
I’m sitting here in my office on a quiet day in early June at the end of another school year, just like I have for the previous thirteen years. But there are two differences this year. First, the school has been largely quiet for the past two and a half months. Second, it will be my last. 

Usually about now, as I am sitting at my desk working, and the bell for class change will ring, and like one of Pavlov’s dogs, I will get up and go to the lobby to see all of the faces as they pass by. And of course they are not there. But this year, the bells have all been silent for many weeks. I am tempted to turn the bells back on, if only for the day, just for the memories. 

And it’s the memories I will gladly take with me, for they have been good ones. Thank you all for those. 
As I reflect on the year, and all the years that came before, and with apologies to Lou Gehrig, today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. God bless you all, and again, I say thank you.
John McDonald, Principal
