High School Admissions

8th graders in need of recommendations/school records


If your 8th grader is applying to a high school that requests a letter of recommendation, work from his/her 7th grade portfolio, a copy of his/her 7th grade report card, or any other kind of school record, this must be requested at least a week in advance and students must fill out a request for recommendation form.  Please send in an addressed, stamped envelope if you need material mailed from the school.

Any issues with attendance must be corrected in the Main Office before the end of the 7th grade school year.  Adjustments to attendance records CAN NOT happen in the fall of 8th grade.  

Office Hours
One on one meetings scheduled as needed.  Contact mary.valentine@bpcschool.org for details.
