  • Screenagers

    Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018
    7:00 p.m.
    What is it like for our children growing up in the Digital Age? What is the impact of the Digital Age and how do we help minimize harmful effects and find balance? The new film, “Screenagers” addresses these questions, helping parents/guardians feel better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Learn about the impact of violent video games on desensitizing viewers, how do cell phones affect social skills, etc. There is no fee for this film, which will be shown at Groves High School in the auditorium.

BPS Accolades

  • Water Polo success 

    The Boys Seaholm Water Polo Team recently qualified for States, which begin on Friday, Nov. 10. This has been their first 20-win season since 2004 and the first time the team has reached States since 2013. Congratulations to the team, and good luck in Ann Arbor at the State competition!  

    National Merit achievements

    Officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $32 million that will be offered next spring. About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualify Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. 

    Additionally, Commended students were recognized for their achievements. Commended students are within the top 50,000 highest scorers.

    We are happy to announce the BPS National Merit Scholarship Competition Semifinalists and Commended students of 2018.
