  • Congratulations to our seniors, best wishes for a bright future

    Dear BCPS Seniors,

    It is now a very short time until graduation day on June 4, and I want to use this space to write to you a little advice. 

    I’m sure you’ve been hearing a lot of it lately and I guarantee you will be hearing a lot more.

    When I spoke to you all during the spring of your 8th grade year, I talked about personal responsibility, making your own choices, about how your family history or financial circumstances need not determine your success.
