Question: If the juniors decide to attend college 101 instead of performing at the concert, the absence from the band concert will affect their grades?
Leigh Moss
52:05
Will there be a clap out for seniors?
Barb Kaufman
53:12
thanks so much from all the seniors!!
Diana Ying Chen
53:17
What is the platform of college 101? Is it a pre-record event same as last year or it will have a live Q&A?
Leigh Moss
54:00
Diana - they said it’s the student’s choice. So your Junior should discuss it with Mr Posner.
Leah Abel
54:22
Will College 101 be recorded?
Diana Ying Chen

For both the Graduation tickets and for the Parking pass there is a place to either auction for the highest bidder and purchase a raffle ticket for the drawing - you can participate in both!!!!!
Diana Ying Chen
56:03
Thank you, Cathy.
Renu Zaretsky
56:08
That’s so handy, thank you — both virtual recording of College 101 and the double ways to win a parking pass. :)
Margo Lazar
56:58
So for college 101, the advantage for watching live is the ability to ask questions instead of watching the recording? Trying to figure out the band conflict here as well.
Cathy McDonald (she/her)
57:22
There will be no live questions...just a live stream. So no real advantage either way
Leigh Moss
57:44
Will there be a clap out for seniors? I know there are AP exams the week of May 24 & finals - could we do it after the 1/2 day?

Debbie Binder… sleuth around the BHHS website! That will show all the different club listings, athletics, and more. It’s also really important to know where to look on the website for all this information, since so much of this info may not always be pushed out on the PTO FB page or by the Black Hawk updates.
Catherine Daneshvar
02:07:00
There usually is. We’ll see about timing
