Hello BSS Grad families!


The year is going by quick and we wanted to reach out via email to share some information with you all - we know we are missing families on the parent Facebook page and encourage everyone to join to stay current with Grad happenings, especially now that it is coming up fast! Click here to join → Ballenas Grad Parents 2021


Also, mark your calendars for April 8th at 7pm to attend a Grad Parent Zoom Meeting (link to follow closer to the event). We'll be sharing some details at this one!


The Executive has been working hard behind the scenes to plan an event to celebrate our grads accomplishments, with the hopes that restrictions are not tightened before then. We have the date of July 3rd set and are planning on the traditional Parade with Red Carpet and a smaller-scale event at a local outdoor location. We will be needing volunteers to help with set-up, take-down, security and more!


NOTE: Due to COVID restrictions, there will be NO dates allowed to attend prom that are not IN the graduating class.


Make sure your student is a member on the Grad Class pages on Facebook and IG, and checking the pages frequently to know what fun activities and volunteer opportunities (to help reduce Grad Fees) that the Student Grad Council are putting together so they don't miss out! If they have any questions, they can ask any member of the Council.
