BHS National Honor Society Selection Procedures

1. Candidacy for the BHS National Honor Society (NHS) is open to only juniors and seniors who have attended BHS for a minimum of one semester. Selection is a privilege, not a right. Students do not "apply" for a membership. Instead, they are invited to submit information in support of their candidacy to be reviewed by a five member Faculty Council, representing the Faculty of BHS.

2. At the end of the second term of the Junior year and at the end of terms one and two of Senior year, students who have met the cumulative GPA requirement of 6.500 (on a scale of 8.000) are invited to submit further information regarding their credentials for SCHOLARSHIP, LEADERSHIP, SERVICE, and CHARACTER. This additional student information assists the Faculty Council to ascertain the degree to which a student candidate meets the overall selection criteria. The packets must be completed, signed by both student and parent, and returned to the advisors by the specified deadline. Note that late or incomplete forms are taken as negative indicators and will have an impact on selection.

3. Additional input collected from such sources as school records for academics, attendance, guidance, conduct, and administrative or professional teacher records may also be considered. In particular, a list of all scholastically eligible students is sent to members of the faculty and staff who are invited to either to recommend or to not recommend the student based upon their knowledge of the student, as well as to elaborate on the strengths and weaknesses of any active student candidates in the areas of SCHOLARSHIP, LEADERSHIP, SERVICE, and CHARACTER. If a faculty or staff member does not recommend a student, an explanation must be included. A single instance of non-recommendation will not necessarily eliminate the applicant.

4. Upon reviewing each active candidate's credentials, activity information, faculty evaluation, and other factors, the Faculty Council will give individual consideration to and conduct a review of every student in making a final decision.

5. All active candidates will be informed of the decision of the Faculty Council. If not selected, the candidate will be contacted personally by the advisor and will have the opportunity to review the decision. If selected, the candidate is notified in writing.

6. Students and parents wishing to appeal the outcome of the selection process should first meet with the advisor. Should the student and/or parents still not be satisfied, the next level of discussion should take place with the Headmaster.

Parents of the inductees will be invited to a special induction ceremony held each year in April. NHS Members annually engage in fund-raising activities and community service projects. These funds are used to help support the annual activities such as the teacher appreciation day, adopt-a-family, holiday baskets, the annual induction ceremony and to fund the NHS scholarship.

Spirit week to the students is easily, undoubtedly, the most memorable, and most cherished week students have throughout each school year. Spirit week is where students get to express who they really are and best of all how much spirit they show. Spirit week is unlike any other school event. Not only does nearly every single student participate in spirit week, nearly every student goes above and beyond anybody's expectations. Spirit week is an opportunity for all students to go all out and try to be the most spirited person in the school.
  • Monday this year is Decade Day, where students dress as any decade they want from the Stone Age to present day. Any decade it is up to the students to own and master. Be creative!!!
  • Tuesday this year is Country Western Day. Students will be able to show off their western side, this means cow boy hats, boots, the whole 9 yards.
  • Wednesday this year is Multiplicity Day. Being the favorite of the voting poles this year, Multiplicity Day will sure to be a hit. From a class full of Vikings to Dressing like a construction worker with your friends, Multiplicity Day is easily the "fan favorite" throughout the school. Again make sure to be creative!
  • Thursday is Color Wars. Freshmen are Red, Sophomores are Green, Juniors are Orange, and Seniors are rocking the classic senior Yellow. Color Wars is exactly what is sounds like. Grades compete to see who can wear the most of their color. It's always a "war" to see who is the most spirited, but it is always up for grabs! Students should do all they can to show their true colors. Shirts for each class are being sold at lunch all week for $12 a shirt. They're colored according to grade and says the grade on the back. They are definitely worth it. It is an easy way to get your colors out there!
  • Friday is Blue and White Day where students of all grades will be wearing blue and white to show their WAMP pride. Make sure you show it off!
AND REMEMBER BE APPROPRIATE FOR WHAT YOU WEAR. DRESS CODE STILL APPLIES.

Applause PosterBraintree High School Theatre Guild will present Charles Strouse’s Applause , the 1970 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, directed by Rolf I. Carlson. With music by Charles Strouse. Lyrics by Lee Adams and a book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Applause is based on the 1950 movie All About Eve.


The Broadway star Margo Channing (Debbie Proulx ‘19) is fresh off the success of her opening night play, when she first meets a young, seemingly-harmless girl named Eve Harrington (Amanda Brennan ‘19). Margo’s fiance and director, Bill Sampson (Sean Kelliher ‘19), prepares to leave for Rome to direct a movie, leaving Margo feeling lonely and anxious that he may leave her for a younger woman. Duane (Colton Lydon-Shay ‘21), Margo’s hairdresser and best friend, takes Margo and Eve to a nightclub where they dance and have a wonderful time, leading Eve to reveal that it has been “The Best Night of My Life.” Throughout the course of the musical, Eve manipulates Margo as she tries to claim her role, spotlight, and man. Hayley Benedict (Caroline Ford ‘20), the producer of the show, gradually catches on to Eve’s plot. Hayley introduces Eve to the gypsies, led by Bonnie (Amelia Diana ‘19). Other notable friends, such as Karen Richards (Jasmine Francoeur ‘19), Buzz Richards (Brendan McMullin ‘19), and Bert (Matthew Shea., 19) accompany Margo along the way to learning her true purpose at this stage of her life. 

Applause will have five performances at Braintree High School in Grabosky Auditorium on Wednesday, November 7th, Thursday, November 8th, Friday, November 9th at 7pm and on Saturday, November 10th, at 2pm and 8pm.

Intramurals

Letter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We would like to encourage your child to become involved in the Braintree School intramural program. The purpose of intramurals is to provide students the opportunity to participate in a variety of recreational activities after the regular school day, as an extension of the physical education program. Participation in intramurals will not only provide a chance for your child to be active, but will also give the student ample opportunities to make new friends and demonstrate such qualities as sportsmanship, cooperation, and leadership in a supervised and structured environment.

The Braintree Public School intramural program will run after school. There will be intramural sessions offered – Fall, Winter and Spring. Students wishing to participate must report to the sign up meetings to learn when and where the sport/activity will be taking place. Please remind your student to listen for the announcements made for intramurals. The intramurals offered will be posted on the school websites.

Students will be required to sign in everyday they attend an intramural session. They are not required to change clothes, but we do ask that all participants wear court shoes or sneakers.

Appropriate behavior will be expected of all intramural participants. Students may be removed from the program if poor behavior becomes a recurring problem. The Braintree Public School Physical Education staff hopes that you will encourage your child to participate frequently in the intramural program, as we feel that it is the perfect chance for our students to make friends and increase their physical fitness levels.

If you have any questions about Braintree’s Intramural Program please do not hesitate to contact my office.

Sincerely,
Melonie Bennett, M.Ed., C.A.G.S.
Director of Physical Education and Health (k-12)

  4. Students will help set up and put equipment away when necessary.
  5. Students will display appropriate cooperation and sportsmanship at all times. AT NO TIME WILL RUDE OR INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS BE TOLERATED. Students are to encourage rather than criticize or discourage others. ANY PHYSICAL CONFRONTATIONS WILL BE DEALT WITH SEVERELY.

PENALTIES FOR MISBEHAVING

Students will be given one or more verbal warnings depending on the severity of the infraction. Students who display continuous acts of unsportsmanlike conduct, rough play, or general disobedience may be asked to sit out that day’s session. The next time that the student exhibits poor behavior, he or she will be denied the privilege of attending intramurals for two days. The THIRD TIME the student has a problem he or she will be asked not to return to intramural until a parent- teacher conference can be scheduled. It is the responsibility of the student to ask his or her parent to schedule a conference. The administration reserves the right to deal with any situation of misbehavior as they deem necessary.
