Ways to Help B-CC:


Ways to Help B-CC:

  • Donate to the B-CC HS Educational Foundation — Contributions to the Foundation have enabled B-CC High School to continue as a first-rate educational institution in this community. They have helped equip the newly renovated school with state-of-the-art technology, including a Cyber café, a language lab, and research hubs for small group learning. They have supported innovative educational programs, such as the International Baccalaureate, the Summer Academy for low-achieving students, the after-school academic support program for all students, and CollegeTracks which helps first-generation, college-bound students in navigating the college and financial aid application process. They also have provided grants to teachers for training and classroom materials. To help, please go to donation.
  • Buy a Brick — The B-CC High School inner courtyard is lined with engraved bricks purchased by members of the B-CC community including graduates, teachers, administrators, students, parents, families, local communities, and clubs. Graduates of B-CC classes ranging from 1936-2007 are among the brick purchasers. The cost is $75 per brick and the money goes directly to the Foundation and the PTSA for the benefit of B-CC High School. Buy one for yourself, for a classmate, or for a teacher. Please go to the Brick Courtyard webpage to view the bricks and to download an order form.
  • Partner with B-CC — B-CC has a long history of partnerships with individuals, businesses, government agencies and nonprofit organizations that offer internships, seminars, guest lectures, job shadowing opportunities, master classes, mentoring and tutoring. Such partnerships allow students to learn about career opportunities, acquire hands-on experience in a field of potential interest, enjoy an enriched classroom experience, and receive extra help they need to succeed academically. For more information on how you can help in these areas, please go to B-CC High School Partnership.
  • Volunteer at B-CC — There are various ways you could help enrich the students' experience at B-CC. You could join the "Speakers Bureau" and share your experience and expertise with B-CC students for a classroom period or a brown-bag lunch period. You could be a mentor: help students with their science fair projects, work with first-generation, college-bound students to navigate the college and financial aid application process, or tutor students who need help with their school work. If you are interested, please email PTSA president, Mary Cobbett.
  • Help build a B-CC alumni network — Alumni are a good resource for the school. An alumni network will aid alumni interested in reconnecting with their old alma mater and former classmates. To have an effective network, we need help from all alumni: be a contact person for your class; send us reunion information and classmate news; distribute B-CC news to your classmates; or help us update the alumni database. If you are interested in helping, please e-mail  Alumni.
  • Be a board member of the B-CC HS Educational Foundation — The Foundation raises funds for projects that continue the tradition of excellence at B-CC. Board members are all volunteers. They develop goals, formulate strategies, and launch fundraising campaigns. Twice a year, they review grant applications and approve funding for projects. The Board meets once every two months, and members communicate via e-mail and telephone between meetings. If you are interested, please e-mail Foundation.
