  • 12th Grade Panorama Field Trip

    In October, the 12th grade students took a fascinating trip to Queens Museum to see the Panorama, a scale model of the entire city of New York, and to learn about urban planning. After a quick jaunt on the 7 train and lovely walk through Flushing Park, we arrived at the Queens Museum. The Seniors spent time exploring the wonders of the Panorama, identifying landmarks, and a few even found their homes!

Principal's Corner

 Dear BCAM Students and Families,

We missed you at last Thursday/Friday 1st Quarter Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please be reminded that not only do we hope you will attend these conferences, we expect you to attend to meet with your student’s teachers and discuss his/her progress. As such, please find enclosed the following documents for you to review: 

  • Official Transcript including 2016-17 Term 1 Grades: 45 or 55 represents failing grades. A 65 is the lowest passing grade. 75 is a C. 85 is a B. 95 is an A. If your student has an NX next to any class, he/she has 2 weeks, until December 2, 2016 to complete a set of work to turn a failing grade to a passing grade. THESE TRANSCRIPTS ALSO INCLUDE RESULTS FROM SUMMER REGENT EXAMS.
  • BCAM Targeted NX Incomplete Assignment Form: This document shares the assignments that must be completed by December 2, 2016 to pass any classes where an incomplete grade has been give. If these assignments are not completed by this date to the satisfaction of the teacher, this will be a failing grade.
  • Official 1st Quarter Attendance: Please find the column in the lower right side that notes attendance-to-date for the 2016-17 school year. Please note days absent and days late. Those usually correlate to grade—many absence/latenesses result in low grades; few absences/latenesses translate to higher grades.
  • Official NYC DOE Graduation Tracker: This document shows whether your student is currently on track or off track regarding graduation requirements. Even 2nd Quarter 9th Graders can be on track or off track based on 1st Quarter credit accumulation.

We also would like to remind you of important upcoming dates:

  • December/January PTA meetings: Our monthly PTA meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 6pm-7pm. THESE ARE WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21ST, 2016 AND JANUARY 18TH, 2017.
  • BCAM Holiday Advisory Brunch: On Friday, December 23rd we will have our annual Advisory Holiday Brunch at school. Students are invited to attend from 8:30am-10:30am that morning to share in students’ Advisory brunch and short curricular activity before 10:30am dismissal for Winter Recess.
  • Winter Recess: Winter Recess takes place from Saturday, December 24th - Monday, January 2nd. Students return to school Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017.
  • Winter Recess Credit Recovery: BCAM will hold a 3-day credit recovery session from 8:30am-2:30pm on Tuesday, December 27th; Wednesday, December 28th; and Thursday, December 29th. This will be worth .5 credits for classes failed in the past. We will send a document to you requiring these students to attend these sessions in the coming weeks.

 Please don’t forget to check out our website: www.bcamhs.org to stay updated on our school!!! Finally, please email our Parent Coordinator Joseph Cooper (jcooper@bcamhs.org) your own email for regular blasts. 

Have a happy and safe holiday season.
