BHS News

From the Principal:

Good afternoon,

I have attached a link to our year end calendar.  As you will see, BHS can be a very busy place:  

Important Dates and Events:
4/15 - Battle of the Bands - 7:00pm
4/20 - 4/22 - Intersession
4/25 - 4/29 - Spring Vacation

From the Counseling Department:
Advanced Placement: AP pre-registration for May testing will take place this Wednesday the 13th in the Commons. Students should report to Advisory and head to Commons immediately after attendance is taken. This process should take approximately 25 minutes.

Athletes: The NHHEAF Network Organizations will be hosting a Student Athlete Night at Londonderry High School on Thursday, 4/21/16 at 6 p.m. This is a great opportunity for potential college athletes to learn, not only about playing collegiate-level sports, but also how to navigate the college admissions process. Guest panelists include college coaches, compliance officers and players! This presentation is open to all interested. If you have questions, please contact Senior College Counselor Jay Hauser at (800)525-2577.

From the Deans:
IB Testing Schedules have been sent home with students via Advisory: Students received their testing schedules and instructions on how to access scores later this summer--Please check in with your student to ensure they understand where to be!

Math Summer Enrichment - see BHS Summer School Website for more info
  • Intro to Computer Programming (0.5 credits, current RAL grade 8 students who are passing Algebra IA or higher are welcome and do earn high school credit!)
  • Introductory Statistics Hybrid (0.5 credits, Algebra I & Geometry prerequisite)
English Summer Enrichment
Exciting news! The Humanities Department will be offering two additional opportunities for students to take courses and earn credit over the summer. If enough students sign up, we will offer a section of Creative Writing and a section of Public Presentations during the summer school session in July. Please see the Counseling page on the website or follow this link for more information. If a student has requested one of these courses for next year and chooses to enroll over the summer, the course will be deleted from the student’s schedule for next year, creating an open spot for either Managed Time or another elective with open seats. Remember, that the summer course will only run if enough students register. Register by the May 15th deadline to secure your spot! After that, students will be enrolled in the course only if a seat remains available.

Student Activities:
Parents Pre-Prom Party  May 6th 7-9  All parents are invited to attend.  The prom committee is still looking for sponsors as well as items to auction off at the silent auction.  Parents will also be able to purchase a prom gift for their student.  Questions should be directed to Mr. Dempsey at
Prom May 7th 6-11
Need RWL hours?  If the answer is yes please see Mr. Dempsey  asap.

In Sports:
This week, we implemented a new platform that NHMI and Safe Sports Network are integrating into our concussion testing with all of our underclassmen Spring athletes (except Outdoor Track).  It is called C3logix and it incorporates a balance test.  The balance portion has become a vital part of concussion diagnosis and treatment and that is why we will be shifting to this technology.  An IPad is attached to the athlete in a special belt.  To be clear, we will still be using ImPACT for the Spring season and most likely into our next school year.   We hope to have C3logix fully integrated by the end of next year.

From the SAU:
Community-Wide Substance Abuse Discussion on Sunday April 10
You are invited to an important event entitled "It’s Time to Break the Silence!"  This community-wide discussion will be held at the Bedford Presbyterian Church on Sunday, April 10 from 6:30-8:00 PM. This is an opportunity to discuss drug and alcohol abuse and share ways to address these serious challenges.  Parents, teens, and youth from 4th to 12th grade are invited.  For more info contact John Sawyer or 603-472-5841.

Parent Involvement Survey
If your child receives special education services, you are being asked to complete a survey about the district's efforts to involve parents in improving services and results for children. Paper surveys are in the mail complete with a pre-paid return envelope. If you prefer, you can go to and complete the survey online. Surveys must be completed by May 13th. Your opinions are very important, and we hope you share them.

Bedford Schools Water Supply
Concerns about the water supply have been in the news recently.  We want to make sure everyone on our community knows that none of the water supplying the Bedford Schools comes from the Merrimack Village Water District. Manchester Water Works supplies Peter Woodbury and Memorial. Pennichuck Water Works supplies McKelvie, Lurgio, Bedford High School, and Riddle Brook through a Manchester water source.
