Last night, BNT freshman showcased their projects at the Fred C. Fischer Library in Belleville. Parents, facilitators, and community members were present to watch presentations from groups as well as a gallery walk of creative products. Thank you to the hard work of Ms. Slingerland, Mr. Hutchinson, and all of the BNT freshman who participated.

PAC Coffee Club Night 11/19/12 Highlights
Thanks to everyone that joined in, it was a very positive and encouraging gathering! Coffee wasn’t bad either!
- Mr. Butka and facilitators shared an overview of the Schoolcraft and Washtenaw Community College field trips–BNT Students were able to complete the COMPASS test at WCC and tour both schools. Exciting News…. WCC will be BNT’s first college partner!
- Mrs. Sprague and Mr. Buison provided an update on the honors program–projects were due December 14th! Discussion took place of possible peer to peer activities for next semester and of facilitator availability for support and help. Facilitators are available for after-school help on certain days and times, students please check with them as needed.
- Mrs. Mercer provided an update on the U of M fundraiser of working concessions during the home football games at the “Big House” in Ann Arbor this year. It took a lot of very hard work but was successful! Discussions took place on ways to generate more support by BNT Families in the coming year.
**Of Special Note: this is an excellent way to raise funds for activities like the above mentioned field trip without having to sell things (UGH…) and a Big THANK-YOU to Mrs. Mercer who made this activity a success despite the many obstacles!
