The Capital Area Student Leadership program encourages students to become active, effective participants and leaders in their schools and community. The goals of CASL are:
• To recruit sophomores from area high schools (Bishop Brady, Bow, Concord Christian, Concord, the Derryfield School, Hopkinton, John Stark, Merrimack Valley, Parker Academy, Pembroke Academy, and Pittsfield) who show leadership potential and young adults likely to assume greater community responsibilities. The CASL program has graduated over 475 students over the last two decades.
• To inspire students to develop, refine and utilize their leadership skills in order to contribute to the greater Concord community.
• To educate students about local issues through the perspective of community leaders.
• To demonstrate problem-solving methods when dealing with opportunities and challenges within the greater Concord community.
• To create a dialogue and develop a network among the students and local leaders.
• To encourage students to recognize and develop leadership styles, skills and roles.

Intersession will be taking place, April 19 – 21, 2017. Please review the Intersession packet (below) to learn about the wide variety of activities that have been planned. ALL BHS students are expected to participate in an activity for the three days of Intersession as regular classes will not be held during this time.
Students should select seven activities, with parents’ approval, that they would be interested in doing. The last page of the packet has the sign-up form that includes a parent’s signature due by 3pm Friday, November 18th. Request forms turned in after that time will be considered late and processed after all the other requests. Placement into activities is done by seniority; seniors, then juniors, sophomores and freshmen. Most students will receive one of their top five choices.
Overnight trips and off-campus activities have been arranged for students in “good standing” who demonstrate positive effort in class, school attendance and good citizenship in the school and community.
For more information about Intersession and the packet of activities, please click on the Intersession link that can be found on the BHS homepage. If you have any questions that can’t be answered on the Intersession website, please feel free to contact Leslie Bean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of the Chromebook 1:1 initiative for the Bow School District this year, all 5th and 9th grade students will have an opportunity to participate in the Google Chromebook take home program. Chromebooks and cases will be loaned to all students who submit a Permission Form, which indicates understanding of the contents of this handbook and our Internet Acceptable Use Policy - IJNDB-R.
Students who plan to bring their own laptops instead of taking advantage of the district provided Chromebook, need to file a Personal Networked Information Device form with the BHS IT Department before their laptop accesses our network.
