received a scholarship of $500 or more, the Sentinel-Tribune
has a policy that you may have your photograph published in
a future edition of the newspaper. Your photo can be printed
only once.
If interested, pick up a form in the guidance office, list
your scholarships, attach a photograph and return it to Marie Thomas, at the Sentinel-Tribune. Students who will be

It’s time for the BGHS Local
Scholarship Program
The Ohio State Legislature has established the Honors Diploma and
it’s criteria, which differs for vocational and college preparatory students. Penta students seeking an Honors Diploma should see Mrs. Rehard at Penta. College preparatory students at BGHS should check the
list posted in the main and guidance offices in mid-May. If their name
is NOT already on the posted list and you think you qualify, see Mr.
Hackenburg to verify your eligibility.
The Local Scholarship Awards Ceremony is scheduled
for Tuesday, April 26 at 7 p.m. in the Performing Arts
Center at the Bowling Green Middle School. This program will recognize students who have been selected as
recipients for our many local scholarships. Students that
have been chosen for scholarships will receive advance
invitations by mail. All seniors, parents, family members
and friends are welcome to attend this event. A separate
awards assembly for academic awards by department will
be held during the school day on May 16th.
Due to the low enrollment for Summer Health Class we are not going to
offer this as a class option for the summer. However, you may sign up
for Summer Health Class through GradPoint. This course will cost
$100.00. See Mrs. Eyer to sign up in the Guidance Office.
Scholarship information arrives in the guidance office throughout the school year. Students are encouraged to
routinely review scholarship opportunities in the guidance office.

Preschool Program
The Bowling Green School District provides a preschool program for children with special needs. The preschool classes are taught by certified teachers and follow a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Each
class is held for 2 ½ hours, Monday thru Thursday. The classrooms are housed at Crim Elementary
School. If you know a child between the ages of 3 and 5 who may have special needs, please contact Christie Walendzak at (419) 352-3576 ext. 4033.

know a child who would be appropriate as a peer please contact Ann Sommers at (419) 352-3576 ext. 4031.
