Throughout the school year, the houses will compete in a unique competition every quarter as well as earn points for participating in and attending special events, academic performance, athletic participation, and good behavior.
Every quarter, houses will earn points for a variety of activities listed here:
Special Events Participation
Students who participate in a specified event (choir, MACS competitions, etc.) will receive points for their house. For year-long programs like choir, points will be awarded quarterly (but at a reduced fraction to be spread out). Not every event is eligible for points--these will be announced well ahead of time.
Attending Special Events
Students who attend a specified event (concerts, sporting events, etc.) will receive points for their house. Not every event is eligible for points--these will be announced well ahead of time.
Students will earn points for their house for the first three quarters based on their quarter GPA.
Students who participate in BCS sports will earn points for their house. For athletics, the points will be awarded as follows: Fall Sports for 1st quarter; Winter Sports for 2nd quarter; Spring Sports for 3rd quarter.
Students can earn bonus points throughout the year for displaying a consistent positive attitude, demonstrating school spirit and being a good role model for their peers.
