Join the Debate Team- Great College Preparation!
Did you know that students who participate in debate are more likely to gain acceptance at elite colleges than similarly qualified students who have never debated?
The Battlefield HS Debate team will be holding an interest meeting on Tuesday Sept. 9 at 2:10 in the library.  Team captains will give a presentation explaining the difference between Policy debate and Lincoln-Douglas debate. Follow-up lessons on how to debate will begin the following week, so this meeting will allow you to determine which subsequent sessions to attend.  See the tentative debate schedule for more details.

Stop Summer Reading Loss-Participate in Summer Reading Programs!
Research studies show that students who read over the summer maintain or increase their literacy while those who do not read over the summer significantly regress and return to school in the Fall less prepared than when they left.  Fortunately, there are three summer reading programs available to BHS students:
The extra-credit PWCS voluntary summer reading program for all students, 

the Pre-AP and AP summer reading/assignments, and the

Prince William Public Library summer reading program.  Summer reading is a great way to do something enjoyable while ensuring academic success for the coming year!
