The 8th Grade Poconos Trip

On the day before the last day of school the former BSGE 8th grade was busy getting their funk on with nature. They went to the Poconos Environmental Education Center (P.E.E.C) in the Pennsylvania Poconos.
On Monday at 9:00am (sharp) 48 BSGE students and 4
teachers boarded two coach buses. With snacks in hand
and sleeping bags in cargo the 8th graders (and Niki, Mrs.
Africano, Linda and Mr. Powell) began their adventure.
The first bus smelled like someone dumped a bottle
of cherry flavored Tylenol all over the backseat. Turns
out the bus company just had something for

Welcome Back to School!

Ahh, the two months of July and August are simply amazing. No pressure of school work on your shoulders, no waking up early, and no parents nagging you about getting your homework done. Unfortunately, those long days at the beach and days of care­free fun are over. Yes, as hard as it is to be­lieve, the summer of 2007 has come to an end.

From the BACC Rag Staff: The Lack of School Moral and How We’re Going to Fix It

We are the Baccalaureate School for Global Education but you might not have known that due to our lack of school sprit. Maybe it’s be­cause we have globes on our school shirts. Or maybe because there is no sprit because, up until this year, we never really had a mascot. Many people use our nonexistent sports teams as an excuse for their lack of sprit. That is all going to change.

As of now we are no longer the nerdy school. We will no longer mock our school’s ef­forts. We will fight for our school. We will go to school events. We will support our school teams. We will love our school. We will take care of our school. We will stick up for our school when it gets into fights with big bully schools. We, the students, will be proud that we go to BSGE. Okay, now that I’m done making these proclama­tions let me tell you how we will up the school moral. As the school paper we feel responsible for the school moral. The BACC Rag has gone on a mission to make you love our school. We’ve got plans, big plans. Those include hosting party’s, or­ganizing grade football tournaments and possibly a t­shirt contest.
