Conference on Improving the Culture and Climate at Bloomington Graduation School: On February 1, BGS will host its first conference on Improving the Culture and Climate at Bloomington Graduation School. Members of the greater Bloomington community and BGS students will lead small-group discussions about hot-topics in high school: What does a civil tone look like? How does clothing contribute to the culture at BGS? What does a meaningful cellphone policy look like? What do I need from my teachers in order to improve or sustain my grades? How does our attendance affect the school climate? How can I contribute my expertise for clubs at BGS?
