The first fundraiser for class of 2019 student council was our field trip to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. This raised some money for our class, and it was decided the next fundraiser would be a bake sale. Conveniently, the senior class handed off an extra fundraiser, a basketball tournament, to the freshman. It was decided that the fundraisers would be combined into a basketball tournament on St. Patrick’s Day with a concessions table selling baked goods and snacks left over from the field trip. This event is currently underway, and our student council group has split into publicity, logistics, sign-ups, and bake sale sub-committees. The tournament will be held on March 16th and 17th. Lastly, freshman delegates Samantha Leuke and Alison Martin will work with sophomore delegates to plan our semi.
The senior class student council has had a busy beginning of the year! We held Burlington High School’s first ever powderpuff football game, which was a huge success. The senior class planned and ran the pep rally the day before the Thanksgiving football game to get excited for the game and promote school sprit. On November 14th True North Coffee generously donated a portion of their sales to our class. Annually the class of 2016 has sold candy canes during the few weeks leading up to the holidays which we did for the 4th year this year! Currently, we are busy planning for prom on May 13th as well as the senior banquet at the end of the year, deciding on favors, DJs, and the menu. Also to look forward to we plan to host our 3on3 basketball tournament in the beginning of March.
The Class of 2018 Student Council is actively generating ideas, events, and fundraisers for the sophomore class. Even though our overarching goal is to raise money for future events, we are working to insure that our activities are enjoyable and creative. We are attempting to integrate the interests of a variety of students into one event. In doing this, we have decided to hold a Battle of the Bands. As of now, we are going full force on this project as well as having occasional meetings with the Class of 2019 to plan the semi-formal dance.
The Social Committee has paired up with the Toys for Tots project, and we need unused and unopened toys! These toys go to children who are from families that do not have the resources to give their children gifts for the holidays. The deadline is December 10th and every toy donation helps.
French Will be selling flowers and chocolates 2 weeks prior to February 14, or Valentines Day. These will be sold during the lunch. This is a great way to get a gift for your friends or significant other.
In partnership with Epson, Uno, and CCS New England, the BHS Student Council is proud to announce this fundraiser. Between March 2 and April 17, you can present this flyer at Uno’s Pizza in the Burlington Mall, and 20% of your order’s profit will contribute to Burlington High School’s fund in this contest. Make sure you show the BHS-specific ticket when paying. These tickets are valid at the restaurant, take-out, bar, and delivery!
What is the contest, you ask? Well, Every school in the Burlington district is competing to see who can generate the most funding. On April 17th, the school that has the most total profit from Uno’s will receive a brand new Epson projector. This projector, priced at around $4,000, is a monumental step in the world of educational technology, and the school winning this contest will surely put this to use in Burlington’s technology-friendly education environment.
There are flyers being handed out, however, this digital flyer can be present an infinite amount of times, by any person who orders Uno’s. So, if you are heading to Uno’s or getting delivery, you can print this out, or, better yet, save some trees and bookmark this page. You can present this flyer to the cashier directly on your smartphone!

The sophomore class will be holding a 3 vs. 3 basketball tournament begining Tuesday, March 11th, and concluding Thursday, March 13th. Each team consists of three players and $9 must be paid to a sophomore student council member by Tuesday, prior to the start of the tournament. The tournament will begin immediately after school ends and the rules are the same as regular basketball. All games will be half court games, and first to seven points wins (you have to win by two). Baskets are one point each, and a basket from behind the three point line is two points. Have fun!
