    Message from the Principal:

    Let’s Breathe Some Light Together


    I would like to thank staff, students, and families for a smooth and successful first term.  We at Bioscience High School appreciate all that our students’ families do to make sure students are here on time, prepared, and ready to learn. I also want to thank our teachers, support staff, and classified staff for the many hours of behind the scenes—and on stage—work that goes into starting the year successfully.  From making the school clean and safe, to providing nutritious food, to greeting students in the office, it takes a village to give students a positive learning environment so that the magic can happen in the classroom. Our staff works tirelessly to make Bioscience the unique, shining beacon of light that it is.

    Speaking of light, our school has united around a theme, which helps us to reflect on how we contribute to the light in our world—rather than to the darkness we have experienced with recent shootings and violence. As dragons, we have the special ability to breathe fire to illuminate dark places.  We can choose to use our fire to harm or to help, and we choose to help.  Therefore, we encourage each other to “Breathe a little light into the darkness.”  It is not always easy to remember to choose light over fear and primal reaction, but it is the antidote that we all have the power to harness if we are intentional.  We invite you to join with us to spread your light, compassion, and help into the world that so desperately needs it.

    We are off to a great start this year, and I look forward to continuing to get to know you and your students as we work together to make 2016-17 a bright and productive school year.

    Gratefully Your Principal,

    Holly Batsell
