The purpose of the Student Ambassador Program is to allow Bishop Hartley High School students to interact with prospective new students and families both inside and outside of the high school. A complete list of duties and responsibilities is included in the ambassador application which can be found below.
Ambassadors are selected through an application process that takes place in May of each year.
Applicants to the Student Ambassador Program must be:
A Bishop Hartley senior, junior or sophomore in good academic standing with a minimum 3.0 GPA
Active in at least one service activity
A participant in at least one Bishop Hartley activity — athletics, arts, clubs, etc
Excited and willing to represent Bishop Hartley in the community with a positive attitude and spirit
Currently two Tuesdays a month at 2:50 p.m.
Become involved in theater either on stage or behind it. We have three productions each year: a fall comedy or drama, a winter musical, and a spring comedy or drama.
Varsity Letter Award Program
This is a very exciting opportunity for our drama members and the department itself. As in any sport or activity where Varsity Lettering is offered, students will need to put forth many hours, hard work and dedication to achieve a varsity letter in Drama. A student will not simply receive a letter for participation. Only the most dedicated, deserving students will earn a varsity letter. Students desiring to receive a Varsity letter in Drama must accumulate 100 points by the end of the Drama Season. Points will be awarded accordingly, based on the various roles (both acting and behind the scenes) and activities in which students can participate.
All students in good academic and conduct standing.
Fall and Spring plays, Winter Musical: every day during production.
Auditions for the 2019-2020 Fall Musical Little Women and the Winter Drama The Outsiders will be held Wednesday, September 11 and Thursday, September 12. Please view the audition packets with all the details regarding auditions and the performances. Also in the packets are forms that you should complete and bring with you to your audition.
Membership in National Honor Society is an honor bestowed upon students who have demonstrated exceptional scholarship, leadership, service, and character, and members are expected to continue to excel in these areas after induction. Students do not apply for positions in the society; rather, sophomores and juniors who meet the academic criteria of a 3.500 cumulative GPA are invited to submit additional information and then are evaluated by the Faculty Council. If the Faculty Council decides, by majority vote, that exceptional service, leadership, and scholarship have been clearly demonstrated, the candidate will be invited to be inducted into the Bishop Hartley Chapter of NHS. The chapter meets at least once per month and participates in additional projects that serve both the school and the surrounding community, including a tutoring program here at Hartley and our participation in the annual Evening of Excellence Auction.
Selection is based upon the following criteria.
Each candidate must:
Be a sophomore or junior in good standing;
Have at least one semester of residency at Hartley. This will be waived if the student has already been inducted into NHS at another school (written verification needed);
Have earned and hold a 3.500 cumulative GPA;
Complete and submit the Candidate Form;
Provide evidence of exceptional, significant and consistent voluntary service to the community;
Be evaluated by the entire faculty on the basis of demonstrated leadership and character;
Be recommended by majority vote of the faculty council after consideration of demonstrated leadership, service, and character.
The chapter meets at least once per month on Thursdays after school. Additional meetings take place in the fall to prepare for Induction and in the spring to prepare for the Evening of Excellence Auction. Participation in the life of the chapter is an expectation of membership, so attendance is important. Meeting dates are provided in advance.
Once inducted, members of the National Honor Society are expected to maintain the excellence that earned them membership in the organization. Specifically, members are expected to maintain a 3.500 cumulative GPA and to complete a minimum of 30 hours of approved and verified community service during each calendar year.
