Welcome to BHS Model Congress


Welcome New BHS MC Members 2008!
Congratulations to the almost 200 BHSers that have been selected to the BHS Model Congress program. The selections reflect varying degrees of positive feedback and potential as future bhsmc delegates expressed from your peers, teachers and yours truly. If you have not stopped by Petela's room to pick up your class status and membership list do so asap. Soon both documents will be on the website. <br /><br />Meetings have been underway last week and this week for primarily officers and newly chosen Princeton MCers--almost 40 total so far with fingers crossed for a dozen more. <br /><br />Yale MCers will be getting their invitations/info this week and I need to know by next Tues the 9th if you are definately going or not so I can choose students off the waiting list. <br /><br />Again, if I do not receive your parent approval slip and deposit for PMC or YMC by next Tues 9th there is a good chance you will be replaced by a patiently perseverant praying Bhs MCer on the waiting list! <br /><br />Letters are also going out this week to all officer parents with some essential MC info and an opportunity to send your child to an MC in San Francisco from January 23rdish-- 27th; cost will be about $750 -- if we get enough interest and deposits, 10 would be minimum, we will most likely go, pending approval by the BOE of course. The dates for this model conference are favorable this year -- they are the week after midterms and I don't have the pressure of preparing for our Whiffenpoof concert in February since we are having it this year in late April.<br /><br />The focus this week and next will be writing your bills, fact sheets and opening speeches, due for both PMC & Yale MC by Monday October 15 -- hard copies and email to Petela by that date and also bring 25 copies of your bill & fact sheet (try to keep to one page each, adjust margins/font accordingly) for the practice sessions that week and the next two.<br /><br />Meetings for Octob/Nov are as follows (All begin promptly at 7:15 and end about 8:30) --<br />Wed 3; Tues 9, Wed 10, Th 11 (only for PMC & YMC delegates--focus bill writing);<br />Mon 15, Tues 16, Wed 17 (again only for PMC & YMCers--focus bill presenting/debating)<br />Mon 22, Tues 23, Wed 24, Th 25 (PMC & YMC AND any bhsmc members invited)<br />Tues 30 & Th 1 November (PMC & YMC AND any bhsmc member invited)<br />Mon Nov 5th (YMC delegates only and any YMC shadows)<br /><br />Congratulations again to all the newly chosen BHS MCers. You've passed your first test, now it is up to you to come to as many meetings as possible, and participate too if you can muster up some courage and confidence! The more you make yourself known and present to BHS MC officers and Petela, the better your chances to attend MConferences in the future. Again, your BHS MC future is now in your hands and feet and voice -- be bold, be responsible, be confident... carpe diem.<br /><br />Petela
