Breast Cancer Awareness Day


Friday, October 19th is Bronx Science’s Breast Cancer Awareness Day! Each year we choose a day in October to raise awareness about the disease and to honor and support Breast Cancer patients and survivors.


We hope to show our collective support in two major ways that you can participate in: first, wear pink! (Pink is the recognized color for Breast Cancer awareness, and we want to #PaintTheSchoolPink in solidarity.) Second: come to the back of the cafeteria (near the COSA office) during your lunch period to write letters to cancer patients from Montefiore Hospital who could use a kind word.


See you all then.

BLOOD DRIVE- SIGN UP NOW

On Friday, October 26th , Bronx Science will be hosting a blood drive in conjunction with the Red Cross. The drive will be held in the multi-purpose room next to the library from 8am to 3:45pm. If you are at least 16 years old by the date of the blood drive, you are eligible to donate & we need you!


Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood and this is an easy way to make a meaningful impact on your community. If you are 16 years or older, please help out! All blood donors will receive a snack after their donation as well as a sticker.


  1. To sign up for a time slot, go to this link.

  1. After your appointment is confirmed, form #1 must be filled out by 16 and 17 year old student donors and the form must also be notarized. You can get this done at a post office, bank or other places. Additionally, 16 year old donors must complete the Red Cross permission form for minors (linked as form #2 below), with some information about donating.


So to recap: all 16 and 17 year old donors must complete the school form (#1), and 16 year old donors must ALSO complete the Red Cross form (#2). Anyone 18 or older does not have to give any form, they only have to sign up for an appointment.


The form(s), along with a copy of your schedule should be turned in to Ms. Parness by Monday, October 22nd, otherwise you will not be able to donate blood. You can submit the forms and schedule to her mailbox in the main office, or at the COSA office (room 017A) in the back of the cafeteria.


If you are over 18, a parent, staff, or alumni donor, you may simply sign up for an appointment time online (no forms are required). Thank you all in advance for your help saving lives through this donation!


Thank you,

Tahira Hasan and Ayesha Khan

Student Coordinators, Red Cross Blood Drive






Advisory Board & NHC (Nutritional Health Council)
Hey Bronx Science,

Do you want to become more involved in the Bronx Science community? Well, now is your chance! The Nutritional Health Council and The Advisory Board are two councils open to the student body, where you are invited to sit with school officials, including Dr. Donahue, and discuss initiatives to improve our academic atmosphere!

Nutritional Health Council is a board that meets with our school dietitian, Ms. Mitchell, to evaluate the products and vendors in our school. We will discuss vendors and products we can add or change in our cafeteria, and by being a member of this committee, you are given the opportunity to represent your peers and their thoughts. We will be meeting 4th period once a month on Mondays or Wednesdays, and you MUST have fourth period free to apply.

Advisory Board is a committee open to the student body where we will discuss all aspects of our community and present ideas to improve Bronx Science. This extends to cleanliness initiatives, funding, events, feedback, etc., and is a way for the student body to stay up to date with changes in the school. By joining this board, you will be award an amazing opportunity to voice the thoughts and ideas of your peers and possibly implement them into our community. We will be meeting 4th period once a month on Mondays or Wednesdays, and you MUST have fourth period free to apply.

Joining the Advisory Board and Nutritional Health Council are two simple, but effective ways, for you to become more involved. Apply for the committee you are interested in using the links below, and we hope to see you there!

Interested in creating a new club

The application for starting a club is on the school website (here's the link: http://bxscience.edu/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=77762&type=d&termREC_ID=&pREC_ID=137979). This application needs to be completed and handed in before the start of winter break. All new clubs will undergo an interview process and will be notified if they have been approved for a DOE charter and begin meeting in the spring semester.

The LOP (League of Presidents) is currently compiling a list of teachers available to advise clubs, but you must have a signed advisor contract included in your new club application before submission, so we suggest you reach out to teachers you think might work with you as soon as possible.  If you have any questions free to email us at lop@bxscience.edu!
