10/16 – Our Grade 11 US History students had the honor of seeing Hamilton on Broadway.  Students first watched winning submissions from the “Who Tells Your Story?” curriculum from different schools, including BCS.  Then we were treated to a Q&A with the Hamilton cast.  Finally, the grand performance was the matinee production of Hamilton!   Everyone LOVED the show!
