Welcome to Academic year 2009-2010!! As many of you already know, the counseling department has expanded!!
We want to welcome Ms. Granger to Bodine High. Stop by to say hello to her in room 105D if you have not already
done so. We have a “blog” of our own www.bodineguidance.wordpress.com that will be updated each month. You
can also access it through our school’s website at www.bodine.phila.k12.pa.us and click on either “Programs” or
“Students” and scroll down to “Counselor’s Corner”. There is information, like some of the listings below, which
will remain for your interest and perusal at your leisure. Some programs come to you because our school has been
invited to either nominate students or simply spread the word about an opportunity. Visit the websites links
provided and make sure to check eligibility requirements and adhere to deadlines. Bulletin boards in and around
both counselors’ offices display opportunities and copies of applications or websites are available to students in our
offices. - Mrs. Bassman and Ms. Granger
