BWHS is very excited to welcome National Diversity Consultant, Marlena Gross-Taylor to our building Wednesday and Thursday, February 14 and 15. Parents—we will be hosting a parent forum on Wednesday evening at 6:00. We would love for you to join us and share your thoughts on how we can continue to make Big Walnut High School a better place for all students! Additionally, parents please consider filling out this 10 question survey, before Wednesday, to give Marlena some information about developing a diversity plan unique to Big Walnut High School.

While she is here, Marlena will be meeting with staff, students and parents to help us map out a strategic plan and areas of focus for our student body. We sincerely hope you will consider giving us your input and joining us Wednesday night!
