Extra-Curricular Activites

BT students are encouraged to be well-rounded individuals by developing their talents in a variety of extracurricular areas. They broaden their horizons while building community as they celebrate holidays, prepare and attend special assemblies, and participate in field trips and overnight programs. Student Government, school publications, theater, instrumental and vocal performing groups, and a full range of interscholastic athletics for girls and boys offer numerous opportunities for self-expression, teamwork, and leadership. A variety of service projects provide avenues for living the Jewish values of tzedakah (charity) and chesed (kindness) that our students learn in class.

    The purpose of this organization is to promote and recognize outstanding scholarship, service, character and leadership.
    • Scholarship - Students must demonstrate outstanding scholarship by maintaining a cumulative, combined weighted average of 3.9.
    • Service and Leadership - A student must demonstrate leadership and commitment to service by being a leader in one school organization or by being an active participant in two organizations. One of the two may be a sports team. One activity may be outside of school but the student must demonstrate strong leadership qualities. No student who has been the subject of a disciplinary action during the first trimester will be considered for membership, and all members must complete the community service requirement each year.
