BPE Beta Club and Student Council Are Making a Difference!
I am so proud of my Jr Betas for completing our holiday service project We discussed what we could do that would last after the holidays to make a positive difference in our community So… From donated/collected toiletry items we created 55 grab and go bags to share w/ our local homeless/crisis shelters to provide those in need w/ these basic supplies like: soap, /body wash (even some conditioners), tooth paste (even some mouth wash) and other items Betas’ decorated these bags with positive messages “Take care, stay warm, thinking of you, you matter, etc) and happy pictures and tied them w/ a bow. They set up stations to get this all accomplished! Their organization and teamwork was amazing! Thanks to Ms Gosney for delivering them! M For student council-I am really proud of their hard work too: we are hosting a winter wear drive-collecting hats, mittens, gloves etc which will be used here to benefit those who need them We also hosted our 1st annual “Santa Laugh off” as part of our SOM-so fun! They are working hard for SOM to be student-led and yesterday they did a great job! Lots of practice is paying off!
