BGHS FCA and NHS Spread Some Cheer

BGHS FCA and NHS hosted the annual BGISD Preschool Christmas Party on Tuesday, December 8th. To spread some cheer this season, over 100 preschoolers were given toys this year at their parties. Our high school students and all those who donated made a lot of young Purples very happy this week.

Mr. Widener's Students Helping Others

Mr. Widener challenged his classes to help others this season and they took his challenge very seriously. All combined, students raised $675 to help shop for other students for Christmas this year as part of the Purple Angel program. Thank you to Mr. Widener and his classes!
