Shoe Drive

Calling all BBE Families!

SHINE Club's Service Learning Committee is collecting NEW & GENTLY USED children's TENNIS shoes to donate to Mission Northeast*. This collection will help prepare Mission Northeast for their client's back to school shopping needs. There are many ways to participate:

- donate gently used shoes from your child's closet

- ask neighbors for gently used shoes

- purchase a new pair of shoes to donate

- donate a gift card to a local shoe store

Please consider providing support in one of these ways. All students will place their donated tennis shoes in the labeled bin at the front or back arrival areas. Let's go Bears!

We appreciate your support!

BBE SHINE Club, Service Learning Committee

*Mission Northeast serves clients in Kingwood and surrounding areas covering 800 square miles and 11 zip codes. They provide food, clothing and household items to families in need while also building relationships with them by getting to know them and helping them above and beyond their basic needs.

BBE Expo

Our annual BBE EXPO will be May 18, 6:30-7:30 pm. ALL students are invited to participate. Kids can present any project or research they are working on. It's a great opportunity for our learners to shine so please consider participating and encouraging your kids to join in the fun!

Summer Resource Family Night May 11

Please join us, and spread the word about our first Summer Resource Family Night on Thursday, May 11, 2023 from 6:00pm - 7:30pm at Summer Creek High School.

The goal of the event is to connect community members to summer safety resources, and share information about summer camps, youth employment, physical activity, and overall wellness. We will soon be delivering posters to display on your campuses.

*Please let us know if you're aware of organizations that are offering summer camps or youth employment opportunities and would like to have a table at the event.
