BISD Celebrated 23rd Annual Lights On Afterschool

The ACE and STARS programs celebrated Lights On Afterschool on October 20 by decorating lightbulb-shaped cookies courtesy of Johnson's Bakery.

Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. Lights On Afterschool draws attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service, robotics, Tae Kwon Do and poetry—and discover new skills.
