2,021 Books in 2021 Begins Soon!



BGHS Junior to Surpass Donation of 10,000 Books to the Community

Books for a Bright Future, a book drive coordinated by BGHS junior Clay Wallace, will soon begin a new chapter: “2,021 Books in 2021.” The new endeavor will benefit the entire Bowling Green Independent School District, with donations going to students and library collections across the five elementary schools, Bowling Green Junior High, and Bowling Green High School.



While Wallace hopes to collect more than 2,021 books for schools this spring, meeting this goal will surpass a total of 10,000 books collected and donated to the local community since his initial Eagle Scout project in 2018.



For the campaign, Wallace is seeking new or gently used books, ranging from board books to adult novels appropriate for teenagers. He is a member of the BGHS Beta Club and is partnering with both the BGHS Beta Club and BGJHS Junior Beta to assist with collection efforts. Book bins are available for donations at BGHS, Potter Gray Elementary, and McNeill Elementary Schools, and additionally, an Amazon wish list has been created for anyone who would like to support this project by purchasing new books: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/33BZSCSM8ALV5?ref_=wl_share.



Wallace hopes to distribute the books to Bowling Green Independent Schools at the end of the spring semester.

For more information from Clay Wallace, email: booksforabrightfuture@gmail.com.

Super Saturdays

Big picture

Virtual Winter Super Saturdays is open for registration, and we have 9 classes for children in grades 1-6 that feature the minds-on, hands-on learning for which The Center for Gifted Studies is known.

Since classes are offered online, anyone can join no matter where they’re located. As one past participant said, “Super Saturdays allows me to work with other kids who think like me but differently from me too. It helps me grow.”

Register here: https://gifted-studies.com/wss21

Super Saturday 6th Grade


8) How to Beat Up a Bacteria: Introduction to Infections and Cures, grades 5 & 6, Matthew Howell - Everyone has been given a firsthand look at science and history during this pandemic - what better time to explore the microscopic world that lives in and around us? We’ll do a deep dive into looking at bacteria, viruses, and fungi as well as getting a basic understanding of the cells in our own bodies. We’ll meet the “Bullies” (bacteria, viruses, and fungi can make us sick and how to know the differences), “Fighting Back” (how our bodies fight invaders), and “the Reinforcements” (things humans have created to help us beat infections, and some cool futuristic solutions). Heads up: gross images will be shown in this class! For class you will need a device that can take pictures and digitally share them (Camera phone, tablet, digital camera, etc.) Also a second internet connected device would be handy for live online games, but is not required.
