BGJHS After-School Program

December Newsletter

A Word from the Supervisor

Hello parents,

With the holiday season fast approaching, we at BGJHS Afterschool are gearing up for fun. During the month of December, the highly anticipated winter party will take place. The party will be held the week of December 14-18. A specific date will be announced in advance. In order to raise funds for parties like this, we have implemented a general store, which sells extra snack items every day in afterschool. Students can bring money to purchase soda, chips, and other items. The proceeds will be used to buy food like pizza or sandwiches for the party. There also will be a sign-up sheet for parents who would like to donate other food items such as drinks, chips, cookies, etc. I hope that you and your children are just as excited about this party as I am. It will be a fun way to end the year!

Thank you,

Ms. Alexis Savage, BGJHS Afterschool Supervisor

Teen Angel Donation Blast - TODAY - Friday, Dec. 4

Teenagers are often a forgotten group for charitable giving during the holidays. Bowling Green-Warren County Teen Angel is a Christmas assistance program that tries to bridge that gap. Less-fortunate students ages 13 and older who are enrolled in a Warren County Public or Bowling Green Independent school are eligible for the program. This year we have more than 300 teens who need our help!

On Friday, Dec. 4 volunteers from VISION: A Multi-Agency Council, Crocker Law Firm and others will be collecting cash, checks and gift cards (Target, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Kohl’s, Meijer and Greenwood Mall). one hundred percent of the donations go to help teens in our area have something for Christmas.

All individual donations made that day will be MATCHED by Crocker Law Firm, are tax deductible, and support teens who otherwise may not receive any gifts during the holidays.

Come out and help give local teens in need a wonderful Christmas!
