Souper - Bowl!


On Friday, February 1st, we are asking BHS students to show their “Souper” bowl spirit by bringing in canned soup to benefit our local food pantry & help our community families in need!

Soup & Twin Toasted Cheese Sandwiches with salad, fruit, milk and a brownie will be one of the many lunch options available to purchase that day.

We have a district goal of collecting 3000 cans…please help us make a difference!

*Staff and students are also encouraged to wear their favorite team attire*

Thanks in advance for your help and go Patriots!!!
