Don’t miss Give2Grow 2016!
Give2Grow is a powerful 24-hour fundraising competition that brings together people who care with causes that matter in Phelps County. This event, hosted by the Phelps County Community Foundation, allows you to support groups and organizations creating meaningful impact. Your gifts will grow when they receive a pro-rated share of the matching pool.
This year, Bertrand Community School is promoting two Give2Grow projects. The first is for the Bertrand Community School Foundation that helps support graduating seniors with scholarships. Donations are needed in order to keep scholarships available.
The second project is for the new Bertrand Community School Fitness Center. This project began through a need for a local “work out center” for the members of the Bertrand Community and needed weight room improvements for the athletes and students at the Bertrand Community School.
Both projects are very worthy causes. Please consider giving on Nov. 17.
October 10th-14th was Fire Prevention week at BHS for the elementary kids. During that week, the students learned about how to stay safe around a fire and how to not play with matches to start a fire. The fire department handed out stickers, pencils, and suckers to kids in 1st-3rd grade.
On Friday October 14th, the fire department put on an assembly for 1st-3rd graders to teach them about fire safety. They showed the kids what a smoke detector sounds like, and what it means if it’s going off. Devin Benson modeled their bunker gear to show the kids what they look like, and to not be afraid of them.
“I hope they learn the hazards a fire can cause and when to take safety precautions,” says EMT Jessica Evans. “We want them to yell for help so it can help us locate them if they were ever in a structure fire.”
