National Honor Society Scholarship Blood Drive
Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Bertrand Community Building

Donating blood is always a great way to help those in need. During a natural disaster, it becomes even more important. The Red Cross has had to cancel over 500 blood donations due the flooding in Nebraska. Let’s do our part!

By giving blood, not only will you be making an impact on the lives of others, but helping the Bertrand Chapter of NHS earn money for student scholarships.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the blood drive on April 9th! You can make an appointment by calling the school (472-3427) or walk-in!

National Honor Society INductions

You excel. You serve. You lead. You succeed.

On Thursday, March 21st, the Bertrand Chapter of National Honor Society will induct eight new members into their organization. The 7:00pm ceremony, in the old gym, will include former Bertrand graduate Tanner Nelson as guest speaker.

The public is invited to attend. There will be refreshments after the ceremony.

Congratulations Honor roll studentS!

BCSVSO Food Drive starts now! Elementary students, bring your first 5 items and receive a mini candy cane! Junior and Senior High school students: ask your teacher how many items to donate to receive a free homework day, no quiz day or monkey bread!
Students: the BCSVSO Food Drive is going on. We want to Kick Kidder out of his office with as many donated items as we can! Each time you bring an item to his office let him know by saying Kick Kidder Out! P.s. You are required to say it nicely.

The food pantry is in immediate need of all items for this holiday season. Classroom teachers are asking that you not buy them a personal gift this year but instead put these funds towards the purchase of non-perishable food items, cleaning products, laundry detergent or personal care items for the food pantry.    Please bring these items to school anytime between Monday  December 3rd  and Friday, December 14th.

Ideas for donated items include:  Box mixes Laundry soap/dryer sheets Deodorant, Peanut butter,   Toilet paper Shampoo/Conditioner, Canned fruit and vegetables, Dish soap,   Toothpaste & Toothbrushes, Soups,   Cleaning products,  Body Soap, Cereal, & Paper towels.

In addition, there is also a community savings account which has readily available funds to be used to buy perishable food items from the “Countryside Market.”  Money is  accepted  year-round and deposits into this account can be used whenever there is a need. Thanks to your generous efforts, families in the Bertrand area will have one less concern over the holiday season.

The elementary teachers would like to humbly thank all of you, in advance, for respecting their wishes to help with this benevolent project. 

All items will be added to help the BCSVSO food drive!!
