The BHS Foundation raises and stewards fund and other community resources to support BHS in providing exceptional opportunities and experiences for our students.
The BHS Foundation continues to work closely with our district to identify and target critical resources and instructional support. We are supporting rigorous, robust, engaging, and inspiring learning that meets the BHS standard of excellence. We are funding and delivering materials and programs necessary to meet the demands of high-quality learning for our children online or in the classroom.
This school year, we have funded Social Emotional Learning initiatives such as professional development for BHS staff, the PrepareU program for BHHS students, and a Bloomfield Youth Assistance mental health initiative.
In the fall of 2020 we implemented a new grants program, Lightning Grants. These smaller grants are awarded on an accelerated timeframe and support teachers with distance learning. In our first round, we awarded 33 Lightning Grants for online learning subscriptions, social-emotional learning resources, STEM kits, student manipulatives, online assessment tools, and more.
Your donation to the BHS Foundation enables us to increase our support of BH schools during this unprecedented time. We have a number of ways for you to help:
- Make a general donation to the BHS Foundation
- Direct your gift to one of our special programs:
- Therapy Dogs for our schools
- The Cynthia von Oeyen Fund (Recognizing Cynthia's 20+ years with BHS, initially supporting performing arts.)
- The newly established BHS Endowment (Currently running a Matching Campaign.)
- The Compass Fund for Social Emotional Health
Thank you for your support. Together, we will embrace today's changes and challenges for our students, staff, and schools!
Every student is a reason to give!
