Benton and Haughton Schools Ring the Bell and Staff the Red Kettles
Shoppers in Benton and Haughton probably saw some familiar faces Saturday, December 13 in front of Brookshire's.
Faculty, staff and students from the schools in those areas gave their time during the holiday rush to ring the bell and staff the iconic red kettles on behalf of The Salvation Army.
Benton Elementary was well represented and Benton Middle Assistant Principal Debbie Gegg and her daughter took a shift, as well as Benton High Assistant Principal Teri Howe and her little boy.
Princeton Elementary Principal Nancy Doerner Devers and her staff and students were out in force at the Haughton Brookshire's, as well as T.L. Rodes Principal Lisle Meador and her faculty who handed out candy canes and well wishes. Platt Elementary Principal Cathy Turner and Assistant Principal Stephanie Cockerell enjoyed their time, too, ringing the bell and meeting and greeting shoppers.
Altogether, their efforts between the two stores amounted to $1,272.63 to help The Salvation Army with daily operating expenses and to make sure children in need are not without toys under the tree this Christmas.
A big thanks to Benton and Haughton schools for the way you care for others!
Helping the Food Bank Is A Win-Win For Three Bossier Schools
What a blessing it is to be a blessing to others.
Tens of thousands of pounds of canned goods and pantry items were donated to the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank by area schools for distribution in the community. To make it fun for students, a canned good competition was held and those collecting the most were honored.
Bellaire won first place in the Elementary Division, donating an impressive 6,846 pounds of food, which was the most of any school in Bossier or Caddo Parishes. Legacy placed second in the Elementary Division. Greenacres Middle School swept the Middle School category and claimed first prize.
Checks for $1,000 were awarded to first place winners and $750 to second place winners, courtesy of corporate sponsors Frito Lay, Pepsi and Brookshire's.
Congratulations, Bellaire, Legacy and Greenacres for a job well done. What a great feeling it is to know you filled such an important need and helped those without.
Bossier Schools Thank Our Veterans
There were moving Veterans Day assemblies, military appreciation breakfasts, inspiring speakers, special visitors, an enlistment ceremony, parades and presentations.
Bossier Schools paused to remember our nation’s veterans, both present and past, over the course of two weeks. At Stockwell Place Elementary, Veterans Day began with a special tribute from Carson Bourne that you can hear here.
Enjoy the slideshow of the many ways Bossier Schools said ‘thanks’ to the men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice and continue to defend our freedoms.
