Food For Fines!

posted Feb 14, 2018, 9:58 AM by Megan Ramola

Students at the middle school had their best "Food For Fines" food drive EVER this January.  Students (and staff) brought in food to help restock Becker's food shelf after the holiday season.  Some used these donations to wipe out library fines, and many brought in donations to help others clear fines or "just because".  The generosity of the donations was overwhelming, and we were thrilled to bring 12 boxes of food (354 items!) to the food shelf on 
February 13th.

Teacher Professional Development with the help of our Students

The STAC Team aligned Google Expedition content (Virtual Reality) to curricular content they learned throughout their tenure at BHS. They taught their teachers how to utilize virtual reality in their classrooms. In addition, the STAC team switched roles with the teachers to give the teachers an opportunity to practice integrating this technology in an authentic simulation with real students. It is tremendous to see students helping staff leverage technology effectively and enhance student engagement.

Penny Challenge

posted Dec 22, 2017, 8:50 AM by Jason Borgstrom   [ updated Dec 22, 2017, 8:50 AM ]

7th graders participate in a Penny Challenge yearly at the Becker Middle School. Each Jumpstart (advisory or homeroom) researches and selects a charity to donate funds. It was announced at the Becker Middle School Talent Show that Ms. Feierabend's jumpstart won the week-long challenge. They chose to send the accumulation of all proceeds to the Sandy Lundberg Benefit Fund ($1,391.48). 

Before moving to Arizona to become the principal of Casteel High School, Sandy Lundberg was a former band director in Becker at both the middle school and high school. Sandy was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer this fall and has been unable to work. 

Our students continue to rally behind Sandy despite only meeting her for the first time via video chat this week. It is a tremendous privilege to deliver joy to a woman who continues to inspire many with her positivity and bravery in her fight with cancer.

Here is information about Sandy's benefit/GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/sandy-lundberg039s-fight

NHS State Service Project

posted Dec 18, 2017, 5:43 AM by Megan Ramola


National Honor Society's state service project this year is to raise money to help the Minnesota Association of Student Councils and Honor Societies raise $10,000 for Food for Kidz. As part of our efforts, we are doing multiple activities to raise money for this program as well as for our own local food shelf. Officially, our state service fundraising week is Jan. 15-19. Currently, we are trying to raise money through the sale of a Becker Spirit Wear t-shirt. The cost of the t-shirt is $10 (cash or checks made out to Becker Public Schools). The profit from the t-shirt will go entirely to Food for Kidz. If you would like to order a t-shirt please send the order form and money to Becker High School, attention: NHS (no youth sizes available)





Food for Kidz Mission.
Our mission is to bring awareness to hunger issues in the world by involving others in the participation of packing a nutritional meal supplement for distribution and also involve them in sustainability building to facilitate change; to expand the concept of children’s’ experiences beyond their vision of local to incorporate the world and to service, promote and educate other organizations to encourage their commitment for the purpose of making positive results in the fight against hunger.
