"Food for Fines" a HUGE Success!

posted Feb 7, 2018, 6:04 PM by Holly Wieber

This January, BMS students participated in our annual food drive to help stock up the Becker food shelf.  Students & staff members brought in canned, boxed, or personal care items, which helped wipe out library fines for themselves or others.  Many kids brought in food "just because", and we were able to collect over 350 items, which will be brought to the food shelf on February 14th. Thank you to all our staff and students for making this the most successful drive yet!

Penny Challenge

posted Dec 22, 2017, 8:52 AM by Jason Borgstrom

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
