November Food Drive – BFMS Collects 1,951 Items!

IMG_2824 After a month long food drive to benefit the Our Place Drop In Shelter, The Student Council group at Bellows Falls Middle School collected a total of 1,951, surpassing their original goal of 1,500. In what has now become an annual event, BFMS students competed by advisories to see which group would collect the most cans as an incentive for the food drive. 

 “Think of all the people this will help!” commented a fifth grade Student Council member as he passed along the food boxes during collection. This is the third year that Bellows Falls Middle School has a food drive during the month of November as a way of giving back to the community. Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our goal!

Sixth Graders Participate in Manufacturing Week

thumb_IMG_2550_1024In an effort to expose students to manufacturing career opportunities in the Connecticut River Valley, BFMS sixth graders participated in the Upper Valley Manufacturing Week on October 6. They visited Sonnax and VerMed.

Students got to experience a hands-on, “behind the scenes” tour of these local manufacturing facilities while learning the different roles of every person involved in the building process.

This Manufacturing Week trip was made possible through the collaboration of the Guidance Department of BFMS, the Middle School Outreach Coordinator at the River Valley Tech Center and the wonderful employees of Sonnax and VerMed.
