On Saturday, April 6th, Northwest Elementary raised $900 during the Bowl for Kid's Sake fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters. The bowling team included Northwest Elementary teachers, Mrs. Allgood, Mrs. Cyr, Mr. Kiesling, Mr. Taylor, and Mrs. K. Williams.
The school also raised money by selling wooden benches and breakfast burritos. In addition, Mrs. K. Jones and Mrs. P. Williams' classes sold cupcakes, and Mrs. Cox and Mrs. Hubbard's classes sold bookmarks. Many donations were also received.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the nation's largest volunteer-supported mentoring network, making monitored matches between adult volunteers and children ages 6 through 18. Volunteers are given the opportunity to develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
