After-school students in the BSAC Community Club are making an impact by running a food drive for E.C.H.O. of Brandon, an organization striving to end hunger in southeastern Hillsborough County. The food drive will run from October 25th – November 16th for After-School All-Stars, and November 5th – November 16th for students in B.A.S.E. Students will bring all collected goods to E.C.H.O. on November 28th before taking a tour of the organization to learn more about their positive impact on those in need. The grade that collects the most donations before the deadline at each after-school location will enjoy an ice cream party!

We would like to thank LivyO's Catering for showing students in Culinary Club how to make turkey cucumber roll ups! This healthy snack is definitely a crowd pleaser. Be on the lookout for this recipe so you can make it again with your child at home.
Students learn fascinating features about spiders while making some of their very own! Craft options included making Popsicle spider webs, spooky Halloween faces, or wriggly spider hats! Who knew spooky could be so cute?
The Community Clubs from BSAC and Kingswood brought goodie bags to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Aviation Unit before learning about law enforcement. Students had a behind the scenes tour viewing aircraft and talking to deputies about their role in our community. This was a very positive experience for both the students and deputies involved. Community Club participants especially loved the canine demonstrations.
Students make their own roses out of pencils and coffee filters! This fun activity allowed students to express creativity while learning about the growing popularity of recycled art. This activity also covered information about various flowers that can be seen in our community.
