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.

Noah has been with BSAC from the very start of our BASE program and joined us for Camp BSAC this past summer. He is an energetic, outgoing 3rd grader who was adored by each mentor at Stowers. He loved to be a helper and was also part of the Robotics team. Noah’s mom recently took a job promotion that relocated her and her family. Noah's last day with us was on October 30th , but Noah’s parents advised that he will definitely be back in a year or two. We are hoping to see Noah again for his last year in Elementary school! We wish you the best!

Students mix, measure, pour, and kneed to create fresh apple pancakes! This recipe combines familiar flavors to create a new experience for most. Pancakes were cooked on a griddle by supervisors before students were able to taste their creation.
