  • BFA Helps Fight Hunger During Homecoming Week

    Posted by Candi Vaughn at 9/29/2014
    Starting October 1, first period teachers will participate in a Food Drive competition to assist the Middle Tyger Community Center Food Pantry.  We would like get as much participation as possible as all the food collected will benefit our community. The holidays are upon us and there will be an increased number of families and individuals who need food assistance. Can food totals will be taken on the day of Homecoming October 24th. The teacher and class who collect the most items will win a free breakfast. Thank you in advance for helping our community care for one another.
