Dear fellow Bruin families,
On behalf of the Bearden Middle School Foundation, I would like to welcome you to the 2022 – 2023 school year. Bearden Middle is a special place with engaged and passionate teachers, administrators, and staff.
In addition to the amazing staff, Bearden Middle is fortunate to have the support and engagement of our families. In 2017, the Bearden Middle School Foundation was established as a 501C3 charitable organization. Initially, the foundation was created to fund the school’s 1:1 initiative (device for every child), our mission is to raise funds to support, benefit, promote, encourage, and enhance the educational programs and facilities of the school.
This year’s spring fundraising efforts raised over $70,000 to support the renovation of the outdoor athletics field and the track. This work is underway!
We were able to raise this money and achieve our goal through generous donations and sponsorships from our school families, alumni, local businesses, and friends of the school. The fundraising push was celebrated at our annual Spring Shindig which featured food, drinks, and live music. It was a great night for all. Stay tuned for information about the Spring 2023 event.
To learn more about the foundation, please explore this website. And please feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions about the Foundation, the work we do, or how to get involved.
Let’s have a great year!
Kristy Altman, President, Bearden Middle School Foundation
