    Last Day of School!

    May 23rd

    Dismissal at 12:00 noon

    The Bearden Middle School Foundation announces the 'Shop With Scrip' fundraiser. The purpose of the Foundation is to help sustain Bearden Middle School's 1-1 technology initiative. The Foundation presented the school with a $25,500 check in the Fall which went to purchase iPads, chargers and cases to supplement the school's supply. The iPads purchased with these funds went into immediate circulation in the school giving students and teachers access to several programs that provide immediate academic feedback for students and teachers as well as 21st century opportunities to learn, grow and prepare students for the future. Shop With Scrip is a way to put the money you spend every day to use earning money for the school. You purchase gift cards at no additional cost from over 750 organizations which give anywhere from 2% - 16% back to the Foundation to continue helping the school. Check out the website at beardenmiddleschoolfoundation.org or contact virginia.fletcher@knoxschools.org to learn more about this great opportunity!
