In our inaugural school year at BASIS Independent Bellevue, there are incredible opportunities to build traditions that shape the culture of our community.

To celebrate the theme of giving this month, we kicked off our first community-wide food drive. The goal of the food drive was to collect 1,000 items for Renewal Food Bank, which is located in Bellevue.

“We are new to the neighborhood and wanted to establish relationships with community members,” said Ms. Temple, Director of Academic Programs. “Our goal was to show that we can unite our school community to make a positive contribution.”

For two weeks, BASIS Independent Bellevue Mountaineer families donated items each day from packaged foods to toiletries. By the end of the food drive, our community came together in a big way and donated nearly 1,050 items.

“The food drive helped out people in need during this time of giving," expressed Grade 6 student, Kexin M., Class of 2029. "Our state has many homeless families and what we give is never enough but we need to continue to help others in need.”

Thank you to all families for their contributions. We look forward to future opportunities for our school community to make a local impact.

To acknowledge the participation of our community in achieving over 1,000 items donated, students received a hot chocolate and marshmallow treat during their lunch.
