District 191 Bowls for Brainpower Event set for April 12

The eighth annual Bowls for BrainPower is set for Thursday, April 12 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the upper level of Diamondhead Education Center, 200 W. Burnsville Pkwy, in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.

This annual fund-raiser supports BrainPower in a Backpack, a largely student-supported community service program that provides weekend meals to elementary school students in need. BrainPower, which is funded entirely with donations, currently sends food home with more than 675 children each weekend during the school year in District 191.

BHS students are finalists in Prudential Spirit of Community Award program

Olivia Brammer and Egeziharya Yilma were selected to be among six Distinguished Finalists from Minnesota for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award. This is the highest honor for volunteering that any Burnsville High School student has attained.

“To have both of them selected for this award is amazing,” said Bri Ostoff, Community Education Youth Service Coordinator. “We can be very proud that Burnsville High School students have received this level of recognition for their community service.”

BHS 33rd American Red Cross Blood Drive a great success!

Thank you to all the students who donated blood at Burnsville High School's biannual blood drive on Thursday, May 19. One hundred students participated, 55 volunteered and over 200 units of blood were collected for the year. 

The students worked together for a great cause, helping build a safe and reliable blood supply and give patients in the community the gift of life. 

We look forward to seeing more students at next year's event.
