The mission of the Bidwell Junior High School Foundation is to provide resources for the enhancement of the academic, co-curricular and extracurricular learning opportunities for students at Bidwell Junior High School.
The Bidwell Junior High School Foundation’s goal is to help support teachers and school staff in their efforts to provide the best learning environment for our local youth. We were formed to raise funds to augment resources to improve student learning. Since our inception in 2005, shrinking school and department budgets challenged teachers and staff in their efforts to provide “more” with “less.” The foundation helped alleviate some of those shortfalls by approving over 190 classroom grants totaling $90,000 to enrich the education of thousands of Bidwell Junior High School students. Thanks to our donors, the foundation has funded grant requests for books, teaching supplies, science lab equipment, calculators, computer hardware and software, physical education equipment, digital cameras for art and yearbook, virtual reality headsets for virtual field trips, webcams used to create slow-motion videos to study cell division and basic school supplies and clothing for needy students. Additionally, the foundation has provided funds for sheet music, instruments and instrument repair for the BJHS Band.
