After School

On Thursday May 14, 2020, we will host our annual Bowls for BrainPower event. This year our bowls goal is 1,000 beautiful bowls and $15,000 in donations for BrainPower in a BackPack. We are looking forward to a continued success of Bowls as we celebrate more than 10 years of BrainPower in a BackPack and 10 years of Bowls for BrainPower.  Please mark your calendar for May 14, 2020.  Bowls for BrainPower is a community fundraiser in support of BrainPower in a BackPack. For more information, email brainpower191@gmail.com.

Bowls for BrainPower is a community fundraiser. Make a free-will donation to our hunger cause and receive a beautiful, hand-made pottery bowl and a meal of soup and bread at our annual event in April! Proceeds are used to buy food for children in ISD 191 (Burnsville-Eagan-Savage) through BrainPower in a BackPack. 

All the bowls are hand-made by students at Burnsville High School and community members. Bowls for BrainPower is a collaboration between Burnsville High School and ISD 191 Community Education. Many hands will make light work, and together we will make a difference in children's lives!

Students learn to make ceramic bowls, glaze them and help raise money to send children in ISD 191 home with a bag of food each weekend of the school year. No experience is necessary! We will teach you simple - but beautiful - ways to make a bowl using hand-building techniques. We meet after school (mostly on Tuesdays, but not every week) and four Saturdays a year. You do not have to attend every session, but it's a great way for you to earn volunteer hours, have fun, build a resume, meet new people and contribute to our community!

BrainPower in a BackPack is ISD 191's way to send weekend food home with children who might otherwise go hungry. Bowls for BrainPower helps raise funds for this hunger relief project, which is funded though donations. About 600 children receive BrainPower food each week.
