Hey there, Bauxite Miners! We wanted to give a quick update on the status of next year's senior high football program. There is currently a low number of students participating from the upcoming junior and senior classes; however, Bauxite is excited about the large number of participants and success seen in this year's junior high program. The district and coaches have taken every effort to increase interest in the football program by adding staff, purchasing new uniforms and helmets, creating promotional videos, upgrading current facilities, redoing the turf in the field house, and purchasing brand new workout equipment for our weight room. Just like other sports, football is a wonderful opportunity for students to participate on a team and build traits they can carry with them the rest of their lives. We want to thank the supporters of Bauxite athletics who attend games and participate in school activities. Bauxite is an amazing school district and community, and we're proud of all current, previous, and future Bauxite Miners.
Every year our 3rd graders take a field trip to Heifer Village and learn about things they can do to help end world poverty. They also collect a donation that they use to buy animals to be given as a way to support families all over the world. This year our students earned a record breaking $1,052.31! Students will vote on how they want to spend this money, and they will hand it over to Heifer International when they go on their trip this Thursday. Way to go 3rd grade team!!! #bebauxite
