SkillsUSA Highlight


SkillsUSA students, Skyler Schrader, Ryan Ward and Logan Ringley and their advisors Charlotte Covington and Mike Benton recently hosted a toy drive at the Birdville Center of Technology and Advanced Learning (BCTAL). They allowed a two week window to gather donated toys. These students helped organize the unwrapped toys. All programs at the BCTAL participated, and more than 250 toys were donated by the teachers and their students. On Dec. 18, all the toys collected were delivered to the Community Enrichment Center to help children who would otherwise not have Christmas. 

Providing positive, accurate and timely information and support is the goal of Birdville ISD's Communications Department. Be a part of the latest and become a fan of BISD on facebook.
