This also includes any general purpose labs and student machines in classrooms.

The Academy at C.F. Thomas recently collected $193.50 for one of their families who lost their home in a fire. Students purchased temporary tattoos for $1 each. The campus also donated clothing, blankets, and items for the families newborn. This is a great example of BISD staff and students modeling the district's CORE values.
