Giving BackAt BVT, we encourage our students to get involved and give back to their community and their school. Each year, numerous charitable activities and events are organized by student groups, clubs, and teams.In addition to helping others, community service furthers our mission by creating opportunities for students to be immersed in value-based learning. Giving back provides our students with additional soft-skills such as humility, integrity, and collaboration that will help them succeed in both their personal and professional lives.

Pink Ribbons - Pink is the color of the month! The students are decorating the cafeteria windows with pink paper ribbons for a $1. Come on down and make a donation and see which of the 4 grades can put up the most ribbons. You can also purchase a pink ribbon to wear for $1 during all 4 lunches. We hope you can join us as we cheer on our teams, wear our pink ribbons with pride, and support this very important cause.
Sporty’s Closet: A Goodwill-Style Center for Students
In 2014, the Student Council created “Sporty’s Closet,” an easily and privately accessible Goodwill-style center for students, faculty, and staff in need on our campus. Sporty’s Closet is setup to look like a true closet with hangers, drawers, hooks, and shoe racks for students to browse. Students can select gently worn clothing, shoes, and outerwear in addition to hygiene products and formal or semi-formal apparel for events like prom and homecoming. Sporty’s Closet is made possible by donations from students, faculty, staff, and community members.
If you would like to donate to Sporty’s Closet, please contact Megan Potenti at 508–529–7758 x2503 or Danielle Cann at 508–529–7758 x2521.
Treats 4 Our Troops:
Make A Delicious Donation
In a pretty sweet mashup of Halloween and Veterans Day, students and staff at BVT participated in the "Treats 4 Our Troops" program. Andrea Matellian (Class of 2016), an Upton resident and member of the SBHC student advisory committee, was credited with spearheading the candy drive, which raised a total of 155 pounds of leftover Halloween candy between November 3rd and November 12th. The candy was then shipped to members of the U.S. military stationed overseas.
Contact us for more information on how you can get involved with the Treats 4 Our Troops program.
