PROGRAMS OF UNITED WAY BEMIDJI

BACK PACK BUDDIES
While every child has access to nutritious breakfast and lunch during school, the same cannot be said for weekends and school breaks.

The Backpack Buddies program was developed to help ensure that children in the Bemidji school district have access to nutritious, non-perishable and easy-to-prepare food at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends and school vacations.

The food packs: The program provides backpacks filled with food that is child friendly, nonperishable and easily consumed free of charge. Average weekly menu: 2 entrees, 1 snack, 2 breakfast items, 1 vegetable, 2 fruits, and 2 milks, and 1 high protein. The pre-packaged bags are purchased at around $4.18 each through North Country Food Bank.

The food packs are discretely distributed to children, as best determined by the school, on the last day before weekends and all scheduled school breaks/holiday breaks.

More than 200 Bemidji area students that have been referred by school staff, as experiencing food insecurity or hunger, are enrolled in the Backpack Buddies program.

The program is currently running at JW Smith, Central, Lincoln, and Solway Elementary Schools, with emergency packs provided through the District’s Homeless Liaison at the Bemidji Middle and High Schools.

COATS FOR THE COMMUNITY
Each year The United Way of Bemidji Area requests donations of clean, gently used men’s, women’s, children’s and infant’s coats, snow suits and other winter accessories for its “Coats for the Community” program to help keep those in need warm and dry during the winter. Approximately 3,000 articles are collected and distributed each year in October.

HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR KIDS
The “Holiday Gifts for Kids Program” is a special community event for United Way of Bemidji Area and the event planning committee. It is co-sponsored by RP Broadcasting stations, Paul Bunyan Communications, and caring community volunteers who help organize the event.

Each year more than 1,100 children, ages 0-16, experience a joyful Christmas thanks to the generosity and kindness of others. Parents or legal guardians are required to sign-up to participate in the Holiday Gifts for Kids program, and on the distribution day they get the chance to “shop” for a gift for their child. In addition, each family will receives a board game.

SOMEONE SPECIAL VOLUNTEERS
United Way of Bemidji Area partners with Ken K. Thompson Jewelry, KB101 Radio, and The Bemidji Pioneer, to recognize the value of volunteerism.

Red Lake Elementary School (RLES) and the Early Childhood Center (ECC) is an indescribably amazing and important place! Within these two buildings, over 700 precious young lives spend a good portion of their day! With that in mind, it is very, very important that your child loves school! Truly, there is very little that is more essential than for a young person to have a rich and enjoyable school experience.

Every one of our students has wonderful hopes and dreams and deserves a school experience and environment where they feel the respect and appreciation and care of staff and fellow classmates while they learn and grow!
We look forward to a great year! The Red Lake Elementary School and Early Childhood Center continues to emphasize and implement Responsive Classroom (RC) principles and practices. RC provides a structure for us that promotes a school environment that is challenging and safe, and where kindness and respect for one another are paramount in importance.
Our theme for 2017-2018 at the RLES is “Heroes in Training!” We like this theme very much as we can emphasize all year that we are heroes to our classmates when we help them with their school work, when we are a buddy to them when they are down, when we help them to behave, when we are kind and thoughtful, and when we are not a bystander in a bully situation. The opportunities for us to be heroic every day are endless!
Our web site is constantly changing. We try to keep it current with pictures, newsletters and educational links. This can be a challenge as the school days can be so busy! However, we are trying!
