Beaver Local School District is hosting a community fundraiser on Monday, February 20 from 6 am to 9 pm. Bob Evans will donate 15% of each bill to Beaver Local if you have the flyer in hand. It is very important to note that 15% will not be donated from every check just because you ate there. You must let your server know you are there for Beaver Local and show them your flyer. You can bring a paper copy of the flyer or show your server the picture of the flyer at the top of this story for a donation to be made if you do not have a paper flyer.
Beaver Local Schools Superintendent Mr. Eric Lowe came to realize that as of late, our school rivals have been doing fundraisers promoting businesses in our local area. He thought that by doing a fundraiser at Bob Evans, he could not only benefit the business but benefit the school too. All the funds from the fundraiser will be going directly to benefit the students of Beaver Local, with application ranging from buying google applications for student iPads or even as far as 3-D printers.
Mr. Lowe has been at Beaver Local for years. He was first an elementary teacher then he became principal in 2014. This year was his first year being superintendent and he has many future goals for the school district. One goal Mr. Lowe has for the district is to better utilize technology in the district. Beaver Local students are already exposed to some of the best educational technology out there, but he believes there is always more we can be doing and learning. Mr. Lowe also is passionate about creating a school where kids want to run into the building to learn in a meaningful and fun way. Mr. Lowe wrote a book called Your School Rocks with coauthor Ryan McLane which it discusses ways in which social media can positively affect schools. The book also explains how social media use by school districts can show outsiders the hard work and dedication happening inside a school.
Mr. Lowe’s passion for education can be seen all throughout Beaver Local and is even being spread to other educators across the country through his conference presentations and book. Only time will tell what impact Mr. Lowe’s optimism and passion will really bring to the district, but this fundraiser is a great way for the Beaver Local community to support the students of the students of Beaver Local.
We hope to see you at Bob Evans on Monday with your flyer in hand to have 15% of your bill donated to Beaver Local School District.
