Elmbrook schools offer top notch educational opportunities to students. However, the current economic and health crisis is creating a barrier for learning. Approximately 100 students are using hotspots to support virtual learning and regular homework needs due to a lack of reliable internet in their home. In an effort to provide a more efficient learning environment to students in need, Elmbrook is raising money to provide reliable internet access to keep students educationally connected.  

The BEHS Student Council and the BCHS Key Club, in partnership with the EEF, are working together to raise funds for this important initiative! Sponsorships are available. Donations are being accepted for our silent auction. Or join our virtual Fun Run/Walk November 23-30. T-shirts are included and timed perfectly for the Thanksgiving holiday!
