The Broadview Wildlife Federation has invested in the children and youth of the community by donating a large portion of its fundraising revenue to activities and resources for students at Broadview School.
Broadview Wildlife funded all of the equipment and instruction required for faculty at Broadview School to begin teaching students International Target Archery. On Feb. 29, Principal Jesse Bradley joined Teachers Kayla Hanson and Chris Chudyk, along with Caretaker Pete Ottenbreit, in the instructor certification clinic.
The faculty plan to teach archery in the Grade 4 to 12 gym classes and hope expand the sport into an extracurricular activity in which community members can help coach and instruct the students.
“Our school could not have added this excellent program without the support of the Broadview Wildlife Club,” Principal Jesse Bradley wrote in an email. “It is these kind of partnerships that make it possible for our school to offer such great programs (to) our students. Our mission statement is Learning and Growing Together, and when community organizations like the Broadview Wildlife club work with us, we all benefit.”
In addition to the $4,500 allocated for the funding of the Archery program, Broadview Wildlife also donated money to Broadview School for its playground, football team and school reading program.
