How do I officially sign up?
Once you log either your fitness hours or service hours, your child(ren) will receive their first Project Becoming our Best wristband and your family will be considered members of the program.
What grades can participate in Project Becoming our Best?
Students in all grades can participate! All can log fitness and service hours and get the rewards, even if the volunteering and/or fitness happens independent of Project BoB opportunities.
What is different about volunteering with Project Becoming our Best?
Volunteering with Project BoB is not just about logging hours, it is about learning more about the needs of our community. Every opportunity will have resources and discussion questions that will help everyone learn about the organization and their cause, and reflect on the experience. Even the Marathon Challenge running club will have a short kindness challenge/reflection included.
Which shirt do I purchase?
There are two shirt options for Project BOB. There is a gray soft fit shirt that students and parents can wear to promote the program at school and while volunteering within the community. We do encourage you to wear this shirt for community service events that you sign up for on our website. It will help identify members of Project BOB from BBES to the nonprofit charities where we will be serving. Think of it as our very cute uniform! This shirt is $10. You can find the order form on our main page.
3rd-5th grade students that will be participating in the Marathon Challenge need to purchase a blue dri fit shirt to wear on Mondays. The back of this shirt will be used to mark completed running laps. This is how we will keep track of students that finish the full 26.2 miles. This shirt is $15. You can find the order form on our main page.
When is the Marathon Challenge Running Club?
Project BOB meets on Mondays at 7:20am for the Marathon Challenge. The Marathon Challenge is for 3rd-5th grade students only. Please drop your student in the back of the school, near the cafeteria. They will need a hall pass to be admitted into the school. For the first few weeks, our hall pass will be their Marathon Tag. Students will pick up their tag on the first day of running - September 25th, 2017. Staff will be available in the cafeteria to distribute the Marathon Tags. Once our shirt order arrives, the Marathon Challenge t-shirts will be your student's hall pass. Please order a blue dri fit shirt if your child wants to complete the challenge of running 26.2 miles. The t-shirt order form is on our homepage.
How do I view and sign up for Family Volunteering opportunities?
Can my kids volunteer alone?
No. Since the focus of Project BoB is to strengthen families and communities, children will need to be accompanied by at least one parent/guardian.
