  • BFMS Jar Wars:  A Huge Success!

    The Ben Franklin Middle School Student Council’s “Jar Wars” fundraiser was a huge success this year, with students and staff raising $1860.00 to help make the holidays brighter for those in need.  The money was raised during the week before Thanksgiving and will provide gifts to 62 Valparaiso Community School students.  The event is one of several fundraisers conducted at Ben Franklin Middle School.  The school will host its first-ever talent show at 6 p.m., Friday, December 12, in the school auditorium.  The  event is free to those who bring a can of food.  All donations will be donated to a local food pantry.
