The gift baskets were put together by Beehive home rooms. Themes for the baskets include “Star Wars,” “Pool Party,” “The World,” “Movie Night,” “Things in Your Backpack,” “Sweet Treats,” “Entertainment,” “Mystery Box,” “All Things Chocolate,” “Pasta,” “Game Night” and “Superheroes,” among others.
Every student at Beehive will be given a raffle ticket. In addition, Beehive faculty members have been given some additional raffle tickets to give to students for their accomplishments and good deeds. Proceeds from the raffle will go to Beehive’s FIRST (an acronym for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge robotics teams. Beehive represented Utah in international FIRST LEGO League competitions in Houston, Texas April 18 through 21. In addition, Beehive will represent the state at another international competition to be held in Fayetteville, Ark. May 17 through 21.
