Bright Futures Harrisonville strives to help students achieve success by matching student needs with resources through partnerships between the schools and the community.
Those partnership areas include faith-based, social/human services, businesses, and parents and volunteers will be asked to give of their "time, talent, and treasure" to help children.
The Bright Futures initiative goals are to build relationships, provide for individual needs, and ensure every child has the tools they need to be successful students who in turn become productive and self-sustaining citizens, loving parents, responsible neighbors, and outstanding employees.
Through its organizational structure, Bright Futures provides a framework for expanding current programs such as the Food 4 Thought backpack program, Stuff the Bus school supply drive, and Cats Closet, as well as initiating new programs to support students.
Bright Futures strives to meet individual student's basic needs using Facebook as a rapid response system. The goal is to meet any student's need within 24 hours. To become a fan, go to www.facebook.com/BrightFuturesHarrisonville
Bright Futures Councils at each school include representatives from each of the partnership areas and will meet regularly with school personnel to assess and develop plans to meet the needs of the school and its students.
