Success Beyond the Classroom


We're so excited to gather with our favorite Red Shirt Volunteers again in 2021-2022!

After having to switch over to virtual programming last year, we are ready to get back to the in-person events that we love for 2021-2022.

As the school year begins, we are closely monitoring the pandemic and learning how school field trips and extra curriculars are safely taking place. SBC will follow MDH and CDC recommendations that promote health and safety and mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission. As events get closer, we will update all participants on specific safety protocols.
