This is our 10th Marathon, and although we have raised nearly $350,000 in the past 8 years, we still believe we can do more to support the miracles at Riley! We have nearly 200 students helping organize our marathon, and we are led by our group of 16 seniors who meet throughout the year to plan events to fundraise for Riley and coordinate the day of the Marathon!From 6 pm – midnight on April 11th, we hope to have 1,200 students from South and other area high schools commit to stand for those who can’t. We will dance, play games, listen to music, eat some great food, but most importantly, we will spend time with our Riley families and share their stories.Since our humble beginning, we have had so many high-achieving fundraisers that we wanted to recognize them somehow. In 2014, we added Miracle Maker hours for dancers who raise $250 or more. From 2-5 pm on April 11th, Miracle Makers get to spend more time getting to know the Riley kids, siblings, and families while doing special activities with the kids. We know that requests for donations never seem to end, but we hope you will share our passion for the miracles that happen at Riley every day and support Bloomington South’s Dance Marathon . . . It’s For the Kids!
The major focus of teaching and learning at BNTHS will be Project-Based Learning (PBL). Project-based learning brings together intellectual inquiry, rigorous real-world standards and student engagement in relevant and meaningful work. Many schools offer project-based learning experience for their students, but BNTHS is unique because students are thoroughly immersed in it.
