Community Service Projects

BFCCPS students participate in a variety of community service project each year.  At BFCCPS, we believe that Community Service can be a chain reaction that leads to a lifetime of students, faculty and parents doing good, and making impacts in their community, country, and world.
All students participate in three types of service each year, service to the school, service to the local community and a worldwide service project.

Our kindergarten and grade five students complete an annual leaf raking project. This shows that even the littlest members of our community can make a difference.

First Graders participate in programs such as Meals on Wheels and Valentines for Veterans.

Students in grades 2 and 3 visit with guests of the Franklin Senior Center and residents at the Forge Hill Nursing Home.  

Fifth Grade students held a food drive for the Rhode Island food pantry, and participate in the Holiday Mail for Heroes.

The sixth grade students hold a winter coat drive with Cradles to Crayons and raise money for Heifer International through a “punny” Valentine Sale.   

Students in Grades 7 & 8 assist weekly with recycling for the entire building.  They also participate in local spring cleanups in coordination with local Park and Recreation departments.

Our whole school participates in the Santa Foundation to make the holidays a little brighter for families in need.

The school community worked together to raise money for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico through a variety of monthly fundraisers during the 2017-2018 school year.

It is our hope that given a wide variety of service experiences during their time at BFCCPS that students will develop good service habits for life.

If you have any questions about any of these projects, or would like to know more about Community Service at BFCCPS, please contact the Head of School, Joseph Perna,via e-mail at
