Winter Food Fair

Come to the cafeteria on December 11th after school for the Bronx Science Winter Food Fair.  Come and support clubs by purchasing foods being sold - from cookies to sushi, juice, pizza, and more!  Hope to see you there.



Winter Food Drive  sponsored by City Harvest ends FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14TH. DONATE NOW! 

Our annual food drive runs from the week of November 12 through December 14, 2018! We urge you to donate any non-perishable food items you can. Nearly half of the population of New Yorkers struggles to cover basic expenses and are forced to choose between buying groceries and paying rent. We hope to alleviate some of this burden so please donate! 

The most helpful items you can donate are canned fruit, canned vegetable, canned proteins (ex. tuna or beans), peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, family sized packages of cereal, juice packs, and soups. 

Canned goods can be dropped off in the boxes that will be left behind the security desk in the lobby or next to the Lost and Found in the cafeteria. Please write your name and homeroom (either on a can or on an attached post-it note) so the donation can be credited to the correct person and homeroom! 


Last year, we hit our goal of 3,000 cans so let's do it again this year and continue the legacy! 



S.O. Clubs

Interested in creating a new club

The application for starting a club is on the school website (here's the link: http://bxscience.edu/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=77762&type=d&termREC_ID=&pREC_ID=137979). This application needs to be completed and handed in before the start of winter break. All new clubs will undergo an interview process and will be notified if they have been approved for a DOE charter and begin meeting in the spring semester.

You must have a signed advisor contract included in your new club application before submission, so we suggest you reach out to teachers you think might work with you as soon as possible.  If you have any questions email the LOP (League of Presidents) at lop@bxscience.edu

Pad and Tampon Drive

Project FIRE (Feminism, Inclusion, Rights, Equality) is hosting a pad and tampon drive starting on Monday November 19th to January 4th! Donations must be closed boxes of pads or tampons, they cannot be opened or singular products.

The donations will all go to victims of Hurricane Florence in North Carolina. Feminine hygiene products are very often neglected when people think of first aid donations yet they are just as important as any toiletry you may donate and can help ease the lives of girls and women who were affected by the hurricane. 

You may drop off donations in the COSA office in the back of the cafeteria, in room 311, or in the Can Drive boxes near the lost and found in the cafeteria. They will be collected and counted and as last time we have a goal of 100 boxes! 

If you have any questions or concerns please email frajmundc  at Bronx Science.
Thank you so much, and this holiday season let's make a difference! 

Best, 
Project FIRE
