Dream Team


2016-2017 DREAM TEAM


We are excited to continue to have Dream Team as a part of Buffalo Ridge and we are currently in the process of forming the BRE Dream Team for 2016-2017. We will be ready to get started soon, so look out for more information about our new team leaders, members, and activities coming soon!

DESCRIPTION
Dream Team is a commitment.

The Dream Team will consist of fifth grade students who have applied for this opportunity, interviewed, and been carefully chosen by select BRE staff.  The team will perform school/community service, conduct fund-raisers, and serve as one of the student leadership teams at BRE.
 
SELF-SUPPORTED

Dream Team supports its activities and expenses through fund-raisers. These are organized and run by the members, and promote self-direction, decision-making processes, organizational skills, the democratic process, and problem-solving skills.
 
COMMUNITY SERVICE
Since its inception, the primary focus of Dream Team has been giving back to our school community and our state and local communities.  Dream Team has also teamed with 9News to host a school wide health fair.  Our first act of charity will be collecting non-perishable foods at various times of the year to support the Salvation Army food drive.
 
CHARACTERISTICS OF DREAM TEAM MEMBERS

All Dream Team members agree to conduct themselves by a set of standards that sets them apart as examples of student behavior for the school community.  As Dream Team members, we believe we can and should give back to our community by helping others in our school and local communities.  As student leaders, we will develop skills and experiences for future leadership roles, confidence building, and conduct ourselves as ambassadors of Buffalo Ridge to students from other schools and communities.

MEETING TIMES

TBD for 2016-2017

ALEX'S LEMONADE STAND
One of Dream Team's annual causes is to provide support for Alex's Lemonade Stand - a national foundation that helps raise money to find a cure for all children with cancer. Through the generous support of our school and community we help make a difference in children's lives!

DREAM TEAM ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE
Each year Dream Team organizes an annual food drive to support those in need around the holidays. Please look out for more information on this wonderful effort.
