Eagle Extravaganza is Huge Success

On Friday, Sept. 8, Fort Bend Christian Academy celebrated Eagle Extravaganza 2017, an all-school event full of fun for the whole family!

Attendees enjoyed a DJ, bounce house, obstacle course, Kona Ice truck, lawn games and more. FBCA football took on The Woodlands Christian Academy, and Swoop, FBCA’s mascot, helped spread school spirit.

Contributions to Hurricane Harvey Relief 

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the event also provided multiple ways to support and donate to the FBCA Disaster Relief Fund. In partnership with Second Mile Mission Center, an organization that helps Fort Bend County residents in poverty and crisis, FBCA accepted physical donations such as cleaning supplies. “FBCA Strong” t-shirts were available for purchase and cash donations were also accepted at the gate and at the beverage tent.  

“It was great to have an opportunity to come together after a stressful time and focus on all we have to be grateful for,” Nicole Bowles, Director of Advancement said. “We are thankful that our families help each other and that Woodlands Christian also participated. Our school community will greatly benefit from so many generous donations.” 

More than $33,000 was raised for the FBCA Disaster Relief Fund which will directly benefit FBCA families, faculty and staff affected by the storm.

Every donation—regardless of the size—made a difference. Fifth grade students Brianna Lemon, Ashley Huber and Sophia Polasek made and sold jewelry and glow-in-the-dark molded figurines at the event. They raised $30 dollars and saved $10 so they could buy more craft supplies and continue to raise money for the fund.
