What does it mean to be a Brave? The Borden Braves are a collective group of individuals passionate about Borden students and staff, who come together for the betterment of the schools. Borden Elementary and Borden Jr/Sr High Schools are not just schools, they are a community; a community of teachers, staff, students, and parents who are willing to go above and beyond to see a child succeed. We are a community of individuals who will not only take care of our children, but your child as well. The Borden Braves will come together to celebrate achievements and to lend a helping hand. We are a community that embodies morals and ethics. This community will not only give your children a great education, but will teach them lessons about life outside of the classroom. We are a community that sees everyone as equals. This is a community where the upper class-men take time to interact with the underclassmen. This community is rich in pride and traditions. The Borden Braves are a community that welcomes anyone to become a part of our great experience.
This is just a small sample of what it means to be a part of the Borden Braves community. As an individual who attended Borden from Kindergarten through graduation, I have experienced first-hand what it means to be a part of something so wonderful. The smaller class size gives the students the advantage to not be a number, but an individual. The smaller class size gives those students who need a little extra help, the opportunity for more one-on-one instruction. The smaller class size gives the teachers the opportunity to truly know each of their students.
I have lived other places, but nothing can compare to the community of Borden. I have seen this community come together to help neighbors, to raise funds for Blessings in a Backpack, and to raise money for new playground equipment. And this community travels to support our sports programs. You will find us at Spell Bowls, Spring Flings, Christmas plays, band concerts, sporting events, and everything in between. You will see us in the stands supporting every student and applauding their efforts and accomplishments. Being a Brave is being a part of a family. Come join our community and be a part of something special! #onceabravealwaysabrave
