Fund-raising Festivals Announced

Fall is a season full of vibrant leafs, giant pumpkins and special campus fund-raising festivals. Among others, The Bendwood School and Northbrook Middle School will host special fall festivals to raise funds for various school improvements and top bring together Spring Branch groups and communities.

The Bendwood Fall Bazaar will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 a.m.

This annual bazaar has been uniting families in the community for the past 25 years. The Bendwood School is the learning home to Gifted and Talented students and special needs students in the district. With tax dollars being stretched further each year, The Bendwood School relies heavily on bazaar proceeds to help fund teacher workshops, curriculum support, classroom resources and special student field trips.

With the holiday season near, more than 70 merchants are expected at this year’s bazaar. Raffles and giveaways will be held throughout the day. Food vendors are expected to include Skeeter’s Mesquite Grill, California Pizza kitchen, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt and the Kona Ice Truck.

While parents are shopping, children can stay occupied with the ever popular “Kids Zone.” The Kid’s Zone includes inflatables and carnival-inspired games ranging from face painting to cake walks. The Bendwood School is located adjacent to Town and Country Village and new City Centre at 12750 Kimberley Lane.

Northbrook Middle School will host its annual Fall Craft Market on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The market will feature crafts, direct sales, holiday goodies and gifts for all ages.

All proceeds will be used to benefits the school’s popular Art Department programs. Northbrook Middle is located at 3030 Rosefield.

  1. NMS ARTS MARKET is from 9am-4pm and will support the Arts Department to raise funds for an upcoming art fieldtrip as well as much needed supplies for the students! Vendors may contact or 713.251.4173 for more information and an application! We are excited to have this opportunity this year!

  2. I've watched the work that has gone into the NMS ARTS MARKET and have seen a lot of the items that will be sold and the vendors are terrific. It will be well worth your time to stop by and purchase early holiday gifts, support the students and their projects, and help fund the upcoming fieldtrip.
