Adopt-A-School is a program of the Scottsbluff/Gering United Chamber of Commerce where area businesses and local schools team up to promote education.
Schools are partnered up annually with area businesses and collaborate on various learning and community service projects. Below are some examples of Adopt-A-School Projects in SBPS. 2012-2013 partners are encouraged to Contact Us with projects and pictures and we will include them on this page.
