Career Day

2nd graders will be participating in a Career Day on Wednesday May 25th. We will be asking the kids to dress up in an outfit that represents what they would like to be when they grow up. We are also looking for a couple of volunteers from each class to come speak about their professions. If you are interested, please contact your homeroom teacher.

Food Drive

KC CLUB Feed Our Kids Food Drive May 16-20

Feed Our Kids is an organization connected with GRACE that provides lunch for kids during the summer. Some people may not realize that many kids depend on school to feed them lunch. When summer arrives some of these kids don't have an opportunity to eat lunch. The Feed Our Kids organization provides free lunch for kids in need during the summer months. Our Bransford Elementary PTA will be packing lunches to feed these kids on August 8, 2016. KC Club is collecting non perishable food items to fill these lunches. The grade level that collects the most food will receive EXTRA recess!

Items Needed: Jars of Peanut Butter and Jelly, Individual bags of crackers, cookies, and chips, fruit cups, water bottles, and juice boxes.
