Friday Features



Typically the PTO hosts an in-school holiday shop where all of our Bears get to shop for gifts for the special people in their lives. As was done last year, our Holiday Shop will be virtual this year in order to comply with COVID restrictions.

This doesn't mean that our Bears will miss out on joy of shopping for gifts. It simply means they can now shop from the comfort of home anytime during Dec 6 - 10. With your help, your child will log into our school specific website, where they will view and be able to purchase a large variety of gifts in many different price ranges. Parents will have the opportunity to help their Bear shop or simply view the total amount spent before checking out.

Click "Holiday Shop" below or click here to be taken to our shop starting Dec 6th. All items will be delivered to school, where set pickup times will be advertised. All items will arrive prior to Christmas break.

Last chance to send our flock to someone before they fly south for the winter! Our Flock will be flying to warmer weather on Dec 23rd. Don't fret though! If you don't get send the flock before then, they will be returning in March.

Help support BGS while having a little pink flamingo fun! Make a $25 donation to send a flock of 20 pink flamingos to your friends', neighbors', or family members' front yards! The flock will fly in overnight and fly on to a new location after 2 days.

Send the flock to someone on their birthday, to celebrate a milestone, as a pick me up, or just for fun! You can send the flock to anyone who lives within the BGS attendance area. All flocking is anonymous! A $5 donation allows the recipient to find out who sent the flock their way.

Want to make sure you aren't flocked? No problem! For a $10 donation you can purchase Flocking Insurance. If someone tries to flock you at any point during the school year, the flamingos will go to them instead!

To sign up to send a flock, find out who flocked you, or purchase flocking insurance, just click here!

For any questions, please contact our flock wrangler Lindsay Rath at


We know you're all anxious to get your new spirit wear. Our Spirit Wear team delivered all orders to school last week. Your Bear should be bringing home their items via backpack. If you don't receive your order, please reach out to our spirit wear chairs: Jennifer Khoury ( or Christine Kedziora (

A limited number of BGS branded masks in both adult and kid sizes, as well as vintage spirt wear continue to be on sale in PtBoard.


The PTO is happy to bring back our popular Crafts with Frosty event this year. Due to the COVID restrictions, our event will be virtual this year.

The PTO will be sending home a free winter craft kit with each of our Bears in the coming week. Please do not open these kits as we will be hosting a virtual zoom event where our PTO Vice-President will guide our Bears through the craft on the morning of December 18th.

We are looking forward to having our BGS Bears participate in this festive event. Stay tuned for further details!
