BGS PTO News & Happenings
Read-A-Thon Wrap Up
- Our students received a whopping $14,554.42* in pledges from their sponsors (more than double our original goal!)
For the next four weeks, we're in what we refer to as the "collection period". Students are no longer able to invite sponsors, but anyone they invited that hasn't sponsored them yet can still do so. After our "collection period" is over we will announce our top readers and fundraisers and the winners of our prize raffles for Amazon Kindle Fire Tablets.
If your child has "offline donations" (sponsors that committed to cash or check donations), please send those into school in an envelope marked "attn: readathon" ASAP.
*Please note: the PTO will not net this full amount as there are fees associated with the company that hosts our event.
Stuff A Bradley Bear Sale!
Kits can be ordered on PtBoard and will be delivered to classrooms in early May. See the flier below for details or reach out to our event chair, Jeanine, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get Moving at the Color Run!
After a 2 year hiatus due to COVID, our Color Run event is back by popular demand. Race around the fields of BGS while getting showered with color powder on Friday, May 6 from 7-8 PM.
Registration in PtBoard is required by April 20 to ensure we have enough packets for everyone.
Every registration includes a registration packet which includes sunglasses to protect your Bear's eyes from flying powder and a powder packet so they can spray their friends while running.
Two registration options are available:
$25 Registration includes a t-shirt, along with your registration packet
$15 Registration includes your registration packet ONLY (no t-shirt)
