$1-2-3 Clothing & Bargain Bike Sale is Coming!

It's almost time for our Spring $1-2-3 Clothing & Bargain Bike Sale. This BGS tradition helps you clean your closets, helps our community with low-cost clothes & bikes, and helps our school by raising funds for activities like the Brain Show.

Here's how you can help:

Drop Off Your Gently Used Clothes & Bikes- pack up those clothes, shoes, coats, and costumes. Give us your outgrown bikes. Package donations in labelled bags or boxes by size and drop them off Thursday, Mar. 14 from 4-7 PM or Friday, Mar. 15 from 9 AM - 2 PM and 4 - 7 PM. Donation receipts are available.

Help Out - We have to sort all the donations and get them organized for sale on Friday, March 15. Stop by for an hour or join us for a part of the day. It's a great way to meet BGS families and give back to the school. We can also use some volunteers for the day of the sale. Sign up for a shift here: Can't help out but want to help us advertise? Print out the flyer below and post it around town in laundromats, bulletin boards, or anywhere you think might have an interest!

Shop for Deals - You never know what deals you may find during our sale on Sat., March 16 from 9 AM - 1 PM in the BGS Gym. Some clothes are even donated with the price tags still attached. Most clothes are $1, 2, or 3 and bikes are generally $10 and up. Cash, check & credit card will be accepted.

March PTO Meeting Cancelled

Due to a scheduling conflict with the 3rd & 4th grade Science Fair, we'll be cancelling our March PTO meeting. If you're attending the Science Fair, check out our PTO table for info on upcoming events. If you won't be there, we'll be sending home updates via your classroom parents. Stay tuned!

In Case You Missed It


Girl Scouts Troop 61213, made up of 13 Bradley Gardens School fourth graders, will be selling cookies through month of February, with delivery expected in March. A portion of the proceeds that the Juniors make from their sales go back to the school every year for flowers and materials to help beautify the building.

In its fifth year now, the troop has completed several local community service projects such giving cookie donations to veterans, creating care packages for active military members, collecting items for displaced children and teens, bringing holiday song books and singing with residents at an assisted living center, and shopping for a family in need for the holidays.
