Birchview Bobcat Fun Run
The Birchview Bobcat Fun Run is a great way for our PTA to raise much needed money to fund field trips, assemblies, playground enhancements and more. During the school day on Friday, October 30th, students and teachers will walk, run, skip--whatever they like--around the Bobcat track for 30 minutes. This event is about Birchview spirit, health/wellness and raising money for our wonderful school. For more information, click here

Pumpkin Math - Volunteers Needed!
I'm looking for volunteers to help facilitate PUMPKIN MATH on Friday, October 30th in our classroom. During this fun activity, we improve our measuring and estimation skills by investigating 4 different properties of pumpkins. If you'd like to come into our class to volunteer, please save the date. Due to the Birchview Bobcat Fun Run that is scheduled the same day, we are not able to commit to an event time at this point. Right now, we are planning on Pumpkin Math in the morning from 9:20 - 10:20am but will let you know as soon as we know! :)
I am also hoping for 6 medium to large pumpkins to be donated to the class. They will be weighed, measured, scooped out, and seeds counted. If you wanted to, you could have it back for carving after we're done, although I don't think we should send them on the bus! :)
If you are able to help out or have a pumpkin to donate we would really appreciate it! Use this link to sign up to volunteer or bring in supplies: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080c48a9a62da02-pumpkin
Thank you to everyone willing to have fun and get a little messy with us!
