Annual Kids Only Shopping Extravaganza! RETURNS

We are currently gathering items for our Annual Kids Only Shopping Extravaganza!

For those of you that are new to BPMS, this event is a fundraiser for PIE and a favorite for students! We set up one of our spaces like a store and children come and buy items for family members for 25 cents, 50 cents or $1. Then we wrap the items and send them home in a bag with your child for future gift giving.

Please bring gently used items that can be regifted to the school by Friday, December 10th!

A box is set up in the Library Barn outside the school for parents to drop items off, or, if you send items in with a student, there will also be a box outside the office.

We appreciate your support in donating items such as: candles, jewelry, picture frames, small home decor, small toys or games (no stuffies, please) for this annual favorite for students and staff alike! Look through your unused items to see if you have things to donate.

As always, thanks for all the support you give to the BPMS PIE!
