The PTO would love your help raising money for the school! Specifically, we’re raising money for new Core Knowledge science curriculum, improving the sound systems throughout the building (which also enhances safety), an addition to the rock wall, and general improvements around the school. The PTO is hoping to raise $50,000, so we’re asking each student to set a goal of raising $75.

The Fun Run is this Thursday, April 25! In an effort to try and make things easier for parents, the PTO created an online waiver, but have since received notice from Run4Funds that a different waiver must be completed instead. We are very sorry for any inconvenience, but we’d like everyone to complete the NEW WAIVER.

What You Can Do to Help Now:

  1. Use the pre-filled email template on the fundraising website  and help your student(s) send informational emails requesting fundraising support to your contacts. 
    1. We suggest you send at least 10 emails per student!
    2. Ask friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. to support your student(s). 
    3. Donations to our school are eligible for most employee company matching programs. Easily double your donation by asking your employer to match! 
  2. Share information about our fundraiser and a link to donate on your social media pages, and ask your friends on social for their support! 
  3. Track your student(s) donations on our fundraising website and remind/ask your contacts for their support. 
    1. All donations are due Thursday, May 2.
    2. If a donor sends cash or check, please put it in an envelope clearly marked with your student’s name and teacher name, and turn it into the front office. Checks should be made out to BFA PTO. Note: if you have donations that are not showing up online, it is most likely due to a misspelled name or nickname. Please be assured that we will match all donations prior to prizing, no donations will be missed!
