CEC Veterans Day Celebrations
Thank you to the CEC and all their volunteers who helped make our annual Veterans Day Celebration a huge success! Please see the latest Principal Newsletter emailed to you this Thursday, Nov. 18, for the links to watch the celebration videos. There were many people involved in making these events successful, including:
  • The CEC’s speakers, David Ivey and Craig Morrison
  • The director of the Color Guard, Tony Nickerson, and his volunteers
  • Bagpipe players, Jim and Kelly Fitzrandolph
  • The trumpeter, Mark Stallins
  • Deputy Travis Kyle and his K9 dog, Sig
  • Our veterans day video co-creators, Julie Roper and Alyssa Gale Freund
  • The leader guiding the Kindergarteners in song, Mason Macdonald
  • Ben’s Brigade for keeping everyone safe in carpool
  • Jaime Johnson for assisting with technology behind the scenes and coordinating the fourth grade performance
  • NJHS and Student Council for hosting our veterans and making them feel special
  • Corey Tuttle and Kelly Enders, managers from two of our local Starbucks, for donating coffee for our veterans day breakfast
  • Nikki Busto and Amy Marks for co-chairing the committee
  • And the many, many volunteers who decorated the school inside and out, as well as those who helped the day of the event and ensured the school was cleaned up afterwards. 
Without your support this event would not be the success it is each year!
Thank You Blood Donors!
The CEC would like to thank Amy Marks for coordinating our first ever blood drive. To say the BFA community came through in a BIG way for our local community would be an understatement! We had more than 45 individuals participate in the drive and we surpassed our goal of 32 units by collecting 46 total units (and 18 were first time donors). The units donated will be used in the local community to enhance and/or save the lives of 138 individuals. Thank you to all that donated, encouraged others to donate, and got the word out about our drive! We appreciate all your support for this amazing cause.
VA Hospital Donation Drive Wrap Up
Thank you to all the families who participated in donating items to the VA Hospital for Veterans Day. Your donations will help those less fortunate in our community to stay warm during the winter season.
