Tricky Tray Ticket Order form

Night-of-Broadway-LogoFor those of you who don’t know, the Tricky Tray is one of our school’s largest fundraisers.  This year it is held on Friday, April 25th at 6:30.  It is a large raffle with prizes ranging from $25/$30 to $400+ and even priceless prizes like a parking spot in the school’s parking lot.  There are about 150-200 prizes.
Please complete the 2014 Tricky Tray Ticket Order Form and  return it as early as Tuesday morning.  If you want to reserve a whole table, you need 10 names at registration with a check for the total amount. Ticket sales are on a first come first served basis.
The evening is a lot of fun.  Tables usually coordinate who is bringing what food.  People bring complete dinners or just snacks… up to you. Because of insurance you cannot bring alcohol to the event, but there will be a cash bar.  In addition to the raffles, there will be a 50/50 and raffle to win a $1000 gift card to Apple.  There will also be a new game of chance – so you can try your luck at that!!
We are still accepting donations for the grade prize baskets.  Families are being so generous, but we still need more funds to reach our goals.
Please hand your ticket requests in soon as possible.  If you have any questions, please contact me at jhandsman@hotmail.com

Arrival Time Drop Off

With the warmer temperatures finally upon us, arrival time at BPS will now return to the pre-cold weather days where students will be enjoying the fresh air as they line up outside by their designated arrival doors waiting for the first bell to ring each morning. In an effort to keep the flow of traffic moving and multiple drop off points along the school side curbs of Spruce Street and Brookside Place free of any parked vehicles, parents/guardians wishing to park their vehicles and wait with or in the vicinity of their son/daughter’s line up location are encouraged to park along Beech Street and walk to BPS. Every attempt is being made at the school level to secure an outside supervisory presence at each arrival door (especially at the primary levels K-2) so that parents/guardians feel comfortable just dropping off and going on their way.

Taekwon-Do BPS Fund Raiser

taekwondoGirlMy name is Anna Schneider. I am the Program  Director of the Taekwon-Do Center here in town. I’m sure you’ve seen us in the demo’s we often do in town.  We’d like to offer you all a great fund raiser idea with 100% of the proceeds going to you.  A win win!!

We invite all your students to  attend classes here for 6 weeks beginning April , with a free beginner uniform for  only $69. The entire $69 will be sent to you. How does it work? Here is the offer Taekwon-Do Flyer. When a student arrives here with the offer, we will ask for a check made out to the PTA from their school. We will then bring/send the entire amount to you. Just think, if only 15 students take the opportunity to try Martial Arts you’d take in $1035!  Without doing a thing!!!!
Why are we doing this? First and foremost, it helps our community and gets students involved in something positive and active. We will  teach the ABC’s of success: : Attitude, behavior and character building skills, along with Martial Arts.

Arrival Time Drop Off

A sincere thank you is in order for everyone working together to help expedite the process of morning drop off. Especially now in the winter season, taking advantage of the wonderfully convenient and safe cutouts in the snow our BPS custodians have diligently worked to create has enabled this process to move along relatively smoothly. Several other factors have been major contributors in adding to this success of morning arrival time. The fact that the majority of parents/guardians turning onto Brookside from Spruce are making right hand turns has helped increase the flow of traffic tremendously. Additionally, keeping the curbside along Spruce and Brookside the school perimeter free of parked vehicles has enabled a steady flow of cars to pull over, drop off and be on their way. Finally, congestion in and around Brookside and Spruce has been severely lessened by those individuals making the choice to utilize Beech Street as a wonderful location to park and walk with their child (which may include other children in a car pool) by way of the crossing guard.
