Thank you to all those who have purchased Foodland Plus Cards which are available in $25, $50, and $100 amounts. Please stop by the office to purchase these cards and Foodland will donate 10% of sales to BCS. We also have a new supply of Kroger cards which offer 4%.
In order to prepare for Applefest on October 8, the school will be conducting a Scavenger Hunt that is based on a point system. Soup labels, aluminum cans, soft drinks, cleaning supplies, yearbook ads, and new ink cartridges are only a few of the items on the list. Points range from 10 to 50,000 based on value of points! The collection dates are Monday, Oct. 5 and Thursday, Oct. 7. For more information, please see Mrs. Sonia Vandagriff, coordinator of this event.
On October 15, our local Junior Auxiliary of McMinnville will be hosting their annual “Coats for the Community”. These new or gently used coats provide cold weather wear and accessories to community members in need. Items needed are: coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, hats, scarves, and gloves from newborn to adults. Last year, there was a shortage of infant and child girl coats, so please remember this group too. Used items will need to be washed beforehand which allows the Junior Auxiliary more time to collect items.
To make this program successful, BCS Interact students have volunteered to collect the donated items from the classrooms. On Friday, September 30, please bring your items to your first period class and Interact members will do the rest. Every coat will be appreciated and placed in the hands of someone in need.
Response to the mum sale has been overwhelming! Thank you to Holly Hillis for spearheading this event and to Wade Whitmore and his parents for providing these beautiful mums! Sept. 30 will be the last turn in date if you want to pick up your mums at Applefest.
