I hope everybody’s first week of school went well and that you and your family are slowly easing back into the swing of things. Your PTA board has been working especially hard these past few weeks in order to bring you a fantastic array of events and programs over the next few months.

First though, I’d like to say a quick ‘thank you’ to all those families that joined us last Monday for our annual Boo-Hoo breakfast. It was absolutely wonderful meeting so many of our newest BPE families and surprisingly….not a single tear was shed as they parted ways with their precious little kindergarteners! PTA welcomes all our new families with open arms and we hope you will enjoy BPE as much as we do.

So mark your calendars because September is going to be a busy month. We have:

  •  T-shirts available for purchase on Friday, Sept. 4th 8:05-8:35am at the main car line gate
  •  PTA Board Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 8th 6:00-7:00pm in the media center
  •  Ice Cream Social/PTA General Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 15th 6:00-7:30pm in the cafeteria

Now, I know that summer is still going strong (seriously, can it get any hotter? and wetter?), but our Fall Fundraiser is set to begin this Thursday, September 3rd. Once again, we’ll be offering the Glacier “Sweet Temptations” brochure featuring a delicious array of the best-tasting cookie dough, as well as cheesecakes, pizzas, soups, Auntie Anne’s pretzel products and more. We’ll also be offering a second brochure with stylish and eco-friendly Love Bags (www.lovebags.com) as well. Be sure to stop by the front office before the sale ends on September 17th, if you would like to see some samples.

Did you know that over the past two years, the cookie dough fundraiser has raised more than $22,000 for our school?!? Give yourselves a pat on the back, because without your support this could not have happened. The money raised helps support many of the PTA events, activities, and programs that your child participates in every year. Also, a large chunk of funds we raise goes towards providing educational support to our teachers and enhancing technology resources (e.g. iPads, laptop computers, Kindles, etc.). Please support this fundraiser and help us reach our goal this year of $12,000.

Stay tuned for more exciting news from BPE-PTA coming to your Inbox soon!
