BCD Holiday Gift Drive
The BCD community will once again be collecting holiday gifts for The Elizabeth Freeman Center, The Department of Children and Family Services and Town of Lee Head Start Program. These organizations will provide us with families for whom BCD families will purchase gifts. On Wednesday, November 20, there will be a bulletin board decorated by BCD’s Student Council in the foyer of Albright that students will visit with their homeroom teachers. They will choose a star indicating either the gender and age of a child or a specific gift request. You and your child will then purchase a gift for that person, wrap it, and return it the week of December 2. If you choose not to participate, please let your children’s homeroom teachers know, so we can assure that all families are provided for. The Elizabeth Freeman Center and The Department of Children and Family Services are grateful for our partnership. Thank you for your contributions!
BCD Holiday Book Fair:
BCD will once again team up with The Bookloft for our annual Holiday Book Fair to be held in the BCD library from Monday, December 9 through Thursday, December 12, 2013
This annual Holiday Book Fair raises money for our wonderful BCD library. It is a great opportunity for students and their families to support the BCD Library and get in a little holiday shopping as well. You can also honor a teacher, student or loved one by purchasing a book to donate to the Library in their name or you can donate a book to your child’s classroom. More information regarding the book sale and student buying/order permission forms will be coming soon.
However in order for the event to be a success we need the help of parent volunteers. Please click the volunteer here (https://docs NULL.google NULL.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AnuQpTGaq7XodDlDN0dRZ2M5TXRHTU81ZWRheldLN3c&usp=sharing#gid=1) to sign up for a day and time slot.
