A Thank You & BCD Family Harvest Dance

The Parents’ Association would like to thank everyone who volunteered and baked goodies for Grandparents’ Day.  It was a great team effort and a beautiful morning at BCD.

We hope that you all can make it to the BCD Family Harvest Dance next Friday, October 25 from 5:30-8 pm in the Fitzpatrick Gymnasium.  The evening will be a potluck event.  We ask that families with last names that begin with A-H bring a salad/appetizer to share.  Families with last names that begin with J-P bring a main dish to share.  Families R-W bring a dessert to share.  Each family can bring their own drinks.  Paper, cutlery, and napkins will be provided but it would also be wonderful for you to bring your own.

Thank you again for all that you do for the BCD community!

BCD Parents’ Association

All parents are members of the Parents’ Association. Active participation on the Association’s committees and their projects gives parents opportunities to become better acquainted with one another and with the life of the school. Though volunteering is not required, the expectation is that each parent will volunteer to work on two school functions. Volunteer activities contribute substantially to the well-being and overall healthy environment at BCD. Over the years, the School has been fortunate in having all parents give willingly of their time and talent to enrich BCD.
