    Dear 7th and 8th Grade Parents,

    Tuesday, June 7th is a big day for our 8th Graders...GRADUATION

    Please help us make this day special for them.  We ask everyone for their support in set-up/clean-up and donations.  And in the tradition of past BCS graduations, 7th Grade parent volunteers are required during this special occasion so that the 8th Grade parents can enjoy the event with their families.  After months of planning to make everything special, we will just need your help on graduation day and for the farewell breakfast (that 7th grade students attend as well) on June 10th.  

    Part of the evening festivities will include a gift card raffle at the dance.  Please consider donating cards or giving a monetary donation for our Dance Committee to purchase them. For monetary donations for gift cards, please click the link below and specify that your donation is for the 8th grade dance.
