2019-2020 DIRECT DONATION CAMPAIGN
Welcome to our new families and welcome back to our returning families.
We are asking that each family support BCS with a financial contribution to the BCS PTA 2019-2020 Direct Donation Campaign.
BCS only has two major fundraisers each year -- the Direct Donation Campaign and the BCS Blast - held each March.
You can contribute to the Direct Donation Campaign online by clicking here: https://www.myschoolanywhere.com/cart-new.a5w?cart=BirminghamCovingtonSchool1326
You can also make your donation by check. Just print off and fill out the Back to School Receipt: https://www.birmingham.k12.mi.
us/cms/lib/MI01908619/ Centricity/Domain/1823/6_PTA_ Back_to_School_Receipt.pdf
Without financial donations, BCS would not be able to provide the incredible educational programs and hands-on learning that sets BCS apart from other schools in this district. Since the BCS PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your donation to this campaign is completely tax deductible. And you may want to find out if your employer offers a matching program. We are happy to fill out any paperwork that your employer requires to facilitate the transaction.
We want everyone to truly understand the awesome things that PTA funds! Here are some examples of your direct donation dollars at work:
- Tower Gardens for 3/4 classrooms
- Science Olympiad and Robotics
- Schoolwide Directories (online and paper)
- LAUNCH Project Supplies
- LEGO Mindstorms EV3s
- Technology such as classroom iPads and Chromebooks
- Furniture for the Media Center and collaborative spaces in our hallways
- BCS Research & Design Lab (the PTA helped start the BCS Makerspace)
- STEM/STEAM supplies
- Birbery & Battle of the Books Reading Programs
- 8th Grade Challenge Day
- Engage and Thinkering Studio programs
- NoRedInk Writing Program
Looking for more information? Check out this Google Doc for updates!
Please ask your children, or your friend’s children, just how meaningful these programs have been to them.
If you want more information about how direct donation dollars are spent, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
