OBOB Volunteers Needed

The Oregon Battle of the Books school tournament will take place at BCS on Saturday, February 11th.  Can you help?  Sign up here!  It's a great way for curious parents of younger students to get a taste of this fun reading competition.  For more information about OBOB, please visit our OBOB page. 

Lunch Duty Volunteer Opportunities

Can you help support our staff at lunch duty?  As a K-8, BCS has an extended lunch period, lots of students, and a rather large recess area to monitor.  If you find free time around mid-day, please consider helping at lunch duty/recess.  There will be staff there to support you.  Sign up here.  

Join the 2023 Spookarama Team

While Halloween is probably the last thing on your mind, we want our 2023 event to be spooky - not our project timeline! If you'd like to be involved in planning and leading a portion of the event, you're welcome to join the returning leads from 2022 in a casual meeting on Thursday, February 9 to discuss the 2022 event survey results and begin some early planning for 2023.  Contact Kelsi Roberts, if you're interested in joining the team - even if you can't make this meeting!

BCS Parents of Children with Dyslexia:

Do you have a child with dyslexia currently in BCS and are interested in meeting parents in a similar situation? Parents have expressed interest in creating a support and sharing group to connect on learnings, challenges and successes. The goal is to build a community where parents and kids do not feel alone in this journey. Please email if you’re interested in learning more.
