Hello Beverly Cleary families,

We wanted to report that we raised $800 from our recent Blind Onion restaurant fundraiser.  Wow!  Also, the Dear Francis coffee fundraiser is on until the end of April.  $4 from the sale of each bag of coffee beans will go to BCS!   These funds are reinvested in our community in the form of enrichment scholarships for students, grants for teachers, and community building programs like the upcoming art show!  So thanks again for supporting our PTA in this way.
