Thanks to all the families who have contributed to our fall fundraising, we have already raised $80,085 which is 53% of our fundraising goal $150,000 as of today. If you have not donated yet, please Donate now. All the money raised by PTSA goes straight back to EVERY student.

Sidewalk Chalk and Volleyball Donation

Our school is in great need of sidewalk chalk and volleyballs and would appreciate if parents can help out. The donated sidewalk chalk and volleyballs will be used by students at recess. For each class, a soft volleyball and a few boxes of sidewalk chalk are needed. The description about the soft volleyball can be found Here. YANYODO Official Size 5 Volleyballs or similar ones are perfect. For convenience, we have created a sign-up sheet for the donation items for each class. Here is the link to the sign-up sheet for the donation, Volleyball and Chalk Donations. If you can help, please bring or have students bring the chalk or the volleyball to the Somerset office. Please label the class on the donated items.

Feel free to contact Shannon at gregorys@bsd405.org if you have any questions. Thank you for your generous donation in advance.
