WHAT'S NEW

ANNUAL GIVING KICKS OFF IN NOVEMBER

SchoolForce, your district's educational foundation, is more important than ever, providing BRSSD a supplemental fund to carry forward library staffing, music specialists, science specialists and reading specialists! On Tuesday November 14th, SchoolForce kicked off our annual giving campaign with some fun and silly mustaches for our teachers, staff and your children!
Here's what we "mustache" ("must ask you!") of you:
  • Make your annual donation of $1500 per student in November and be entered to win TWO FREE AUCTION TICKETS! (Annual donation includes all sources of giving, including corporate match, and may be spread across monthly payments.)
• Contact your SchoolForce school chairperson to get involved and volunteer!
• Remember SchoolForce on Giving Tuesday, November 28th.


SCHOOLFORCE CANDY BUY BACK

Thank you to all BRSSD families who donated to SchoolForce's Halloween Candy Buy Back this year! For each pound of candy donated, local dentists Drs. Urmi Amin and Nancy Kaher and local orthodontist Dr. Michael Chang will contribute one dollar to SchoolForce, and the candy will be sent to active U.S. troops.


SAVE THE MUSIC 2017

What a fantastic 15th Annual Save the Music Festival on Sunday October 1st! Wonderful Music, Food and Fun all around! Thank you to our terrific sponsors, musicians and to everyone who came out for Save the Music!
