Dear BAM Community,
After multiple faxes, phone calls, trips, and unbelievably frightening amounts
of paperwork, I submitted the final papers to the district today for the Marin
Headlands trip! I wanted to send out an enormous thank you to all the parents
and students who did so much to make this trip a reality. Thank you for
donating items to the bake sales, making signs for the bake sales, working the
bake sales, coming to meetings, organizing the BAM Cafe, contributing food to
the BAM Cafe, decorating and working the BAM Cafe, writing recipes with your
children, putting together a cookbook, soliciting items for the raffle, printing
raffle tickets, selling raffle tickets, writing poetry to read at Books Inc,
bringing your kids and shopping at Books Inc on our fund raiser night, seeking
out grants, helping with grants, getting family members, neighbors, and others
to help support and for anything else I am forgetting to mention.
All together at this point, we have raised $13,666.72!!!
You heard that right.
Since our first meeting less than 3 months ago, we raised over thirteen thousand dollars!
We really came together, and in just a couple months we
were able to raise enough money to completely pay back the PTA, fund the entire
trip, and then some! Everyone deserves a big pat on the back for their hard
work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Tomorrow, we will have a celebration with all the 5th Grade students together.
I got some fine bubbly (cider), and we will toast each other, our families, and
the community for coming together for a great cause. We will work on some thank
you cards and celebrate an incredible achievement that reminds us all just what
an amazing place BAM is!
Again, I’d like to say thank you so much to each parent for your dedication to
not only your own child’s education, but to the greater educational community of
all of the 5th Grade students! Bravo!
