Reminder – Backyard Bash – This Thursday 9/26 – 5:30-7:00 PM 📌

Wear your BAS shirts today! Pretzels will be sold after school at each pick up door and on the playground for $1 each. Children attending aftercare will be able to purchase pretzels before they get on the bus. Students in the AM kindergarten classes will receive a form to send in money prior and the children will get their pretzels at dismissal.

Trick or Trunk – Friday 10/25 – 6:00 PM 🎃🍬

Join us for our annual Trick or Trunk event! Come dressed in your costumes for a fun night of trick and treating and Halloween activities. This is a family event and siblings are welcome! Please see the attached flyer for additional details.

Candy for the event will be collected between Friday, October 11th through Thursday, October 24th. We kindly ask for one bag to be sent in to school with each child. The collected candy will be divided up and distributed to each family with a decorated car to hand out during the event.

Our Halloween Parade is always a favorite event! Details will be sent out separately from Mrs. Murphy.
