Greetings SBPS Parents and Friends!

We have an important fundraising event coming up - our Annual Baby and Kids Green Garage Sale! Thanks to all our donors who "got green" by cleaning out the gently used items at home and brought them in to our great group of parent volunteers. Our volunteers and committee heads have been putting in long hours to make this event a success. However, the sale takes A LOT OF PEOPLE to make the event run smoothly. Please consider volunteering and joining these smiling faces who are sorting and preparing for the big day, Saturday, September 21, 2019. It’s a lot of fun, our shoppers are grateful and you can make a few friends of your own. Here is the sign up link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050f48adae29a4fd0-2019. If you have any questions please email SBPSgaragesale@gmail.com or jenpatras@hotmail.com. Thank you to the committee for making this event happen once again. It raises funds for teacher grants to purchase additional instructional materials for classrooms.

The 2019 Home and School Association FUN RUN is Thursday, September 26th! We are tying our running shoes and warming up for this very fun day which raises money for the HSA’s community building efforts, teacher Christmas Gifts and important school initiatives like the Global Learning Lab furnishings (So we can complete the lab and have it ready for use!), new lockers for the middle school students, and other school initiatives to help our teachers teach and our students learn. Our goal is $80,000 and we can do amazing things with these proceeds. Thank you already to all who have logged in and have made pledges. And yes, you heard correctly, if we get a pledge from each of the 50 states, Ms. Waldron, Ms. Deletioglu and I will spend a night in our own St. Ben’s Belltower and Livestream our experiences throughout the evening and morning. I’m sure that will be a FUN time! We also encourage parents to come and cheer our students on. Here are the Fun Run times so you can plan appropriately:
