The Spring Auction Opens for Bidding Today!
The auction site is live! Sign up now so you'll be ready to bid the moment the (virtual) doors open at noon!

Registration is 100% free and every person who signs up will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Mercurys Coffee gift card. Every day from today through auction closing time at 10pm this Saturday, we'll send an email to highlight a specific category of item up for auction, featuring videos of our charismatic auctioneer Matt Lorch and starring turns by some beloved faces from across our community. If you did not receive our first auction-specific newsletter last Thursday, you can subscribe to the newsletter to see each day's highlights.

Thanks so much for supporting this annual tradition in its brand new online format!

Seeking Your Input: Survey on PTSA 2020-21 Spending Priorities
We need your help to plan our fundraising goals and decide how best to allocate PTSA funds in the coming, very different, 2020-21 school year.

Please answer the survey questions with two specific scenarios in mind:

  • Our PTSA will likely raise less money next school year than in the past
  • We may be unable to have activities (fundraising and other events) where large groups of people gather.

Thank you very much for your participation in building our comm(UNITY).

Charger Weekly Challenge: Get Creative with Food
We miss each of our students! We'd love to see your faces smiling and having fun in this non-academic challenge. Consider:

• Preparing a snack for the family
• Helping with meals
• Using a new food item you’ve never eaten before
• Baking a cake or treat
• Creating “food art”. What animal can you make using bread, fruit, and a spread?

Participate in any way you see fit! Weekly themes are intended to inspire fun activities you can do on your own, with a family member, or virtually with peers. To show us how you participate each week, feel free to submit a photo or short video (under 30 seconds) from your BSD account to showcase what you’ve done.
