Dear parents,

Below are a few important reminders and key dates as we approach the end of this school year and prepare for next year.  

Carpool
Please keep your carpool tags, as we will use them again next year. During registration, bring your tags with you for the new 2017-18 validation sticker.
 
Uniforms
The current uniform policy can always be found on our website under the 'Parents' tab. The last significant uniform policy changes were made this past February, and include a one school year phase-out of the blue and khaki jumper, the plaid belt, the oxford button down, and the quarter zip pullover. Those items will not be permissible under the Uniform Policy after the end of the 2017-18 school year.
 
Keep in mind that Educational Outfitters, our uniform vendor, is having a 20 percent off sale May 15 - 31, a 15 percent off sale June 1 - 15, and a 10 percent off sale June 16 - July 15. The used uniform sale is from 9 - 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, in the Middle School Commons.

CARPOOL REMINDERS - BACK TO BASICS
   
Following is a message from Burgandy Hodge, at-large director, BFA Board of Directors...
 
This is the time of the year when our Colorado weather can be unpredictable. As we have seen this week--if there is going to be a weather-related delay it tends to happen right in the middle of afternoon carpool. Please know that our staff and volunteers are working diligently to ensure that each student is dismissed as quickly and safely as possible.
 
We all play a crucial role in ensuring that our carpool process runs smoothly. Regardless if it's a sunny day or a stormy one, please cooperate with the staff and volunteers that are doing everything in their power to keep our students safe. Remember a few carpool basics:
 
  • To keep carpool moving, please be on site by 3:45 p.m. to pick up your student(s).
  • 'All call' will begin by 4 p.m. Please note, if it is a light carpool day, all call may start earlier.
  • Students not picked up at all call, will be sent to the BASE after school program and you will be charged accordingly. If your student is sent to BASE, you will need to park and come into the building to check them out.
  • If your student is in an after school activity such as sports, a club or choir, please be on site to pick them up by the time the activity is scheduled to end. Otherwise he/she will be sent to BASE and you will be charged accordingly.
  • Parents are asked NOT to use electronic devices of any kind while in carpool line.
  • Watch your speed whenever you are on BFA grounds.
  • Respect your fellow drivers.
Thank you for your continued support of BFA.  Let's finish the year out strong!
 
For your quick reference, here is a link to the severe weather carpool procedures.

IMPORTANT CORRECTION 
    
Educational Outfitters (EO), BFA's uniform vendor, distributed a flier the first week of May with information about upcoming sales, prices and styles. Unfortunately, some of the style codes listed on the flier no longer apply, as the Board revised the uniform policy in February of this year. Educational Outfitters has been made aware of the corrections, but we want to be sure you have accurate information when you shop for school uniforms.  
  • Pants and shorts can be purchased in any style as long as they are navy or khaki. 
  • Skirts and skorts can be purchased in almost any style as long as they are navy, khaki or our school plaid (#36). There is an exception; the girls skirt cannot be purchased in style 134 or ALE702, as that is an entirely different fabric which impacts the color of the garment. As always, EO can help you identify any exceptions to our list of approved choices.
  • Jumpers are for students in grades K-5, and can be purchased in any style as long as they are in our school plaid (#36).    
When you are purchasing uniforms, please keep in mind that there will be a one school year phase-out of the blue and khaki jumper, the plaid belt, the oxford button down, and the quarter zip pullover. Those items will not be permissible under the Uniform Policy after the end of the 2017-18 school year. 

For additional information about upcoming sales, EO's hours and location, please see this corrected flier.

A message from BFA's Student Council...
 
We sincerely appreciate your generosity to Make-A-Wish for Brayden! He is scheduled to enjoy time at a dude ranch in June.

Got a soccer game or other sports activity on Saturday morning? Thinking about taking Mom out for breakfast a day early? Want to receive a chance to win a FREE "Bolting" of your choice? Then, come fuel up/reenergize at Applebee's and help the BFA Believers get to DI Global Finals at the same time! You can assist them by purchasing tickets and attending Saturday's Flapjack Fundraiser at Applebee's:
 
  • Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day - especially for BFA's DI team! Enjoy a short stack for a tall cause and have ***BFA teachers*** Ms. Poleschook and Ms. Gibson, as well as the BFA Believers' DI team and parents, greet and serve you a pancake breakfast at Applebee's (corner of County Line and University). 
  • Arrive anytime between 7:30-9:30 a.m., Saturday, May 13, at Applebee's (8292 S. University Blvd., Centennial, 80122)
  • Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased on the  . PLUS, any tickets purchased BEFORE 11:59 p.m., TONIGHT, Thursday, May 11, will receive a chance to win a FREE BOLTING of your choice! We will notify the winning family on Friday morning.
  • If you purchase a ticket on the  , you must do so by 11:59 p.m., TONIGHT, Thursday, May 11, and your name will be listed at the door. Get your tickets today! Tickets also will be available at the door on Saturday.
 
The Ben Franklin Bolting Fundraiser is still bringing the lightning and the thunder to BFA lawns all over place! Don't get left out in the cold (and rain) - yo u can participate by "bolting" a fellow BFA family for a tax-deductible donation of $25 to the BFA PTO and cover the lawn of BFA families with a dozen (12) Ben Franklin Lightning Bolts! 
 
  • When you "bolt" another family, you contribute to BFA's Global Finals-bound DI team. Place an order on the BFA Store and enter the address of the family you want to bolt. When you enter the bolted family's address, you can choose to remain anonymous, or let 'em know who bolted them. All that's left for you to do is sit back and the DI team takes it from there. They head out and place the BFA "bolts" in the family's yard you paid for. You just have to wait for the family to find the bolts and share news of their 'bolting experience' with their BFA friends. Then, the family who is "bolted" can choose to have the "bolts" moved to another lawn for $25 by placing an order on the BFA Store. The "bolts" will be removed the following evening by the DI team regardless of giving a donation.
  • Don't delay! There is only one week left of "bolting" - all orders must be in no later than noon, Thursday, May 18, to participate in the final day of "bolting" on Friday, May 19! Helpful hint: Use the Directory On Tap app to look up an address to "bolt." Note: Bolting Bens can be delivered only to families currently attending BFA; they cannot be delivered to a public space, townhouse, condo or an apartment complex.

If you are interested in donating to DI directly to support the BFA team, you can make a donation to the BFA PTO via the BFA Store in increments  of $50 or $100. (You're also welcome to write a check to the BFA PTO - please put 'DI' in the memo section.) 
 
Any donation is greatly appreciated, as the cost of attending the competition is significant - nearly $10,000 per team.  Information also will be in Thursday folders, but if you have questions, please contact Missy Washeck at (720) 935-5791  or via email.
 
DI is a volunteer-led creative problem solving program/competition that integrates STEAM principles and teaches 21st century skills. 
 
Thank you for helping the BFA Believers get to Destination Imagination (DI) Global Finals!

Our mission is to create young adults with character like America's founding Renaissance man, Benjamin Franklin: well-read, scientifically curious, and civically engaged.
Our students will excel academically through a challenging, sequenced curriculum that emphasizes math, science, and literacy. We will be a data driven institution, focusing on individual students. Our students, teachers, parents, staff, and leaders will be held accountable for the success of our school. Finally, we recognize that an education is incomplete without fostering the arts, sports, nature, and character.
