BAM Cafe Was a Huge Success! 
Thank you to the BAM community for an amazing showing of support! It was a fabulous event and 5th graders and their families really came through with delicious recipes for all those in attendance to sample. Our grand total for the event was over $2,650! This brings us closer towards our fundraising goal to ensure that all 5th grade students have the opportunity to attend our 5 day and 4 night outdoor education trip to Sempervirens Outdoor School in April.  If you missed the event, but would like to pick up a copy of the 5th grade cookbook, stop by room B6. We have extras available for a suggested donation of $5-$10. Gooooo Coyotes!

BAM College and Career Day, Friday March 13,
Volunteer Presenters Needed
On Friday, March 13th, BAM is organizing a College and Career Fair for all students to attend. We need your help to put on an inspiring community event! Do you or a family friend have a career you would like to share or do you work at or attend a college or technical school? If so, please consider volunteering to be a part of the BAM Career and College Fair.

Volunteers will set up simple displays in the auditorium from 11:30am until 1:30pm. This might include a display board, pictures, videos, and/or real objects related to the work they do. We can help with planning and supplies. Students will cycle through the room in their grade level groups.

If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the Google Form at or fill out and return the paper form sent home in Thursday folders.   If you have questions, please email Mr. Weis at

Calling All Party Hosts !
The Starry Night Auction (Saturday, March 21) is a huge fundraiser for BAM and we get lots of donations from businesses but some of our most popular auction items come from YOU, the BAM Community!

We especially need more hosted party donations -- dinner parties, game nights, wine tastings, cooking parties, kid's activity parties, and more. You pick the party theme, date, time, number of guests, and other details and we sell slots for these parties at Starry Night during our silent auction. You can even team with other BAM families and co-host a party. The options are endless so please contact us if you want to brainstorm ideas.

You can fill out the donation form online using the link found at (click on Events tab) or contact Abbe and Rita at

Keep saving the date of Saturday, March 21st because we are planning a super fun evening for our community!

Many volunteers are needed to successfully implement BAM's morning Rolling Drop Off on the Lincoln Street side of the school. 

Each week, a different class will be responsible for helping with the Rolling Drop Off. This week (Feb 10-13) is brought to you by the families in Ms. Khare's Fourth grade class. Next week (FEB 18-21) is brought to you by families in Mrs. Williams' 4th grade class.
