5th GRADE CRAFT FAIR LAST CHANCE SALE
Thank you to all the BAM families who supported the 5th grade by shopping at the Holiday Craft Fair last week! We raised over $2,100 for the 5th Grade Outdoor Ed. Fund. Fundraising efforts like this help us to provide the opportunity for all 5th grade students to attend a weeklong field trip to Sempervirens Outdoor School in the Spring. 

Last Chance Sale: If you missed the craft fair, there are still a bunch of excellent handcrafted items that we will sell after school on the big yard (weather permitting) on Wednesday, December 18th from 2:30-3pm. We’ll have knitted items, holiday decorations, potted plants, jewelry, ornaments and many more unique and fun things left to buy!  Please stop by and support our 5th graders. Thank you.

—Mr. Weis, Ms. Caporal, and Mr. Stephens

HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE LAST CHANCE DONATIONS
Thank you all who donated to this year’s Thanksgiving food drive. Because of our BAM families and some community partners, we were able to provide bags overflowing with all the fixings for Thanksgiving! Special thank you to Ms Brenda, who came back to help and Ms. Angel for shopping for and hauling of many of the turkeys we gave away. Please feel free to bring in gift cards of any increment to help support our families over the winter break. Even $5 helps! You can leave them with Ms. Jones through Tuesday December 17th. Thank you for your generosity. Go Coyotes!

—Zoe Ellis, PTA African American Affairs
