GRATITUDE FOR #GIVINGTUESDAY!
Last Chance to Donate to BAM’S Fall Fundraiser

Thanks to the amazing BAM-ilies who donated to benefit our kids this fall and on #GivingTuesday—we’ve updated the fundraising thermometer on our website and outside the school entrance to reflect our great progress! However, we have not quite reached our fall/winter 2019 goal yet. And there’s still time to give before the end of December. If you haven’t yet, please drop a check made out to Berkeley Arts Magnet PTA in the office box or visit our website at  www.bamgivingcampaign.org. Thank you!

5th GRADE CRAFT FAIR 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 Friday, December 13th from 3pm-4pm and 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.

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

HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE SUCCESS
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
