This year BPAC has generously been given a beautiful handmade quilt to raffle off at the school. The quilt (4.5'x5.5') has a gorgeous night sky quilted with batik fabrics on the front and layered with warm flannel on the back. Tickets are 5 dollars each or 3 for 10 dollars. We are asking Bowcroft families to help us sell tickets and raise money for the school. If you are interested in selling or buying tickets please inquire at the office.

We had tremendous success with the Entertainment Book Fundraiser. We raised over $3100. One of our Kindergarten students, Kingslee C. was the top seller and won his class a Crave Cupcake Treat. The other top sellers were Adyson S., Colt M., Nova P. and Emily R.E. They all got a turn in the cash machine and won lots of fun prizes as well as cash!
The Scholastic Book Fair was another great success, netting us over $2,000 in books for the library.
We are currently in the midst of our Poinsettia Fundraiser. We’ve never done this fundraiser before, feedback is always welcome.
Last but not at all least, we are gearing up for our biggest fundraiser of the (every two) year, CASINO!
On to some serious news. This past month many of us received a letter from the CBE informing us of an enrolment issue within the German Program. It indicated that if we do not reach 20 registrations in Kindergarten for the 2016 - 2017 school year by March 31st 2016, the German Bilingual Program will begin the closure process. As you can imagine this has stoked the fire and BPAC is working diligently to maintain the program.
We would like to extend the invitation again to ALL parents to join us at our next BPAC meeting. One of our parents, Wayne Jackson, has taken the initiative to write up proposals and a plan to maximize our effectiveness on maintaining the program. He will be giving us a quick presentation and I encourage you all to come. We are making it a social event and want parents to take the time to talk in a casual setting, get to know each other better and perhaps even get to know the school and the challenges it / we face.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how this enrolment issue could affect the ENTIRE school. Please come and enjoy some snacks and chats; the meeting will be in the school library on Monday, December 7th @ 7pm. Hope to see you there.
