Welcome Back to School!
Summer may not be over yet, but summer vacation is! Here at Boones Ferry Primary School, we are hitting the ground running...the Fun Run, our annual fundraiser, is just a few short weeks away! Read on to learn more about the Fun Run and other news and happenings in September!
Our 18th Annual Fun Run is September 28th
BFPS PSS is excitedly preparing for another epic Fun Run this year! Our annual fundraiser supports so many wonderful enrichment and extension opportunities for our students. The kick-off assembly on Sept. 7th catapults us into 3 weeks of fundraising that leads up to the exciting and electric Fun Run event on September 28th.
We are proudly using the online "Pledgestar" system to solicit flat rate donations to friends and family of our Boones Ferry community! It's such a fun and easy way to text, email or post on social media. We hope to have 100% participation this year and are confident our Dragonfly spirit will radiate through the community. Toe tokens will be sold on various dates/times for $5 each. Toe token money WILL count toward student totals. Our Prize Chart is cumulative this year and we can't wait to show it off at the assembly! Fun Run packets will be distributed Friday, September 7th. Any monetary donations must be returned by October 1st.
PSS Open Board Position
Due to a family move, we are in urgent need of a new PSS Secretary. The Secretary must be able to attend all PSS meetings to take minutes. This is a Board position and therefore has a vote on PSS bylaw and budget proposals. If you are interested, please contact PSS President Amy Cossio at email@example.com.
Spirit Wear Shop is OPEN Now
We all know how much kids grow over the summer...get your NEW BFPS Spirit Wear now! The shop is open until September 28th.
Mark Your Calendars...the Biennial Auction is Coming!
Mark your calendar for the night where our BFPS community unites and Makes Magic Happen! Our biennial Auction is February 2nd at 6:00pm. This year's goal is to raise $75,000 to purchase new Google Chromebook and iPads for our students at BFPS. Please join us for a lively auction, dinner, dancing and to witness firsthand how generous our community is! This year we will dance the night away to the band Hit Machine!

Playworks Comes to BFPS
Thanks to the generosity of our Boones Ferry families and at the request of BFPS staff, PSS was able to fund a new program at BFPS, coming to recess in October. Playworks is a recess program that helps kids to stay active and build valuable social and emotional skills through play. Learn more about Playworks here: https://www.playworks.org/.
Yearbook Cover Contest
Each year, PSS holds a yearbook cover contest where the winning artwork is placed on the yearbook cover. Any student in Boones Ferry Primary is eligible to submit an entry! Please be on the lookout for the flyer with complete instructions which will be going home October 1st. Entries are due October 22nd.
