Bobcat Blast 2017

PLEDGE NOW!

Get Ready for the Bobcast Blast! Our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year! OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $55,000 this year! 

This money goes directly back into the school to pay for all PTO Programs, extra educational materials, curriculum enhancement supplies, IXL Math program, technology needs/upgrades as well as requested grade level supplies. We are especially excited to fund writing supplements including the WriteScore and Lucy Caulkins programs. We estimate that the cost to pay for everything that the PTO and Administration would like to purchase to give our kids the best year possible will be approximately $85,000.

These things are NOT funded by the county, so we need to provide funding on our own. Our goal is to raise $55,000 through the Bobcat Blast and the remainder through other fundraisers/events this Fall and Spring.

We are asking all Bobcat families to participate in this event that promises to be fun for the kids and worthwhile for the school experience of all our children. We don’t ask our children to go door to door selling things; instead, we raise funds through fun and community building events throughout the year. 100% of the profits stay right here at BFES!


If you enjoy the many programs provided to our children, including additional materials to enhance learning in our classrooms, anti-bullying education, character development, Science Discovery Zone, leveled book room, Write Score program, and Young Authors to name just a few, then we need your help with the Bobcat Blast. These programs are made possible through PTO volunteers but paid for through school fundraising events (again, not by county or state funding).

Donating to the Bobcat Fund through the Bobcat Blast allows families and businesses to make tax-deductible donations that remain IN our school. You can feel confident that your efforts to get family, friends and busi- ness partners to donate will be appreciated by the entire school.
