Swing into Spring with the Bonny Slope Auction at Top Golf on April 14th!

With the excitement of the snow this week it’s easy to look towards warmer weather.  Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 14th as you are invited to join us at the Bonny Slope Spring Auction! Our auction and game play will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Top Golf in Hillsboro.  

Tickets on sale February 22nd!

This year we are very excited to host our annual auction on a new day and at a new location.  The primary focus of the auction is to raise funds to support our BSCO programs, our BSE classrooms and our students.  With that in mind we want to ensure that funds raised by YOU go towards the programs for YOUR students. As in the past, the evening will allow for the community to gather and to connect as we help to support our BSCO programs.  

So come and take a few swings in the golf bays, bid to win one of the many silent auction packages, and make some new friends over dinner and drinks.  It is sure to be an evening you won’t fore-get!

Things to know:

Q. Will the fundraiser still feature a silent auction?

A. Yes. We will have a prize-filled silent auction like in previous years. The live auction will not be included as all items will be featured in the silent auction. We’re also trying out new technology for easy bidding while you play your round of golf.  

Q. Is this still a community-building event?

A. Yes. The golf theme and backdrop is just the location for the auction.  We will have plenty of space to mingle and connect with other members of our wonderful BSE community. No golfing experience necessary for the TopGolf game play activities.

Q. Can I bring my kids?

A. No. While Top Golf is a fun family activity, the auction event is an adults-only night. Come check out the location and book a tee-time for another family outing.

Q. Is this a theme party?

A. Yes and No! We know our community loves a theme so if you feel like it fairway attire is encouraged. Of course dressing up is always optional.  The photo booth will have fun golf themed props for you no matter how you arrive.


Q. What if I can’t attend?

A. There are many ways for you to support BSCO programs outside of attending the auction. There will also be raffle tickets and teacher experiences available to purchase on the auction website in the coming weeks.  You can also offer your support by volunteering or donating items.


Q. Want to sponsor the event, donate items for the silent auction, or help with the event planning?

A. We need you!  Send an e-mail to auction@bonnyslopebsco.org

Pancake Breakfast Hits the Spot!

Bonny Slope Elementary’s fifth grade class hosted its annual Pancake Breakfast this past Saturday. Over 600 people ate pancakes, sausages, and oranges, and washed it all down with juice and coffee. The fifth grade raised more than $5,500 to help with this year’s science school, to be held February 28th and March 1st.

Our fifth graders, parent volunteers and Bonny Slope staff did a great job selling tickets, hosting, cooking, and serving. Thank you to everyone who helped!

A special thank you to Jenny Johnson, Walmart, Starbucks, Trader Joe’s, and Bale’s Thriftway, and Costco for all of their generous support!

Save the Date! Pancake Breakfast February 2nd

Mouth watering pancakes. Juicy sausages. Tangy oranges. And a cup ‘a juice or coffee to wash it down. Mmmm… good.

Not only is the food good, but it goes to a good cause: fifth grade activities! For those not there yet, fifth grade at Bonny Slope is a special time, a transition year as our little ones get ready to go to middle school. Pancake Breakfast helps pay for many of those activities, including a two-day science school field trip to study ecology and learn to build like the beavers do.

The best part of Pancake Breakfast is the kids do the work (with a little help from parents). They will sell the tickets, seat you, and serve the food.

Box Tops for Bonny Slope!

boxtops.png

Now that we’ve all settled ourselves into the back to school groove it’s time to start turning in those box tops.  Box Tops are located on certain product packaging and when turned in they are worth 10 cents each.  Go to www.boxtops4education.com to see which companies participate in Box Tops.  Our goal this year is to earn $1,500 for our school.  At ten cents each, that’s 15,000 box tops!  Can we do it?  I think so!

As a fun incentive, the top two classrooms to collect the most Box Tops by the end of the school year will earn an ice cream party!  To see who’s leading the pack, check the score board near the red Box Tops collection bin.

We receive checks twice per year and the first submission deadline is quickly approaching.  I will be sending in the Box Tops we’ve collected by October 31st.  Now is the time to check your cupboards and fridge and follow these tips:

  • Save your box tops in an envelope or plastic bag labeled with the name of your teacher or print out a collection sheet from the Box Tops website.  Don’t forget, teacher name = points earned toward an ice cream party.

  • Have your kiddo put your bags/envelopes in the red collection bin.  The red collection bin is located in the hallway close to the office. 

  • Please double check the expiration date on your Box Tops.  Expired Box Tops cannot be submitted.

  • All Box Tops must be fully intact.  If you accidentally tear or cut a portion off of the Box Top, please tape it back together.

Ask your neighbors, family, and co-workers to help clip those Box Tops.  Let’s fill up that collection bin!
