Congrats, Bonny Slope families!
Are you ready to have some fun, celebrating another great school year with games, inflatable slides, an obstacle course, food carts, a pie-eating contest, and so much more?! Bonny Slope 7th Annual Family Carnival is Friday, June 3 from 5:30 to 8pm.
To celebrate our students and their hard work, the 2016 BSCO Carnival is FREE! Plus no more paper tickets! Kids still need to be registered, so please register via this link or return the form coming home in this week's Friday folder to the office by MAY 27. Find the sunscreen, and prepare yourself for an exciting, fun-filled event to cap a fantastic year!
BSCO’s goal at the beginning of this school year was to fundraise just enough to cover our extensive list of programs and events. Historically, Carnival has been a revenue neutral event, spending and bringing in right around $5000. However, after analyzing our YTD numbers, as well as witnessing the awe-inspiring fundraising efforts of our community, your BSCO Board has made the decision to make Carnival complimentary and remove the ticket fee this year.
Long story short — our expenses are less and our income is greater than what was budgeted this year. Several completed events have come in significantly under their budgets this year, including OBOB, Artist in Residence, and Visiting Author. Concurrently, our recent Auction annihilated its goal, bringing in a solid $25,000 over its $50,000 goal. Which means this event can be offered free of charge — you’ve already paid for it!
The Carnival would not be possible without the assistance of our volunteers. Please sign up for a short, one-hour shift.
