Please contribute to the B.F. Day Direct Drive

2009/2010 Direct Drive: We know that B.F. Day is a special place but it’s no secret that the district can’t support all of the programs we’d like for our kids. The B.F. Day PTSA’s mission is to take that extra step, to fund enrichment programs that enhance our children’s time at school and foster their intellectual and personal growth. Just a few of the very important experiences the PTSA makes possible are:

  • A school-wide music program
  • A computer lab utilized by all grades
  • Special in-class and after-school enrichment programs like chess club, drama, yoga, hip-hop, double-dutch classes, and much more
  • Partnerships with renowned organizations like ArtsCorp and Writers in the Schools who create outstanding educational arts programming
  • Pacific Science Center visits and special environmental study units
  • An after-school tutoring program, as well as math and literacy support for accelerated students
  • Learning for Life, a program to help kids develop emotional and social maturity
  • Support for popular school events like Village Day, Field Day, and Family Nights

It takes a lot of hard work and a significant amount of funding to support programs like these. In 2008/2009, the PTSA spent over $65,000 on these programs. Traditionally, we raise the bulk of our funds through our annual gala auction. This year we are simply asking for your support directly. Our goal is to raise $50,000 this year. When you break it down, that’s just about $150 per B.F. Day child . . . but anything and everything helps. If you are able to contribute more, then you will be giving a wonderful gift to all the kids at B.F. Day (and don’t forget that all PTSA donations are tax deductible (Tax ID: 91-1348668) and eligible for matching funds if your employer supports these).
