A New School Year

A hearty welcome to all our new families, and welcome back to everyone returning for another great year at B.F. Day!


All-School Summer Picnic – August 14th

Happy Summer from the BF Day PTSA! We hope you all are enjoying your
summer break and are looking forward to an exciting new school year for your kids. We’d love to invite you to keep in touch, meet our new principal, welcome new families, and help prepare for the first day of school. See details below:

All-School Summer Picnic playarea3

Connect with old friends and make new ones at the summer picnic on Thursday, August 14th starting at 6:00pm at Wallingford Park.  Bring a picnic dinner for your family as well as any outdoor games you may enjoy.  Please stop by the table next to the play structure for name tags and an opportunity to meet incoming principal, Stan Jaskot.  Classroom assignments will also be available! 

Easy Everyday Fundraising
Who’s been collecting their Box Tops and Labels for Education in the little baggies we sent home at the end of the school year?! And are you remembering to toss those Ballard Market receipts in there too?! It’s never too late to start! In fact, there are tons of ways to raise money for BF Day while you’re doing your regular shopping, at no added expense to you. Check out our webpage for how shopping at Amazon, Bartell Drugs, PCC, Fred Meyer, and more can raise money for our school. It couldn’t get any easier!

Communication Note
The PTSA is always working to find the best ways to reach out to our families, so look for some changes in our outreach this coming school year. For this and the rest of our summer announcements and updates, we are using our 2013/14 email list. Please email directly to be added, removed or to add a different email address. Thanks for bearing with us as we transition into our new year.
