Volunteer Efforts

In addition to fundraising, we’re always looking for ways to give back to the teachers and staff. They work so hard for our kids, so any time we can provide them with a meal or assist them in volunteer events, we’re always there. Here are volunteer efforts we’ve supported this year:

  • Provided support for the Student Health Screening Day
  • Provided support for the BMS Flu Clinic day
  • Staff luncheon provided during parent/ teacher conference week by parents bringing in food
  • Provided support for a successful book fair
  • Provided a Taco Bar Luncheon for staff (thank you parent volunteers)
  • Provided breakfast for Guidance Dept during Counselor appreciation week
  • Facilitated purchase of Bruin shirts.
  • And many ongoing volunteer hours in the library, the copy shop and resources area that help make each day run smoothly at BMS
