Dancing with the BV Stars!


School Dance to Benefit Camp Courage
This Friday, grades 3-5 are invited to a dance in the gym from 3:15-4:45 (be sure to complete the form that went home in last week's Tuesday Folder). Admission is $4 and Concessions are $1/each (these are suggested amounts and donations are encouraged to support Camp Courage). 

Student Council has partnered with the 4th grade Girl Scout Troop 1612 to raise money for Camp Courage. This is part of Troop 1612's take action project with Bi-Lo Charities Children’s Cancer Center. 100% of proceeds from admissions and concessions will go to sending children to Camp Courage. Founded in 1994, Camp Courage creates an unforgettable recreational experience for children and teens with cancer or blood disorders from the Upstate of South Carolina, western North Carolina, and Northeast Georgia. Click HERE to learn more.  Some of our own present and past Bobcats have enjoyed Camp Courage. 

Dancing with the BV Stars will be a fun-filled afternoon for our 3-5th graders and they will be supporting other children to have a fun-filled camp experience this summer! If you would like to provide any additional support for this project, we are looking for concessions and decoration donations.  Please sign up HERE if you are willing to contribute.
