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.

  1. Students may only apply for 2 enrichment opportunities per student at this time. We will open applications back up after Tuesday, January 29 for any enrichment programs that still have openings if your student wants to participate in more than 2 enrichments. We will update the Enrichment site as courses fill.

Holiday Care Package for the Troops

Two of our very own BV students have a father who is stationed overseas. 

Mrs. Long’s 3rd Grade class would like to send his troop a care package to enjoy while overseas. Here are some items that are needed for Sgt. Davis and his friends. Anything non-perishable, candies, popcorn, jerky, seeds, cakes, cheese crackers, peanuts, etc. They also need chapstick, hand sanitizer, little lotions, toothbrushes, floss, toiletries, and wipes. Please send in any items to Mrs. Long by Friday, November 30th.

Bobcat Bash is STILL ON for Friday, November 9!

We’re not letting the threat of bad weather dampen our school spirit again! The Bobcat Bash is on tomorrow…rain or shine!

 Carnival is a Buena Vista family favorite, and it’s also one of the biggest fundraisers for the PTA. Many of the cool things we do for the school every year are possible because people like you support the Bobcat Bash.

 Organizers and the administration have put their heads together, and if the rain comes, there’s a backup plan. And a backup plan to the backup plan!

 No matter what…there will be rides! There will be games! There will be 200 cartons of confetti eggs and 500 cans of silly string! We will set up bounce houses in the gym, concessions and the silent auction in the cafeteria, and unless there is lightning, ZoomBall will still be outside under an inflatable tent.

 The bottom line is the kids will not be disappointed and neither will you. We might have to pull together to make some last-minute adjustments, but we know with our school family, anything is possible.

 We hope to see you tomorrow from 3:30 to 7:30 for the Bobcat Bash!
