  • On Wednesday, January 23, some of our 4th grade students will be selling warm Krispy Kreme donuts for $1.00 each.  This project was developed by some of our 4th grade students who want to help a BBS family with out of town expenses during an extended hospital stay at St. Jude.  Donuts will be sold where Chick-fil-A biscuits are passed out on the Kindergarten hall.  Contact Dr. Corcoran if you would like to pre-order a dozen so that he can plan accordingly.

The top three finishers of the school bee will participate in the zone spelling bee on Thursday, February 7, at St. Nicholas School.

Each child who turns in $250.00 or more will have a civilian week, get a free t-shirt and will participate in a luau breakfast with Hawaiian ice and donuts. The top seller will receive $100 cash.
