BLMS RELAY FOR LIFE 2017!
We are excited to announce the 5th annual Middle School Relay for Life this year will be held on Tuesday, May 23rd. This is a great opportunity for our students to help support a great cause and have fun all at the same time. To make the Relay a huge success, we are still in need of a few donations. We are looking for donations of the following items for the day of the Relay:
• Cases of water
• 12 oz (small) Bottled sports drinks
• Freeze pops
• Capri Sun/hugs (small drinks)
• prepackaged individual servings
• Candy Bars
• Hot dogs
Food donations can be turned in to the Middle School Office or to your student's homeroom teacher any time between now and Monday, May 22nd.
Your donations would be used to make our Relay for Life a huge success for our students and more importantly, for the Relay for Life organization. Donations would be used for prizes and rewards for games, concessions, and treats for students and helpers. If you are able to donate, please contact the middle school for more information.
Along with games and concessions, we hold a silent auction each year. If you'd like to donate something for the silent auction please label it "Silent Auction" before sending it to the MS office. In the past students have raved over Raider-wear and sports equipment! Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
We will be honoring cancer survivors and remembering those who have lost their lives to cancer by walking the track; our goal is $1000 per grade level. For all students donating a $100 or more will be put in a drawing for a pair of Beats Headphones and receive an ice cream treat as well. For students donating smaller amounts, other prizes will be drawn for as well. All pledged money needs to be turned in to homeroom teachers by Tuesday, May 23, 2017.
The best part of the entire day is the Relay for Life will be a Survivors Lap that concludes the day. We want to invite any one that is a cancer survivor to join us this year at 2 pm to celebrate life! If you are a cancer survivor and would like to take part in the Survivors Lap, please contact the middle school office for check-in times and locations of the lap.
Thanks so much for your support, without your donations this year’s relay wouldn't be possible. Last year, the HS and MS raised a combined total of $35,000!! We look forward to raising even more this year!
Congratulations to 6th grade student Liliana Rodriguez for her exceptional creativity in designing this years logo for the Summer Enrichment Academy t-shirt. Liliana will be awarded a $50 prize from the Summer Enrichment Academy and a t-shirt.
