BC Cheer Fan/Picture Buttons HAPPY FALL ATHLETIC SEASON TO PARENTS/COMPETITORS: The BC Cheer squad wishes the best to all coaches, competitors, and parents as we begin the fall competition season. The girls have been working hard all summer and now these first few weeks of school in order to be ready to cheer on the Braves and Bravettes. Each season the girls offer competitors/parents an option to purchase sport buttons for $3.00/each. We truly appreciate so many of you supporting your teams as well as supporting the girls with this fundraiser! Right now, we are in the midst/chaos of making all of the buttons for all fall sports. We have approximately 600 button orders...so, with the time needed for adjusting, adding text, uploading, ordering, printing, making, and organizing...we are trying diligently to get them done in a timely manner. Our hope is to have as many football buttons done as possible before tonight's game. We will do our best. The ones we get done and are already paid for will be handed out at tonight's game. Volleyball and Cross Country button pictures are started and ones that are paid for will be handed out to those respective students today and/or early next week. Like every year, please, please do not hesitate to contact LeAnn Frauendorfer via text 4029920683 or email email@example.com if you have any questions, concerns, payments, and requests to order/fix/replace any buttons. We want to make this whole experience to be the best for everyone! :) Thank you again! LeAnn Frauendorfer and Janet Miller BC Cheer Sponsors

Dear Parents, Students and Staff, Thank you for your continued support of the annual book fair at Battle Creek Public Schools. We sold $4627.38 worth of books this year. We went $1100.00 over our goal. This means that we put approximately 588 books in the hands of students. In the elementary building we were able to purchase 308 additional books with our profit. That is approximately 900 books for children to enjoy and use to grow their imagination and knowledge. Thank you for making a commitment to your children/students and for nurturing the love of reading. Sincerely, Mrs. Becker Title I/Reading Recovery
