BHMS Parent School Alliance Fundraiser!
Dear Black Hawk Middle School Parent(s) and Guardians,
The Black Hawk Parent School Alliance, a parent volunteer-run nonprofit organization, holds one big fundraiser for the year, which allows us to provide support back to the students of Black Hawk Middle School! Once again, the end of the fundraising period will culminate in a school-wide celebration – the Black Hawk BLAST – Friday, September 29, 2023 (rain date October 5).
Why do we need to fundraise?
It’s all for the kids! The Black Hawk Parent School Alliance helps BHMS raise money to cover costs that are not otherwise in the budget. Examples include:
- Special in-school events such as Battle of the Books, Maud Squad, field trips and year-end celebrations
- Recognition for student achievement and development (Panther Pride and 8th Grade Recognition Ceremony)
- WEB Program (Where Everybody Belongs)
- Field Trips
*Use of the funds will be determined and prioritized by the BHMS Parent School Alliance.
How will this year’s fundraiser work?
It will be easy! Students simply ask family and friends to make a tax-deductible donation to our school.
Donations may be made online between now and September 29, 2023. Donate today at https://bhmsparentschoolalliance.betterworld.org/campaigns/fundraiser2023
Donations may also be made by check. Checks should be made out to BHMS Parent School Alliance and recorded on a donation log. Checks/cash and donation logs must be turned in by September 27, 2023.
BHMS Parent School Alliance is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization so all donations are tax-deductible! Your cancelled check or online confirmation is your receipt of your donation. And don’t forget to check with your employer about a corporate matching gift program – many companies will match donations made to schools by their employees!
What about the fun in “fun-draiser”?
The student fundraiser will culminate during the Black Hawk BLAST and Panther Rally - a school-wide celebration at Black Hawk Middle School on September 29, 2023. The BLAST will be a fun filled day of collaborative games, activities, and school spirit! Our goal is $15,000. The Panther Time classes in each grade level that raise the most funds will receive funding for a celebration! (Celebration TBD by the winning PT class teacher. Funding limited to $100 per winning class, and may cover a pizza party, ice cream bar, or other items as decided on by the PT teacher and their students).
THANK YOU for your support of Black Hawk Middle School! Every donation, large or small, will make a difference to the BHMS students!!
