Black Hawk Blast
Help Us Raise $10,000!
Friday, October 4, 2019 (rain date Oct. 7, 2019)
The Black Hawk Blast is our school’s one big fundraiser for the year! We are continuing with our successful donation campaign. Once again, the end of the fundraising time will culminate in a schoolwide celebration – the Black Hawk BLAST!
How does the fundraiser work?
It's easy! Students simply ask family and friends to make a tax-deductible donation to our school. Donations may be made online between now and October 3. Donate today! We have partnered with PayPal to provide a secure site to donate using your credit or debit card. Please remember to add your student’s name and grade.
Donations may also be made by check. Checks should be made out to BHMS Booster Club and recorded on the attached donation log. Checks and donation logs may be turned in before school on Sept. 26 OR Oct. 1 and 3.
Why do we fundraise?
It is all for the kids! The Black Hawk Booster Club helps BHMS raise money to support student-centered activities and programs. Examples include:
Additional learning and enrichment opportunities, such as the three Exploratory Learning Sessions offered each year. As well as the Courage Retreat for seventh grade students and other educational field trips for all BHMS students.
Activity bus pilot program (if we make our goal of $10,000 we’d like to try sponsoring an activity bus Fall Trimester as a pilot program).
Recognition and celebration events for students(Panther Pride and Presidential Academic Award)
WEB Program (Where Everybody Belongs)
What about the “fun” in fundraiser?
The student fundraiser will culminate during the Black Hawk BLAST and Panther Rally — a schoolwide celebration at Black Hawk Middle School on Oct. 4. The BLAST will be a fun-filled day of collaborative games, activities and school spirit! Our goal is $10,000. The Panther Time classes in each grade level that raise the most funds will receive a pizza party!
If every family donates just $15 we’ll make our fundraising goal! If you donate $150, you could co-sponsor an activity bus for a week. All donations are tax deductible.
Thank you for your support of Black Hawk Middle School! Every donation, large or small, will make a difference to the BHMS students!! Black Hawk Booster Club is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization so all donations are tax deductible! Your canceled check/or PayPal receipt is your record 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!
