BFA HAPPENINGS

Good Afternoon-

Wow, it’s December already! How did that happen? 

Our fall book fair with Scholastic was a great success, we were in the top 10% of earners! 

All Head Room Parent notifications have been sent out. Parents that signed up to be room volunteers will be notified by the Head Room Parent. 

This month we had a Dine & Share with a Chicagoland favorite Lou Malnati’s! I hope everyone was able to Raise a Slice for a Good Cause with my family’s favorite pizza Lou Malnati’s!

If there are any ideas for socially distanced events or fun that we can host or share for our awesome Butterfield Bulldogs, please feel free to reach out to me or any BFA Board Member we love to hear new ideas!

During this Holiday season we must take individual and collective responsibility in practicing the 3Ws (watching distance, wearing a mask, and washing hands), as well as staying home when we are not well. 

Have a warm, safe and festive holiday season and I look forward to seeing you in 2021!
