The September 2018 Baby & Kids Garage Sale Purchases a Lot of Great Things for SBPS!

The September 2018 Baby & Kids Garage Sale had a record breaking year, raising over $32,000!   The sale's proceeds go to the teacher grant program.  We are excited to share what has been purchased with the funds so far!  All grades (PK - 8) and each STEAM department benefited from the sale.  Please find some highlights and pictures below!

Highlights (so far!):

Approximately $4,000 of new novels for the school and classroom libraries.

Approximately $4,500 of new flexible learning furniture for the elementary school.

Approximately $4,500 for new technology. 

Approximately $1,300 for the music departments.

In addition, we purchased new science materials, many new and exciting learning tools for kindergarten and preschool, and new gym equipment.  We also funded an 8th grade off campus learning event, a Get Ready for Middle School 5th grade event, and other in classroom learning activities.

None of this would have been possible without your donations nor without our amazing volunteers.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank YOU for making all of this possible! I've also attached two thank you notes we received from some of our kindergartners. The kids are very grateful as they enjoy the new materials.

The 2019 sale is scheduled for September 21st, and preparations are already underway!  Drop offs will begin in early June.  If you are interested in joining our team, please reach out to any of the committee members. We look forward to seeing you in June!
