Have a Great Summer! – BCE President Emily Beach

Dear Friends,

With the school year behind us at last, we want to take a moment to thank our dedicated teachers, staff, and coaches who taught and nurtured our children throughout this year – many of whom are made possible by our collective BCE donations.

June 30th marks the end of BCE’s fiscal year. If you still intend to donate to our annual campaign or file your employer matching paperwork, please make it a priority today. Because every student benefits from our annual grant and every dollar counts, our goal is to achieve 100% donation participation from every BSD family by June 30th. 100% participation sends a clear message to future supporters, community donors, grant-givers, and new families. Your gift really matters.

“We are BCE” celebrates the powerful character and sense of pride at each of our six schools and also throughout our community. Flexible funds raised by BCE help our school district leaders do more for every school site by providing additional teachers, programs, and professional development that create a rich and inspiring education for our children. When our community joins together, anything is possible for all of our children – no limits, no ceiling!

For all who have contributed to our success this year by volunteering, donating, or participating in events like Spirit Run, Read-a-thon, BCE auctions, Dinner Dance, or Silicon Valley Gives Day – THANK YOU! During the sleepy month of July, our volunteers will tally the final results of our annual campaign and keep you posted on our collective success.

As we anticipate all the fun summer brings, please don’t forget to invest in your student’s 2015-16 academic year by making your tax-deductible donation to BCE before June 30th. Donations by check must be postmarked and donations by credit card must be processed by June 30th.

It is not just a slogan when we say, “We are BCE.” It simply couldn’t be done without you. Thank you.

Have a great summer!
