Our Third Annual
BZ Day of Giving is Thursday, December 1, 2022

On that day we aim to raise $500K towards the AC and add to the growing list of donors, on our way to our goal of 100% parent participation

 All donors who have already made a gift to the 2022-23 Annual Campaign through the Day of Giving will be entered into raffles to win cool prizes for you, your children and grandchildren, their teachers and more. Stay tuned for more information about this exciting day for our school.
