bailey bear boogie fundraiser * october
Bailey Station Elementary PTA produces the Bailey Bear Boogie each year, raising more than $36,000 in 2017 to help support some amazing learning opportunities for our students. The BBB is a one-day walk/run-a-thon event with prizes based on pledges, school spirit and participation. The Boogie has become an annual event that encourages healthy living and active lifestyles while raising funds for our Parent Teacher Association. Those funds are then used to provide learning materials and instructional resources for teachers and students throughout the year. Parent volunteers and teachers work together to make the event both fun and safe. Principal Cindy Tesreau said, “The kids love this event and look forward to it every year."
