Bow Falcon Booster Club Fundraiser

As you may have heard, the Bow Falcon Booster Club is holding a fundraiser where the winning recipient will win $10,000 dollars.

You may be wondering why we are communicating a high school fundraiser with our middle school community but be assured this fundraiser while also giving you a great chance at an impressive prize will benefit our current Wildcats as they become Falcons! 

The monies being raised will help purchase "raised" bleachers at the Bow High School Premier Field, that is used by many different sports teams (including our BMS atheletes) but also by the fans of these events!   The seating has been discussed for years, and the Booster Club is now taking action to make it happen. 

Tickets are $100 dollars and only a max of 300 are being sold. Some people have opted to split the fee and hopefully the winnings so feel free to get creative when it comes to buying a ticket.

To purchase a ticket you can visit the Booster Club website and purchase your ticket on line.

A grand prize winner will be selected on December 14th at the High School basketball game. You do NOT need to be in attendance to win. Ten additional winners will also be selected and win a portable stadium seat!

Thank you in advance for supporting this great fundraiser and remember tickets are limited so do not wait to purchase yours today!

Fall is nearing and the Destination Imagination season is finally beginning! I am excited start another season with BMS and welcoming both prior participants and prospective members who like to solve problems, be creative, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

We will be hosting a DI Information night on Wednesday, October 3rd at BMS in Room#38 (Grade 6 Wing) where we will discuss what the DI program is, how to become involved, and we will have the opportunity to attempt a challenge similar to what teams would during a competition. Students in grades 5 - 8 and families interested in participation on a DI team are invited to attend.  More information about the DI program and registration forms will be available. Information about Destination Imagination can be found at: www.nh-di.org.
