Join the Global Giving Movement and Donate to BVMS #GivingTuesday on Dec. 3

Help others through the gift of your time, donations, goods or your voice. Your decision to take action demonstrates that BVMS families and students give back. Students will advocate for a specific cause & volunteer in our community. Parents can support our new middle school programs by making a tax-deductible donation to the BV Annual Fund and sign up to volunteer for winter & spring!
We still need to raise an additional $40,000 to reach our Annual Fund goal for 2019-20. Your donation will support the Arts, Clubs, Athletics, Academics, Parent Education, and School Beautification.

IT STARTS WITH US ON #GIVINGTUESDAY DECEMBER 3RD.

Are you ALL IN on #GivingTuesday

New Environmental Club Hosts a Week of Climate Change Awareness from Dec 2 - 6. Peaceful Protest on Dec 5!

The BVMS Environmental Club was formed by students who were inspired by the last global youth climate strike. The new club, sponsored by BV PTA and teacher Alexis Crane, is hosting a week of climate change awareness from December 2- 6th. The culminating event to highlight awareness will be a "student rally/peaceful protest" on Thursday December 5th, immediately following the end of the school day (early release at 1:45). Students will be walking down Elm, then east on Gregory, then north on S. Beverly to the corner of Wilshire and will be on that corner for about 40 minutes. This event has been sanctioned and approved by BHPD.

Club members are asking fellow students every day at lunch to make a pledge to do something "actionable for the environment" that might be looking at their single use plastic consumption like carrying a reusable water bottle or bag. They also lobbied to have recycling added to our school (bins are hopefully going to be delivered this week!)

At their booth at lunch each day in addition to the pledge they have a "make a sign" table so students can make a sign to join the protest on Thursday.

On Thursday parents and staff are invited to make a poster during lunch and to join the Peaceful Protest at 1:45pm.
