Football Itinerary and Update 8/29

Parents: Concession Stand Help (Thursday concessions cancelled)

Parents, we are still in need of volunteers for Friday's football game here at BWHS. As of this morning, the Home side will not be ready for Thursday's game due to construction not being completed (final inspections). Thank you if you signed up for Thursday but we will not be needing concessions for Thursdays game.  Be sure to sign up for Friday!! We need all hands on deck as this will be a HUGE game. Below is the link to sign up. It looks like the spots are filling up but we still need a few more!!


Parents: Phone Call Help

We are looking for some parents to call our donor list to ask for donations for our silent auction for Centerton Days! The date is coming up quick and we would like to make a few last minute calls to some local businesses. If you are interested please contact Wendy Parker
