Hello Parents/Guardians, Today, your BMS student is bringing home a Parent Information Envelope letting you know about a safe and easy way for our school to raise funds for essential reading materials our students and teachers need to succeed. The Reading For Education fundraiser is 100% online so there is no face-to-face selling, handling money, or delivering products. Your participation will take less than 12 minutes, and there are exciting prizes to make it fun for the students. Here is all you need to do to participate: 1. Go to https://www.rfe.net/sid.t?0000363712 to sign up. 2. Send form emails inviting family, friends, and co-workers to support your child. 3. Return the Envelope with the Student Prize Code to school for your child to get their fun participation prize. Be sure to ask your child for the Parent Information Envelope tonight. Your participation will make a difference for our school and teachers! Thanks, Bauxite Middle School
