In an effort to purchase playground equipment that our Kindergarten-5th grade students can enjoy, we are going to be participating in a variety of fundraising activities. Currently we are selling chocolate bars after school each day and have a "Pennies for the Playground" masterpiece located in our front entry way where you and our students can donate any spare change you may have. Our goal is to raise $45,000, so we need your help! Please visit our PCS Website, look for flyers sent home, and visit our Bessemer Academy Facebook Page for updated information about upcoming fundraisers. To see a picture of the playground we would like to purchase, please open the file attached.
