The Boondoggle Event is coming! What is a “Boondoggle” you ask? BMS PTO is planning an adventure race type event where 10 teams from every grade level will compete in some of the wackiest challenges you have ever seen! The prize? The honor of being Champions of the Boondoogle! We want to encourage the students to participate by either entering as a team of 6 – or by coming out with their family and friends and cheering on those who are competing. Think of it as the wacky Olympics of Baines.
April 25th – 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
