Can you help the PTSA?

Want to be a part of something? Are you looking for something to keep you busy? Just want to socialize more?

We sure could use your help!!! Meet us at Mid Coast Pizza and More the second or third Tuesday of each month (meeting dates here and find updates on Facebook) at 6pm to learn how you can help the BMS PTSA raise money to support the students and faculty… 

Can’t make the meetings? That’s OKAY!! We can still use your help in other ways, donations of food, items, your time. 

Please check out the calendar of events, and if there is some way you can help, GREAT!!!
