Come for an evening of entertainment and laughter on Friday, May 17th at 7 p.m.  BFA’s Bobwhite Comet Competition is a tradition where seniors compete against each other to earn money for college.  You’ll laugh your way through the evening – it’s well worth the $5 admission.  Come early – the PAC fills up for this event!

BFA Gear is Here!  The BFA Student Council is happy to offer one last opportunity to buy items with this year’s BFA logo design.  This is a chance to pick up a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, or a hat for yourself or as a gift.  A great idea if you have a student who will be entering BFA next school year.  You can shop and pay online, then pick up your purchases at Main Street Graphics when they are done.  Items are available in multiple colors and styles.  Click on the link below and take a look at the latest BFA merchandise.  The deadline for all orders is Sunday, May 19, 2019.  The site will close on this day.  https://bfaspringfundraiser2019.itemorder.com/sale
