For the remainder of this week, the space between the north and south buildings will need to be kept clear for facilities work. This means that space will not be available for gathering during lunch, before or after school. Thank you for your cooperation!
Online registration is now open for anyone interested in playing a winter sport. Please go to the Athletic webpage and follow the online registration directions.
The Awards dessert banquet will be held on Tuesday, November 12th from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Gym. This event was rescheduled from last month. Students who will be receiving their academic pin will receive a letter inviting them and their families to this event.
Attention 9th & 12th Graders: The Nurses will be doing vision exams this week for grades 9 & 12. If you received an appointment card, please see one of the nurses at that time.

If you’ve already had breakfast in the North Building, you will need money on your account or cash to purchase an additional breakfast. Menu will change throughout the year.
Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Bar
Ski & Snowboard Club meeting on Friday (11/8) during Enrichment in the PAC.
Gaming Club will meet on Friday (11/8) from 2:50-4:50 p.m. in Science Room E-205. All are welcome!
All Staff and Students: We are putting together a bulletin board in the lobby by the
Main Office for Veterans Day. We want to emphasize that this day is to show respect
and gratitude to all who have served in U.S. Military Forces. If you have a photo of a
family member, friend, or (for some) yourself, we will copy it for the display. If you
don’t have a photo but would like to acknowledge someone, we will have special
paper and markers in the lobby on Friday with examples of some options that would
be appropriate. We hope this display will show how many in our school community
are connected to someone who has served this country and instill a sense of respect
to be carried with them to the Veterans Day Parade and the service in Taylor Park.
Castleton University is coming to BFA for a visit. The college representative will be here on Wednesday, November 13th at 8:45 a.m. during Enrichment. If you are interested in attending a presentation, please stop in the Guidance Office and sign-up. Please take a pass for your Enrichment teacher to sign giving you permission to attend.

COAT DRIVE: Our students have been working hard to prepare for the coat drive. Last year BFA Rotary Interact and the BFA community donated over 600 coats to the local organizations that support Franklin County's residents. This year we hope to double that number. We are also accepting gloves/mittens and children's winter boots.
Please consider donating. Everyone deserves a warm coat.
We have five drop-off sites:
BFA - across from the Main Office.
Saint Albans Town School
Georgia Elementary School
FOUND: A set of car & house keys was found. If they could be yours, please stop by the Main Office to identify.
