BPS will be having a Veteran's Day Program honoring all branches of the military on November 11, 2014.
If you are a veteran, we would like to invite you to eat breakfast in our BPS Cafeteria at 8:30.  Then we invite you to enjoy a celebration to honor all branches of the military in the auditorium at 9:30.

BPS would love to earn free equipment and supplies!! Our Bi-Lo savings code is 55938!

The BI-LO Hometown Educational Rewards program allows parents and supporters to link their personal BI-LO BONUSCARD® to local schools (up to 3 schools). Then, each time they shop with their personal BONUSCARD®, the school automatically earns points towards free equipment and supplies! Throughout the year, the points that schools accumulate can be redeemed for free educational items from the BI-LO catalog.
We need our BPS parents, along with our community, to link their BI-LO card with our BPS code!  Click on the BI-LO logo above or go to:
Thank you for your support!
