The BAC supports Burlington is by providing financial support for its programs and student activities.
How does the BAC raise funds?
- Donations, Spellathon is our primary fundraiser. This fundraiser is run completely in house so the BAC retains not a portion of the proceeds but ALL of the proceeds. For this reason, Spellathon is the best and most effective way for you to support the school with you financial contribution. BAC is a 503c tax exempt organization. When you give to Spellathon your gift is tax deductible because you do not receive a product or service in return.
- Give a little—Get a little, refers to a group of fundraisers in which you give something and get something in return. For each $20 Pay Back Coupon book you buy, Burlington will receive $10 and you will receive coupons for savings at local businesses. At our monthly Spirit Nights, Burlington receives a portion of the restaurant’s proceeds and you enjoy great food and a night off from kitchen duty.
- Money for Nothing is a way to support Burlington by doing the things you already do. Use a reloadable gift card for groceries you already purchase at King Soopers and Safeway and 5% of the money you spend goes to Burlington! Clipping Box Tops from products you buy and sending them with your child to school is another way to support Burlington.
Where does the BAC money go?
- Field trip transportation, special enrichment programs and other student activities are all supported by the BAC.
- Teacher Wish Lists are items beyond what the district provides that our teachers and staff request for their classrooms and students. This can be anything from technology to literacy material to teacher training. If our teachers think something is important for our kids, we want to give it to them.
- Para-educator hours are a new addition to the BAC budget. Para-educators, or teachers’ aides, work with teachers and assist them with classroom instruction typically in small groups of students. As parents we cannot use our funds to hire more teachers but we can hire more para-educators.
