7th Grade Winter Wonderland

This first-ever after school ice cream social event for 7th graders will take place in the gym and cafeteria on Wednesday, February 15, 3-5pm. 

In addition to ice cream sundaes, there will be ping pong, board games, their favorite playlist of music, basketball in the gym, and pizza and cotton candy for sale in the cafeteria.  Admission is $5 (sundaes included!), and tickets are on sale during all lunch periods. 

It has been initiated by a group of seventh graders, just for Bigelow’s seventh grade, as an alternative to evening dances, which have attracted less interest in the past year.

It will be a fun afternoon and will build community spirit.  Most importantly, we want the students to have a successful experience in organizing their own event. 

Please encourage your seventh grade child to attend.

Big Night 2017 – Planning Committee

We need YOU to make Bigelow’s Big Night – the biggest FUNdRaising event of the year – a roaring success!

Please consider joining the planning committee – we will need to pick a theme for the night, generate some ideas for the entertainment, set up a timeline, pick point people for donation collection, etc.

See some of the pictures from last year’s Big Night below – the theme was “Bigelow Speakeasy” and everyone had a fantastic time while raising more than $15,000 for the school!

The PTO members who have been most active with the Big Night planning will be leaving Bigelow this year, so wee need new 6th and 7th grade parents to join the planning committee and become familiar with how the event is run so that it can continue to be a success in the coming years.

We realize that everyone has a multitude of demands on your time – you can make Big Night planning as large or small a time commitment as you would like. There are many tasks – small and large, and any help is appreciated!
