The Bigelow PTO will be hosting our annual online auction this Spring. We are looking for volunteers to help solicit local businesses/groups to donate to our auction. Do you have local connections that you can use to help us reach our fundraising goal?
Please join Principal Coston, Bigelow FORJ, and our Boston and Newton families for a fun movie night in Bigelow’s auditorium featuring Black Panther: Wakanda Forever!

Pizza, popcorn, and water will be available. ($1 each)
