Sugar Plum Fair is BVCS’s largest fundraiser and is organized by the CAC (Community Advisory Council). The fundraiser started in the early 2000’s when the government deemed the school’s primary playground equipment unsafe and had it removed with no plans for a replacement playground. A group of parents came up with the idea of the Sugar Plum Fair to raise funds to purchase and install the playground equipment all our kids currently enjoy. This event is strongly supported by the school (students, parents and staff) as well as the community and has become something that everyone looks forward to every other year. The fair is a one day event that has consistently raised between $18 – $20,000 for our school through a variety of activities including:
While you are at the fair, be sure to check out the Country Kitchen – it promises to be the most delicious table you will find! From pies to tarts, cookies to brownies, jams to pickles, cakes to breads, we will have something for everyone! Make sure the kids find our Gingerbread Decorating table too, we have a yummy and fun way to keep them busy !
Island Of Misfit Toys
The Island of Misfit Toys is BVCS’s very own yard sale, selling gently used Toys and Books as an affordable option for students to find gifts for siblings and friends. If you have any misfit toys and books looking for a new home and would like to donate them to the Sugar Plum Fair, there will be a donation box in the front lobby of the school 2 weeks before the Fair from Nov 6th-17th, 2017.
