BCHS November Newsletter

November 6th, 2017

BCHS Baking Club

Members of this club will be making new and different desserts and, of course, enjoying them, sharing them, or selling them to raise money to buy new equipment, chosen by the club members, for the kitchen. During the school year we will start by meeting two Saturdays a month, except for December and June. During our gathering, the students get about three hours to experiment with various recipes and get to know fellow students in various grade levels from 7-11. We will be hosting a bake sale at school on October 31, 2017 from 11:15-12:00pm. Next gathering will be on November 4th at 1pm at BCHS!
