Field Day 2015
Field Day will be May 22nd. We will be taking orders for the annual Field Day 2015 t-shirts. Order a shirt for yourself and one for your student! T-shirts will be onsale tonight at Jam the Gym and you can send the order form and $10 cash in with your student. Hurry deadline for t-shirt orders is April 30th.
Beaver Tech’s first ever Technicolor Run was a huge success. It took place on Friday, April 17, 2015. Wearing white shirts, waves of runners passed through various stations, and were sprayed with a special powder paint. Each shirt became a unique blend of color and pattern. It was wonderful seeing many familiy members join in the fun.
There where about 600 participants, including a whopping 85% of the student body. The PTA raised $2800.00 from this spring fundraiser. Special thanks to the many volunteers who showed up to help.
