    Dear 2017-18 B.F. Day Families:

    There is a change in the way we are collecting start-of-school supplies in 2017-18.

    This academic year we are piloting a program where families give a suggested minimum $40/child to the school before AUGUST 21 for school/art supplies​. If this is the first time you are seeing this or are new to B. F. Day please pay for supplies as soon as you can after enrollment. The funds will be batched together where the front office and your child’s teacher will order in bulk for the classroom and art room.

    This allows us to save a tremendous amount of money and ensures the teachers receive the supplies they need.

    Benefits to you:

    • No running around last minute finding supplies (saving gas and energy)
    • You don’t need a supply list
    • You won’t be inadvertently purchasing supplies that the classroom won’t use

    Benefits to the school:

    • Teachers ensure they receive the supplies they need/require
    • Lower cost due to bulk ordering
    • Less 1st day of school supply management

    Please write a check or bring by cash for your child. You can also write a check and send it to BF Day Elementary School 3921 Linden Ave N. Seattle, WA 98103.  Next year we should be able to utilize electronic funds - not yet, sorry.

    Family assistance is also available upon request.

    Please don’t hesitate to ask. Questions? Email Carrie Bauer at cbauer@seattleschools.org or call 206-252-6010.
