BSI PTO traditionally holds many events throughout the year with the goals of fundraising and building community. These are all run by, staffed by, and enjoyed by YOU, BSI families!
Nothing is written in stone, and our amazing parents come up with new events every year, but in general you can expect these events:
Ice Cream Social Welcome Party
September at BSI
Especially geared towards welcoming new families.
This is the event of the season and it gets better every year!
Bouncy castles, carnival games, international food, raffles!
Throughout the year at BSI
These are usually organized by class parents and grade reps, or by neighborhood, and are often simply a meetup in a playground or park.
BSI Book Fair at the Center for Fiction
November at Center for Fiction - across the street from BAM
BSI teachers come throughout the day to read their favorite books. Kids get together with their friends, and BSI PTO gets a portion of every purchase that day.
Read to raise money for BSI!

The party of the year! BSI family, friends, teachers and staff gather for some grown-up fun. Cocktails, food, music and dancing to celebrate each other, our kids and our school.
