What's New at BF Day Elementary School

Meet your 2017-18 PTSA Board - there's room for you!

We all meet on the first Monday of every month at 5:30pm.  There's usually hummus and lots of good chat about what is best for school. Hope to see you?



We're getting a new Uppers Playground!

After more than a year of planning and gathering financial support, the Playground Team will be supervising the installation of the new playground on August 19th and August 26th.  Do you want to help? Of course you do!

We need help on Saturday, August 19th between 10-4. There are mutliple shifts, so sign up when you can.  If you've ever desired to build a playground, your day is August 26th! The manufacturer installation supervisors will be there to help volunteers actually make the new playground. EXCITING!  

Please visit our Sign Up Genius page for more information.

Kindergarten Jump start - August 21st @ 9am

Any incoming kindergarteners are welcome to join for Jump Start from 9am -12 pm. This is a great way for the kids new to elementary school to get the feel for what it's like during the day, where their classrooms may be, and just get to know B.F. Day!  Any questions - email or call Carrie Bauer at cbauer@seattleschools.org or 206-



Please come and celebrate with us on May 20th between 12-5 pm for a free and public carnival.

BF Day will be hosting a lovely and fun afternoon celebrating this historic milestone. Things that will be happening include:

  • carnival games (cake walk, face painting, wet sponge toss, are you smarter than a 5th grader?...FUN)
  • drama
  • food trucks
  • live music
  • history tours
  • art walks
  • Powerhouse is open (Thank you, Fremont Arts Council)
  • special guests and dignitaries

We also need volunteers to help make this thing extra awesome.  Come and sign up for a 1.5 hour spot - or even the whole day using this Sign up Genius link.

With deep gratitude to our sponsors: The Hallows Church, Fremont Abbey, Theo's Chocolate, Fred Meyer, PCC and Eldridge Gravy for supporting this historic milestone.


Come and also give feedback to the Playground committee on the new Uppers playground!

What do YOU want to see in the new BF Day Uppers Playground? Magnificent monkey bars? Swirly slides?

The Playground committee will be at the Carnival this Saturday to receive community and school input. Proposed playground layouts from three vendors will be on display - stop by to tell us what you think! Now is your chance to have input into the new design and to share what you can't live without. Layouts will also be on display in the school for one week after the Carnival. The winning design will be finalized in June. This is also your chance to get on the mailing list to stay up-to-date and find out about construction volunteer opportunities later this summer.

See you Saturday!
