Bethel Hill Charter School Annual Spring BBQ and Auction
Friday, March 28, 2014
It's that time of year again!
Free Lunch Delivery 12:30 - 2:00
**Minimum of 5 plates required for delivery**
Orders must be placed by March 21, 2014
It’s hard to believe it’s BBQ & Auction time again! For those parents who are new to our school, this is our biggest fundraiser of the year.
We will need lots and lots of volunteers to make this our most successful BBQ & Auction yet! You can volunteer and help in many ways. For example, you can donate auction items, donate desserts, sell dinner and raffle tickets, and volunteer your time. Prizes will be given to the parent selling the most dinner as well as the parent selling the most raffle tickets.
Games and supervised play will be provided on the playground and around the campus starting at 4:00.
We will have take-out in the front of the school starting shortly after school is dismissed and people may come in and eat in the cafeteria starting at 4:00.
The annual auction will start at 6:00 pm in the auditorium.
Below you will find the BBQ Sign-Up Sheet that will allow you to indicate how many raffle & dinner tickets you would like, the time you are available to volunteer
and the area you would like to work, as well as, auction donations, and desserts.
The proceeds from the annual BBQ go toward expenditure funding that is not provided by the State of North Carolina, such as building renovations, supplies, computers and other items necessary for the viability of our school and to enhance our children's education.
Congratulations to all of our BHCS winners!

BHCS Spelling Bee Winners
Our annual Spelling Bee was held Friday, January 24. A total of 24 students from third to sixth grade participated in our school spelling bee. Those 24 students achieved this honor by winning a spelling bee that was held in their class earlier in January. Each of those students was given a list of 450 words to study for the school bee. The spelling bee lasted for 15 rounds! Collin Clayton from Mrs. Barker’s fourth grade class won the spelling bee by spelling the word “pontiff”. Katie Waldo from Mrs. Hamlett’s fifth grade class was the runner up. Both of these students represented BHCS in the Central Piedmont Independent Spelling Bee on February 11 at Noble Academy in Greensboro. Congratulations to all of the participants on a job well done!
First Place - Collin Clayton
Runner-Up - Katie Waldo
