BVMS Spring Fling is a ‘White Out!’
By Staff reports

April 23. 2014 9:22AM
“White Out” is the theme for the 2014 Brandon Valley Middle School Spring Fling. The combination art show, talent show and dance are scheduled for this Friday, April 25.

Spring Fling is the primary fundraising event for the BVMS Parent Teacher Student Organization. Each year parents, teacher, and students coordinate their efforts to showcase Middle School talent. The PTSO plans decorations, entertainment, concessions, tickets sales, etc for the evening festivities.

Doors will open at BVMS at 6 p.m. for public viewing of student art. The art show is located in the media center. Ink drawings, pottery, contour line drawings, paintings, portraits, and perspective drawings are just some of the examples of art created by BVMS students that will on display.

The variety show begins in the gym at 6:30. Students who were interested in performing in the show auditioned before a panel of teachers. The judges selected acts that will entertain the audience with their vocal, instrumental and dance talent.

Spring Fling concludes with a dance for all middle school students (6-8th grades) from 8 to 9:30 p.m. The gymnasium will be transformed in to a “White Out” that evening.
Souvenir photos and light up novelties will be for sale to enhance the White Out theme. Music will be provided by Rich Blue, and a variety of concessions, including pizza, will be available for purchase throughout the evening.

The Spring Fling is the major fundraiser for the PTSO (similar to the PTA in the elementary school). PTSO is designed to help support the students and staff of the BVMS. Activities throughout the year include sponsoring the Book Fair, helping host parent-teacher conferences, serving meals for teachers during conferences, selling spirit wear, providing recognition for staff, and the annual Spring Fling. Members feel that the BVMS provides a great atmosphere and learning environment for students, and want to help the school’s efforts. Any input or help is always welcome.Watch the middle school newsletter or marquee for meeting dates and times.

The cost for BVMS students to attend all events at the Spring Fling is $5 for adults, grade high school students may attend the variety and art shows for $3.
