Big Give 2017 Coming Soon


Birney’s Annual Big Give Event is December 14th!

On Thursday, December 14ththe Friends of Alice Birney will be hosting our 7th annual Big Give in an effort to raise much needed funds in order to maintain our IB program.  This includes IB certification fees, Specials Classes (Garden, Spanish, and Art), and IB Enrichment opportunities like Field Trips and Assemblies. Our IB program is what differentiates Birney from other Elementary schools. The maintenance of this program is $250 a year per student.  That is just $1.50 a day per student!

The concept for this fund raiser is simple.  On Thursday, the 14th go to the Friends of Alice Birney website between the hours of 7AM to 7PM and click on the Big Give link and make your donation.  That’s it!  Then continue to watch the site as donations come in to see if we meet our goal.

Thanks in advance for your crucial support! Be on the lookout for more reminder emails in the week ahead and spread the word!  Please feel free to share with your friends and family. Get ready to give to the Big Give!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

Birney Night Out

A huge thank you is in order to the amazing Birney Night Out Crew who organized a totally rad 80’s-themed party, including a silent auction, raffle, and costume contest! While the adults enjoyed the event at U31, the kids had a super Pajama Party at school. All this fun led to a grand total of $6,500 raised in support of the IB program at Birney! Big thanks to everyones’ efforts to SAVE FOABE!
