The Friends of BLA funded many items in the 2014-2015 school year. These included agenda books for all Sixies and Beezies, math software, books, science kits, school-musical licensing expenses, and scholarships. The organization also provided mini-grants to support clubs and activities, including Certamen, the science fair, the poetry slam, the sports banquet, mock trials, and the world languages bazaar.
BLA issues each student a combination lock that must be used to secure the student’s locker.
Students in Ms. Roche’s class made this video to show how the combination locks.
(Update May 13, 2016: We no longer use the “blue books” that are mentioned in the video.)
