Our Shoe Drive goes through Halloween

We are collecting gently used or new shoes (all sizes) through Student Council and our 'Spark Change' program, formerly Penny Harvest. All shoes will be donated to people in need and $0.40 per pound will be given back to The Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue. Shoe Drive through 10/31 (Halloween) Thank you for your help and support as we teach our students the meaning of philanthropy and helping others.

You are invited to the next BRE PTO MEETING:  TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1st at 6:30 PM in the BRE gym.  Light refreshments and childcare will be provided.

Guest speakers include the new Erie Middle School Principal, Mrs. Kim Watry, to share info and answer questions about EMS.  We will also have two of our own teachers, Mrs. Jill Martus and Mrs. Tiffany Goodman, share about the “Spark Change” program.

Come and hear the latest PTO updates, share your ideas and get your questions answered.  Hope to see you there!



In yesterday's Thursday folders, the oldest child in the household was sent home with a reloadable King Soopers gift card in celebration of next week's Grand Opening of the Erie King Soopers!  The reloadable card has $2.50 on it and instructions are included as to how to reload the card.  The card is linked to Black Rock and when you use it, 5% back of your purchase amount goes back to Black Rock Elementary PTO.  It can be used on groceries, toys, household items, Gas, and more!  Last year we made over $9000 with 40 families participating in this free money program.  We encourage you to use the card to help benefit programs at Black Rock Elementary.  With any questions, please contact Heather Greger at

We are so lucky at Black Rock to have incredible businesses that support us. Please help us return the favor by supporting their businesses!
