School Supply Wish List

Electronic Reader Board

Bidwell Jr. High students, staff, and PTA are respectfully requesting donations for a new electronic reader for the front of our school.  This would be a wonderful addition to our upcoming remodel and refacing starting in 2015.  It would be instrumental in helping us inform our parents and community of the many events and positive activities our students and school are involved in. Our PTA is spearheading the project and would greatly appreciate any support to achieve this goal. Chico local business - Hupp Signs & Lighting has graciously taken on our project, as they have for many other schools in our area.

How to Donate:

1.    Electronically at http://www.gofundme.com/msrv9s

2.    Write a check to Bidwell PTA and turn it in to the main office.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. We greatly appreciate your support!
