Vote to get Rocky (Nugget's Mascot) at BRE! Jan 28th-Feb 1st

               We love a good competition at BRE! Vote Daily!!
 
Nutrition Services has an exciting promotion called "Eat Healthy, Play Healthy" coming to BRE school.  In collaboration with the Denver Nuggets, Tyson Foods, and Dannon, we will be holding two contests that could win your school a chance to have lunch with Rocky and/or win a $500 micro grant that will go towards lunchroom and kitchen improvements.  (Dates Rocky will visit are: Elementary - Tuesday, February 12, 2019 and Middle - Thursday, February 7, 2019.)

We are asking that you help spread the word to your school community to increase your chances of winning.

To have Rocky come to your school for lunch, your school needs to get the most votes.  To do this, students, parents and staff can submit their votes to  https://www.k12-promo.com/douglas

Voting opens 1/28/2019 and closes 2/1/2019
Only one vote per person per day.

The micro grants are awarded to the schools who have the highest increase in participation for the three days we are serving the featured Mega Mini and Dannon Dipping Sauce. We have divided schools into groups by feeder area. These groups will be working together to achieve the highest increase. The goal is to encourage students to try  the new "nuggets" (aka-Mega Mini's) on these dates and show an increase over historical data.

Spirit Rock


               Parents, Students & Staff have the opportunity to "Rent the Rock" to recognize a student's birthday, show school spirit, thank or recognize a teacher or staff member, congratulatory events, etc.  It is a great way to spread positive messages and increase excitement in our community! $25 during the school year and $25 during the summer.  100% of your donation goes to BREA.  Payments are accepted online through MySchool Bucks at this link or by check payable to BREA.  Checks must be dropped off to the front office prior to the rental date - with your name & date written in the memo.
