T-shirt fundraiser to benefit BES Leader in Me program

The Bucyrus Elementary School is offering students, their families, staff and the Bucyrus community the opportunity to show their support for the BES Leader in Me program through a t-shirt fundraiser. Orders will be accepted for the t-shirts through Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Those purchasing a t-shirt can choose from five different designs, which were created by students in this year’s 5th grade class. All t-shirts are red with white letters and design.

“We are continually trying to find new ways to engage our students to develop their leadership skills,” Bucyrus Elementary Principal Tim Souder said. “Allowing the students to develop the t-shirt designs and vote on their favorites is one example of how we are empowering students to take ownership of their life.”

Proceeds from the t-shirt fundraiser will be used to support the development of student leaders at Bucyrus Elementary School. Activities being supported by this fundraiser include the BES Leadership Luncheons, the annual Leadership Day, Leader in Me professional development activities for staff and other initiatives that support the continued successful implementation of the Leader in Me program at BES.

T-shirts are $15 each plus $1.50 for 2XL and 3XL t-shirts, and order forms will be sent home with students Wednesday, August 22. Additional order forms are available in the school office or online at bucyrusschools.org/schools/elementary-school. Please contact the Bucyrus Elementary School office at 419-562-6089 if you have questions or need assistance placing an order.
