Don't Forget, Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So enjoy all you can eat pancakes and also help out the PTA. The money earned will help support student assemblies, field trips and events.

Don't Forget the Birney Rummage Sale and Pancake Breakfast this weekend!

Saturday, May 15th

It is cleaning time, so get through those closets, garages and junk drawers, and help raise money for Birney Elementary while you simplify your life. You have two great options for your treasures.

1. Reserve a space to sell your wares
2. Drop off your treasures for the PTA to sell at their table (which will raise funds to help the PTA sponsor assemblies and field trip for our students)

Families, Crafters and Artists Welcome!
This will be a community wide event, and we can only accommodate 50 vendors. Shaded spaces are approximately 9 ft x 20 ft, and are available on a 1st paid, 1st reserved basis only. Unshaded spaces are slightly larger (canopies are welcome). The Birney PTA will provide all advertisement prior to the event and pick-up of USABLE discards afterward! (a list will be provided of items that can not be left behind, on the day of the event or you can download it here)

There will also be refreshments available.

Starting on Tuesday, April 20th there will be a drop off bin
in front of the school in the morning and after school until 5:30 pm.

The rummage sale and pancake breakfast will be held on the playground at Birney Elementary Saturday, May 15 from 6:30 am - 2:00pm (gates open to public at 8:00 am)

To participate or for more information e-mail us at
