Money, Money, Money

At Bowling Green Junior High, in order for classrooms and sports teams to receive money, they hold fundraisers. The Dollar Cart, Fall Dance, Candy Grams, and Halloween Costume Contest are a few examples of some of the fundraisers held. Candy Grams were sold for two weeks before the week of Valentine’s Day. The Halloween Costume Contest is held every year on the last day of school before Halloween. This year the contest was held October 30, 2015. They benefit our school by raising money for classrooms or equipment.
“I would like more bake sales during lunch,” said Madison McCloughan, an eighth grade student at Bowling Green Junior High School. .
Unfortunately, BGJHS cannot have bake sales during the school day due to state laws. Foods sold have to be regulated by Food Service Coordinators. Low fat, reduced fat, and whole grain foods are the only foods allowed to be sold in school during schools hours. Along with the regulations of the types of foods served, the time that foods can be sold are after lunch, not during lunch. Unfortunately, this means that the times the food is served is not always convenient. This is why we can not have bakes sales during school hours.
In conclusion, business managers of newspaper and broadcast classes raise money to benefit the students, the viewers, readers, by upgrading technology in the classroom. Being a business manager on the newspaper staff is a job just like being a reporter is a job. Sports teams also conduct fundraisers for equipment and uniforms.
