Apple Pie Day 2017
Friday, October 27th
Order your pies now!
Every year, the BCS family comes together for a day and makes well over 3,500 fresh Dutch apple pies for our annual fundraiser. We’ve been making our “famous” pies for 18 years now. Don’t miss out, place your order today!

Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help make our amazing pies. We ask that each current school family give at least 8 hours per family (grandparents and friends can help with that, too!) and we encourage all of our school supporters to come out and get involved. We can sign off on service hours for high school students, as well.

All About Apple Pie Day
How do we do it?
Wednesday night, you’ll find many helping hands assembling boxes and setting up. On Thursday morning, topping is made and that evening, hundreds of bushels of apples are delivered. By Friday night, hundreds of pounds of sugar, flour, cinnamon and apples are transformed into thousands of the most delicious Dutch apple pies you’ll ever taste!
Who can take part?
We welcome help from all over! Parents, staff, alumni, grandparents and friends of the school all show up to pitch in. High school students, including many BCS alumni, come from all over the area to help (and earn volunteer hours!), adding a welcome surge of youthful enthusiasm. Everyone has a great time on the assembly line renewing acquaintances, peeling, coring, slicing, inspecting, filling, boxing, bagging, hauling, and cleaning.
How can I get my hands on some of those pies?
Pies can be ordered by contacting your favorite BCS student, contacting our school office, or clicking the online order form link above.
How can I help during the event?
Many opportunities for people of all ages are available to make this event the huge success it is. Online volunteer registration link is above (or will open closer to the date for on-site help). We also welcome donations of food and beverages to feed the hungry volunteers throughout the day.
If you would like to help underwrite the costs of some of the materials needed to make and package the pies, please contact our Apple Pie Day Coordinators.
Is childcare available if I help at BCS on Pie Day?
Yes! We are able to provide free supervision for children of on-site pie day volunteers only (if you leave the site, we will need you to take your kids with you). Please register your child(ren) online (available through the Volunteer Form). Thank you!
