Mark your calendar! Apple Pie Day 2016 will be November 18, 2016!
Every year, the BCS family comes together for a day and makes about 4,000 fresh Dutch apple pies for our annual fundraiser. We’ve been making our “famous” pies for more than 16 years now!
Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help make our amazing pies. We ask that each current school family give at least 6 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 and margarine 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, slinging dough, 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. To order directly, contact our school office during our sale period in November (pick up orders only).
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 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. Thank you!
