Supper Stroll Registration is still open! Please reserve your seat here. Only 10 seats left!
You must register to secure your seat. This event is very popular and it is expected to sell out.
The Supper Stroll is a progressive dinner and is held at several homes in succession on one night. A single course is served at each home. At the first home everyone gathers for appetizers, you then go to a second home for dinner with 8-12 people, then everyone meets again to finish the night with desserts at a third house. The Supper Stroll has been an enjoyable fundraiser for many, many years. Adults in the Bigelow Community are welcome to participate.
Please join us! We hope to see you!

PartyLite Candle Sale
Just in time for the upcoming holidays, we are selling a variety of candles and scented sticks as a fundraiser for student programs at Bigelow.
On Friday, October 27, students took home packets with photos and descriptions of the products on sale, and an order form.
All orders should be returned to the main office by November 9, with checks payable to Bigelow Middle School. Delivery is usually in 2-3 weeks and all orders are shipped directly to the student’s home address. Or if an out-of-state relative makes an order, we can arrange to ship it directly to their address.
More information here.
Top selling students will win prizes and be entered in a raffle for a grand prize. Check out here.
Fragrant samples are available in the school main office. Stop by for a sniff!
Sponsored by the Bigelow Middle School and the Bigelow PTO.
