Lincoln, Lola, Coraline, Abby, Camille, and Anna went to BREC's 2-week Independence Park Theatre Musical Camp, and participated in Madagascar Jr, the Musical! The show was hilarious, and our students had a great time in the performance!

Many thanks to everyone who helped our teams reach Global Finals. We made new friends from all over the world... a girl from Maryland, a boy from Singapore, a group from Australia... Our world and our STEAM knowledge grew exponentially this week, watching other teams and trying new things.
Just before we left, BRCVPA Destination Imagination was honored in the Louisiana Senate by Senate Resolution 251, authored by Senator Claitor. The resolution recognizes the creativity, critical thinking, team building, problem solving, risk taking, project management, and perseverance instilled in students through DI. Many thanks to Lenore Heavey, parent of Clare A., who was inspired by our DI teams. We are indeed honored and grateful for the recognition, and we are already planning for next year!

Saturday, 4 of our BRCVPA students competed in BREC's Rocketkidz Rookies Triathlon at Liberty Lagoon.
The Rocketkidz Rookies Triathlon has 3 divisions: 3-4 year olds, 5-6 year olds, and 7-10 year-olds. Wesley H., Remie S., Raylan M., and Cade G. made BRCVPA proud as they swam, biked, and ran their way across the finish line!
The Piatkiewicz family came out to support the race as well, and their schoolmates loved having more fans in the crowd.
The mission of RocketKidz Foundation is to create and sustain active, fit, and healthy children, families, and communities through programming, advocacy, and education. For more information, visit their website.
It was great seeing our BRCVPA family this Saturday. We'd love to have even more students participate next year!

The school year has come to an end but Shoparoo earnings year is still in session! There are 3 months left to continue earning donations and monthly sweepstakes entries for BRCVPA! Keep uploading those receipts and spread the word!
What is Shoparoo?
What is Shoparoo?
Shoparoo is a free app for iOS and Android phones that allows anyone to take pictures of their shopping receipts and earn cash donations for their schools!
Just snap a picture of your grocery receipt on your smartphone, and voila, you've made an instant cash donation! You can also take pictures of your non-grocery receipts (from clothing stores, electronics stores, restaurants, home improvement stores, etc.) for entries into Shoparoo's cash donation sweepstakes that can reward a school up to $15,000! Parents, teachers and other supporters love Shoparoo because:
What makes Shoparoo Different?
With nothing to buy, sell, collect, count or mail-in, Shoparoo is the most hassle-free fundraising program available. In comparison to other grocery-related fundraising programs, Shoparoo does not require you to buy specific brands or products to raise money for school. This means that EVERY shopping receipt (regardless of whether it's from the biggest super center or your Mom-and-Pop store on the corner) will earn your school an instant donation or entry into our sweepstakes!
Where does the Donation Money come From?
We are former teachers and retail industry executives who have found a novel way of matching schools' needs for financial support with major consumer brands needs for market research. Your receipt data along with the answers you provide in optional surveys are made anonymous and summarized in market research reports that brands purchase.
For example, these companies pay for information such as, "Families in the Phoenix area are 20% more likely than the rest of the country to shop for laundry detergent at a supercenter than a traditional grocery store." Rest assured that all research data is anonymous.
How much money can be raised with Shoparoo?
There is no limit to how much a school can raise with Shoparoo! The top earning schools last year earned thousands of dollars, just by encouraging everyone to take pictures of the day to day shopping receipts!
The more supporters you have at your school, the more you'll earn. That's why schools who had someone to lead the way and spread the word to the community saw these efforts reflected in their fundraising check from Shoparoo at the end of the school year. A school with roughly 50 active participants raise ~$1000 each year through Shoparoo!
