Chaperones Needed!  New BWLS rules in effect!

We are in need of chaperones for our trips this fall!

Big Walnut Local Schools now require all chaperons/volunteers to have a background check and application on file with the school district.  To do so, please visit http://www.bwls.net and click on Parents/Community to scroll to “Volunteer Opportunities”.  Volunteers need to do this at least one week prior to the trip.  All of our chaperones and equipment bus drivers need to do this ASAP!
