Following a successful “soft opening” in the week leading up to Valentine’s Day, the high school’s first-ever card shop is officially open for business selling greeting cards for all occasions.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for Paper Pastries was held on Friday, March 15 and was attended by several high school students, staff members and by administrators including BCHS Principal Dave Doemel, Superintendent Jody Monroe and Director of Special Education and Student Services Kathy Johnston. Principal Doemel cut the ceremonial ribbon just before the shop began serving customers. The card shop is expected to be open daily during fourth, sixth and seventh periods. It is located in the school’s busy foyer outside the cafeteria.

The shop is run by students and staff in the LEAD program. Unlike the pop-up store that sold only Valentine’s Day cards in February, the official Paper Pastries shop is offering greetings that will appeal to both students and staff year-round. Colorful cards with birthday wishes and many “thinking-of-you” sentiments like “You rock” and “Consider yourself hugged” line the display rack at the new store. The cards are $1 each or three for $2.

Student Joey Furlong, who was the first student in charge of sales during the Paper Pastries Grand Opening event, also filmed a commercial encouraging BCHS students and staff to think of Paper Pastries “when you care enough to send a special treat.”

Congratulations to Joey and to all of the LEAD students and staff, including teachers Sue Yzquierdo and Paula DiBiase, who worked so hard to bring Paper Pastries to BCHS. #makingBCproud
