    Want to be a part of Owl Walk? 

     
    The sponsorship committee is proud to announce a partnership with the Bensalem Alumni Association to create Owl Walk, a commemorative brick walkway that will be installed near the main entrance of the high school as part of the final phase of the renovation. Funds raised by this project will be used to support needs in the library. 
     
    Bricks can be purchased in 4"x 8" or 8"x 8" sizes:
    • 4" x 8" bricks cost $100 each  and can be inscribed with up to 3 lines of 18 characters* each.
    • 8" x 8" bricks cost $200 each and can be inscribed with up to 6 lines of 18 characters* each.
    *Spaces and symbols also count as characters.
     
    Donor certificates and commemorative bricks can be ordered for an additional fee when placing online orders.
     
    Bricks can be ordered in the following ways: 
    • Order online at www.bricksrus.com/order/BHS
    • Complete this form and submit payment with check payable to "Bensalem Education Foundation." Orders can be mailed to Bensalem Education Foundation, Attn: Owl Walk, 3000 Donallen Dr, Bensalem, PA 19020
     
    Bensalem Township School District, Bensalem Alumni Association and Bensalem Education Foundation have the right to review text for appropriateness and to decline those that do not reflect the spirit of the project.
     
     
    Frequently Asked Questions
     
    When will the walk be installed?
    The installation will not occur until the renovation is almost complete, so the goal would be a fall 2017 installation. However, it will depend on how the renovation progresses since we will not want the bricks to be installed while equipment is still being moved into and out of the building.
     
    Where will the walk be located?
    The walk is planned near the sidewalk area to the right side of the main entrance.
     
    Can I use a logo on the brick?
    Yes, logos can be placed on bricks for a set-up fee of $50 plus $5 engraving fee per brick ordered with the logo.
    • For example, if you want an 8" x 8" brick with a logo, it will cost $255 ($200 brick cost + $50 logo set-up fee + $5 engraving fee). 
    • If you want two 8" x 8" bricks with the same logo on them the first one would cost $255, but the second one would only cost $205.
     
    Because of variation in the size of logos, the amount of space that remains for lettering will vary on a case by case basis. Therefore, the logo would need to be submitted in advance of any text requests. so that the company can evaluate the spacing and determine the remaining number of characters.

    What is a donor gift certificate and a donor commemorative brick?
    The vendor for this project, Bricks R Us, offers people who place online orders these additional options. The donor certificate costs an additional $10 and show an image of a brick with the inscription on the brick purchased for the walk. The donor commemorative brick costs an additional $25 or $35 (depending upon which size brick you ordered) and is a duplicate brick that comes with a felt backing for display. These opportunities are only available for online orders.
     
    Can I purchase a brick and put someone else's name on it?
    Yes, you can purchase a brick in honor or memory of another person. However, as with every brick order, the Bensalem Township School District, the Bensalem Alumni Association and the Bensalem Education Foundation have the right to review text for appropriateness and to decline those that do not reflect the spirit of the project. 
     
    Can I pick the color of brick?
    No. The color of bricks has been determined in advance. They will be natural gray in color.
