Welcome Back to School from Beall PTA!
Joining the Beall Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a great way to learn about our school and connect with other parents. We have an active, committed group of members, which we hope will include you this year.
The Beall PTA has many exciting events planned this year, including the Dragon Disco, Movie Night, Science Fair, and our annual Staff vs. Parents Basketball Challenge. The Beall PTA also funds cultural arts assemblies and provides financial support for teacher supplies and training, among other activities. Look for more information on extra-curriculars and fall events coming home in backpack mail over the next few weeks.
The most important way you can support your school community is by becoming a member of the PTA. 100% of your membership dues goes directly to activities that enrich your child’s experience at Beall. In the past two years, we have raised money to purchase new playground equipment, purchased LCD projectors for classrooms to use with smartboard technology, and supported teacher Junior Great Books training. In addition, when you become a member of the PTA, you also receive a copy of the Beall Student Directory—which includes contact information for our student body. This resource is incredibly useful for scheduling play dates, getting copies of class notes when your child has been out, or sending birthday invites.
PTA meetings are held once a month. Evenings are busy for everyone—so PTA meetings run from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and do not run over. Babysitting is provided, free of charge, for current Beall students. You can view our meeting calendar online at: www.beallpta.org. Our first PTA meeting is October 4. We hope to see you!
There’s lots to talk about and lots to do this year at Beall. Join us on October 4 to begin!
