Welcome Bascomb Parents!
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Bascomb Elementary School! Bascomb PTA joins you in anticipation of an exciting, productive, and fun year for our children, staff, and school. The creation and implementation of the many events and programs that help make each school year a success are well underway as we launch our 2016-2017 school year!
Based on your positive feedback, we are once again relying on the membership drive for the majority of our fundraising efforts. By utilizing the Membership Packages, as we have in recent years, we hope to avoid sales-oriented fundraisers. To do this, we need to raise at least $45,000 through our membership drive; which will enable us to supplement the membership drive with the minor fundraisers that accompany the Family Fun events our families enjoy.
Bascomb PTA sponsors many events and programs that help enrich your children’s educational experience, while fostering a community of open communication, inclusiveness, and fun! Below are just a few of the many things provided by your Bascomb PTA:
Educational Enhancements: supplies for the Science Resource Room, Science Fun Day, books & materials for the Media Center through coordination of the Book Fairs
School Beautification: playground renovations & maintenance as well as classroom improvements
Arts in Education Program: Reflections, Career Day, Honoring our Heroes and Author & Illustrator visits
Communications: the Bobcat Buzz bi-monthly e-Letter, 1st-5th grade agendas, Kindergarten folders, Room Reps, Facebook & the PTA website
Young Audiences: in-school field trips
Security Enhancements: front office check in system
Family Fun Events: Bobcat 5K Booooooogie in the Fall, Holiday Shop, Spring Carnival, and more!
Health & Safety: extra clinic supplies for the school nurse, Red Ribbon Week, Etowah Zone P.A.S.S. Program
Teacher Appreciation & Teacher Education Sessions: semi-monthly luncheons sponsored by each grade-level, Principal Appreciation Day, Nurse, Appreciation Day, Continuing Education Seminar & Teacher Appreciation Week
Remember, every PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so the cost of your Membership Package is tax deductible (less the spirit incentives).
The key to our ongoing success is our membership. Now is a great time to be a member, leader, and volunteer. There is something for everyone at Bascomb PTA. As always, you can call on any PTA representative with questions about the Bascomb PTA-school relationship and how you can become part of the successful partnership of parents and educators working together for our children!
