Welcome to the 2022/23 Bearspaw School year! Welcome back and a warm welcome to new families.
I’m Emma Lindsey, and I’m President of the Bearspaw School PTA (FBES). Along with the rest of our team, I’d like to thank you for your continued support. Parents are so important to a school’s success, and the PTA is a key way that parents can support our school. Now, by “support,” I’m not just talking about fundraising. Yes, we raise money for library materials, field trips, technology and much more, and you’ll be hearing more from us about that as the school year gets under way. But we also organize and run the Healthy Hunger programme which runs throughout the year starting mid September. And we support school staff members by volunteering and staff appreciation efforts where possible.
Here are just a few of the highlights coming this school year:-
September - Healthy Hunger starts again & we have our Apparel Drive for school branded merchandise.
October - Gift Card Fundraiser just in time for your Christmas shopping and gifts.
November - Our Annual Casino is back - We will need volunteers
January - Greeting Card Fundraiser
March / April - Silent Auction
There are a few more fundraisers to be added as the year progresses, we’ll let you all know as they hit calendars.
If you’re looking for a way to get involved at school, we can help. We have moms, dads, grandparents, and other family and community members who help out. Our volunteers are in the classroom but also at home. Any amount of time you can give is great, whether it’s two hours a year or two hours a week. Whatever works best for you, we can make it work!
An email will be sent out by the school with a Google sheet to sign up for our email list. This way, we can keep you informed about events and volunteer opportunities. And don’t forget to “Like” us on Facebook and Instagram, too.
Thanks again for your support. I look forward to getting to know you this school year!
