At its core, PTA is a membership association. When our membership is vibrant and robust, our influence at the school, district, state, and national levels is powerful.

A portion of the BDJH PTA membership fee goes to support the advocacy that Texas PTA and National PTA do on behalf of all school children.

If you are not already a member, add your voice to our cause. Join PTA TODAY!


We need your help with "baby pictures" of your 8th Grade student. It doesn't have to be as a baby, it could be as a toddler or kindergarten.

Just follow the link below to submit it. Please read the instructions carefully.
