PTA Membership & Pledge Drive Update

Pledge Drive

WOW, we're officially HALFWAY to our goal of $35,000 and we're not even two weeks into school! THANK YOU all of you who have already donated. If you've donated $250 or more, be on the lookout for your name displayed on our Bengal Backer wall, coming soon outside of the PAC!


Only 21% of our members have donated so far. If every member who has not yet donated gave $63, we'd already be at our goal! Whether it's $10 or $250, every little bit helps your child, so please consider donating if you haven't already done so.


NEW INCENTIVE: In addition to being entered into a raffle for Donuts with Mr. Linville, students of families who donate at least $250 will get a FREE Kona Ice!

Attention Bengal Artists!

Submission deadline: Thursday, October 20th

(late submissions will not be accepted after this date)

Submission link coming soon!


The PTA Reflections Art Program encourages students to unleash creative talents and be inspired by expressing themselves imaginatively in their artwork. Students will tap into critical thinking skills to create art inspired by this year’s theme “Show Your Voice!”


All K-8 students are encouraged to experience the joy of making original works of art. Submissions can be in any of the following categories:


Literature

Photography

Visual Arts

Dance Choreography

Music Composition

Film Production


Artworks are submitted first to our PTA, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged in grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. A selection of entries are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.

More Info & Updates

Volunteering

THANK YOU to the many parents who have already signed up to volunteer for our various programs this year! We are so grateful for your support - know that by volunteering your time, YOU are making a positive impact on our Bengal students! If you haven't yet signed up to volunteer, you can do so HERE.

This year we are excited to bring two NEW programs on board - a Cultural Event (tentatively scheduled for January 26th), and an adults-only Gala to celebrate our Silent Auction (tentatively scheduled for March 3rd). We are looking for one co-chair to join our existing one for the Cultural Event, and also two or more co-chairs for the Gala. We will not be able to run these events if we do not find people to chair or co-chair, so please reach out if you're interested in helping these two awesome events come to fruition!

Boba at Back-to-School Night

We were able to raise $121 for our school during our Back-to-School Night boba fundraiser! We appreciate the support of everyone who placed pre-orders and ordered at the time of the event.
