This year, my focus will be on engaging our families and welcoming new volunteers, so that the PTA can continue to support the programs and experiences at Beacon Park that enrich our children’s lives and foster our Bengal community.

Membership & Pledge Drive

Did you know that this year, PTA is bringing a new BrainStorm STEM Academic Enrichment Program to all 1st through 5th grade Bengals? It's all thanks to your financial contributions! To continue providing crucial funding and support of enrichment and community-building programs like this, you can do two things:

  • JOIN PTA - For only $20/member, you can make your voice heard, connect with other parents, stay informed, and help shape your child’s education! No experience is necessary, and volunteering is optional (but encouraged)!

  • DONATE TO OUR PLEDGE DRIVE (add PTA membership info first) - Your suggested contribution of $250 per family helps support STEM classes, field trips, assemblies, music, Fall Festival, Pajamarama, movie nights, positive behavior rewards, and SO much more! All donations in ANY amount are greatly appreciated and make a positive impact on our children's educational experience.

Classes with 100% membership participation earn a popsicle party, and the class with the highest total donations earns a popsicle AND pizza party!*

Special bonus: Each $250 pledge donation earns a prize drawing entry for donuts with Principal Linville!

*Make sure to add a "Student (Non-Member)" when you join in order to link your membership to your child to qualify for class incentives!
