What Kind of school do you want BCS to Be?
In every year of BCS history, parents have served on the PTA Board. The PTA board is an essential part of our school. We, the 2018-2019 PTA board members are so proud to have served! We got a lot done! Now it’s YOUR turn - please consider nominating* yourself, or a parent you respect, to serve on the board. Supporting and serving on the PTA is about your choices for the kind of school you want BCS to be. The PTA needs 8-10 parents to come forward to create a board that represents parents, stands up for students, and supports the teachers and administrators at BCS.

What happens if no one comes forward?
Without a PTA board in place:
- we as parents have no voice with the administration.
- there is no one to elect a School Leadership Team. Without a School Leadership Team, we cannot receive our much-needed Title 1 funding.
- teachers will not receive much-needed funds, including support for ETs, classroom science equipment and materials, art and learning supplies, camping trips, extracurricular senior programming, college tours and more.
