    How are BTES PTA Funds Used?

    Did you know that state and county funds do not cover the most desired and important activities that help our children grow? Our teachers are also reaching into their own pockets to make their classrooms the wonderful places that our children grow to love. Funds from PTA memberships, sponsorships and donations are used to cover a variety of activities at our school. Without your support the following programs would not exist:


    • Events:

      • Teacher Welcome Back Breakfast
      • New 2 School breakfast

      • Back to School Bash
      • Fall Fest
      • Father Daughter Dance

      • Mom Son Fun Night

      • Donuts for Dad

      • Muffins with Mom
