PTA Mission

The Bridge School PTA (Parent Teacher Association) warmly welcomes you to the 2013-2014 school year. Our mission is to provide Bridge School with funds, programs, resources and support that will enhance our children's experience. We seek to help parents and elementary students actively participate in the Bridge community in ways that complement the teachers and staff. Our programs touch many aspects of your child's experience at Bridge.

According to the National PTA, "Family participation in education is twice as predictive of students' academic success as family socioeconomic status or parents' level of education. When parents come to school regularly, it reinforces the view in the child's mind that school and home are connected and that school is an integral part of the whole family's life." Bridge School is fortunate to have an enthusiastic and active community!

We are excited about the months and years ahead, and hope that you take a moment to learn about the Bridge PTA. Your involvement in the PTA will help connect you to your child's experience at Bridge School and enable you become a part of a flourishing community. We hope to be a resource for you and welcome your questions and ideas.

The PTA has a role for everyone. Our goal is to include as many parents and families as possible, whether volunteering in the Library, helping to create safe walking routes to school, being a room parent, or developing new fundraisers. Opportunities vary from one-time events to ongoing projects and committees. Click here for a list of the PTA's 40+ Committees.

We encourage you to join the PTA - your membership benefits include a complementary copy of the Bridge School Directory (an indispensable resource), a subscription to our weekly Bridge to Home email newsletter, and a membership card with access code to the national PTA's Web site and resources. PTA enrollment forms can be found below or in the front foyer of Bridge School. To help support all that we do at Bridge, the PTA also holds several fundraising initiatives each year. Monies raised by PTA fundraisers go directly to improving the resources available to children and teachers.
