There are many different ways B.E. families can support their students!
We encourage all B.E. families to join and pay the PTA membership every year. Joining the PTA allows us to have a larger and stronger voice when it comes to advocating for our students! The PTA membership fee also pays for community building activities for all students. Log into your AtoZ account and access the store to purchase your PTA membership.
Donate to the B.E. Student Fund. The Student Fund is used to enrich the curriculum at B.E. Every year, the PTA spends on average $160/student to provide grade specific cultural arts residencies, fund the Math Olympiad, host STEM day/night, provide additional teacher training/support, buy classroom equipment, add books to the library and more! Log into AtoZconnect and access the store to donate to the fund.
