sign up to volunteer
From your PTL President, Sarah Harr:
I want to say THANK YOU to all of the teachers, students, parents, families, PTL board members and volunteers who helped make our annual Fall Festival such a tremendous success! We were blessed to have a record crowd (300+ people) and gorgeous weather for this special event. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pumpkin decorating, face painting, cookie decorating, fall crafts, outdoor sports and roasting marshmallows over the fire pits. Teachers and families enjoyed the quality vendors, gorgeous class baskets, delicious food (we will be sure to have more next year!), and lots of time for fun and fellowship - and we raised $845 to purchase new playground equipment for the CCC!
If you have any suggestions for next year's Fall Festival, or if you would like to help with the planning, please don't hesitate to email me by clicking here. I would be thrilled to receive any advice or assistance, particularly from those of you who have been a part of the BCA community over a long period of time. I would also love to learn about your past experiences with the East Ridge Christmas Parade float, which is coming up on Sat., Nov. 17. Be sure to sign up to work on or ride on the float.
Thank you all for your involvement, your support and your commitment to BCA!
All BCA families are strongly encouraged to volunteer for a minimum of 8 service hours throughout the school year. To simplify the volunteer sign-up process, our PTL is using SignUp Genius to allow families to choose a specific event, how they want to help, and the amount of time they are available to help - all in one place! This information is maintained by the PTL, and volunteers will be contacted within 2 weeks of their event to confirm volunteer assignments and answer questions.
Volunteer hours can be earned by helping at any event listed on SignUp Genius, such as setting up, cleaning up, or helping during an event. Parents who volunteer as homeroom parent helpers may also earn service hours by coordinating or setting up for a class party. Additionally, service hour opportunities will be offered throughout the school year to help with grounds cleanup (mulching, weeding, planting, etc.), bulletin boards, PTL closet organization and other time-sensitive tasks.
The class with the highest percentage of parent volunteer involvement each semester will receive a special privilege - field trip, special event, class party, etc. What a wonderful way to recognize our BCA parents and families for their hard work!
PTL Mission Statement:
The Belvoir Christian Academy PTL works for your child by maintaining close working relationships between parents, teachers, staff, and all BCA students, to enhance the Christian educational experience by providing equipment, services, and fellowship events to build school spirit and relationships within the BCA family.
The purpose of the PTL is to encourage and cultivate high standards of Christian education; to promote open communication and good will among parents, teachers, administration, school board, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, and First Lutheran Church; and to encourage parental participation in school events.
While our teachers and staff will ensure that your child receives an excellent education, the parents who volunteer on our Parent Teacher League will work to provide children, parents, and the East Ridge community with fun and exciting events that will positively affect your child's experience at BCA. Involvement in the PTL is the best way to not only connect with other BCA parents and families, but also to spend more time with your child(ren), through the variety of PTL-sponsored activities offered throughout the school year.
