We invite all of our Beard Elementary parents to join us on Monday morning, August 24th, 7:30am for our annual BooHoo & Yahoo Social on the first day of school.
Come say hello in the cafeteria and enjoy coffee and donuts with like-minded parents who are sad to see the summer end, and yet we’re happy to get our kids back to school at Beard.
Whether it’s your first drop off or your tenth, all Beard parents are welcome!
Hello Beard nation! Your 2015-16 Beard PTA Board is already hard at work, gathering together last week to brainstorm and plan an exciting calendar year ahead. We look forward to an awesome school year with our Beard Buckaroos!

Our 8th Annual
Bob Beard Walk-a-thon
is Friday, October 30th!
The countdown is on for our 8th annual Bob Beard Walk-a-thon. This year’s theme is the Monster Mash Dash.
Our Beard Buckaroos will be walking (or running) to raise money for our school, and increasing their physical fitness along the way.
This will be our ONLY fundraiser this year. Each dollar contributes to our overall fundraising goal of $20,000.
The money raised will fund the following: Field trips and transportation, school dances, Career Day, Discovering Disabilities Day, Bike Rodeo, Field Day, 5th Grade Promotion, WATCH D.O.G.S., end of the year gifts to the school… AND MORE!
Stay tuned for more details on how you can be involved in our 2015 Monster Mash Dash!
We are excited to announce the first Bonus Box Tops opportunity of the school year at one of our favorite stores, Costco!
Look for these participating products, read more about this contest below and start collecting your Box Tops today. To learn more, visit www.btfe.com.
We have an opening for our Volunteer Coordinator position on our PTA Board this upcoming school year.
Our 4th VP Volunteers will be responsible for coordinating volunteers for special events and activities sponsored by the PTA, like Bike Rodeo and Field Day.
If you or someone you know might be ideal for this position, please contact us ASAP.
Thank you in advance for helping us spread the word!
It’s back to school time and we’re excited to see all of our returning Beard Buckaroos and meet our new ones!
Meet the Teacher day is scheduled for Thursday, August 20th from 3:00-4:30pm.
Be sure to stop by the PTA table in the foyer to easily join the PTA and sign up to volunteer for upcoming events during the school year.
We look forward to seeing you!
We want your BoxTops!
And it’s never too early to start collecting them.
Simply print the collection sheet below and tape or glue your BoxTops to the page. For every sheet of 25 UNEXPIRED BoxTops you turn in, you will win a coupon for a FREE Small Bahama Buck’s.
Your Buckaroo will LOVE it!
The deadline to send in your collection sheet is Sept 30th.
Please do not staple BoxTops to the sheet, unless they are Bonus BoxTops. Remember expired BoxTops cannot be turned in for money for our school, and will not count towards contests.
UPDATE: Position filled!
We have an opening on the 2015-2016 Beard PTA Board for our Room Parent Coordinator.
This position works closely with the VP of Volunteers, and most of the work is done in the first month of school while trying to fill PAL and Room Parent roles. After that, it’s mostly just email and occasional phone calls to remind our Beard Room Parents of class parties and spring Barn Dance responsibilities.
This is a great first role for a first time board member, and a quick way to meet other parents at Beard Elementary.
If you or someone you know would be perfect for this fun position, please contact us.
