PTA

PTA Welcome to Barcroft!

Our school is a community where children, teachers, and parents learn and grow together. The PTA works closely with the administration and staff to provide valuable support and enhancements to the elementary school experience for Barcroft students, parents, and staff. We have a wonderful relationship of support and a real sense of family at Barcroft that is not found at all schools. We are truly a neighborhood school.

 
 
We invite you to participate in PTA activities and volunteer your time to make each program a success. Our activities include: Garden Work Days (fall and spring) where staff, parents, and children work together in our Outdoor Learning gardens; annual community events including Chalk-4-Peace in the fall, a Book Exchange/Coffeehouse in the winter and our School Walk for Diabetes in the spring; Staff appreciation week when the PTA gives back to those who give so much to our children; fundraisers to raise money to fund long-distance field trips, the 5th grade trip, Reading is Fundamental, new equipment for the school and gardens, cultural celebrations, after-school enrichment classes and financial support for the staff. And, we just helped raise the funds to build a School Track!

 
We encourage you to participate as a volunteer. In early August all parents will be asked to fill out a volunteer questionnaire and we will enlist a room parent from each homeroom to be a point of contact in getting volunteers for activities. This website includes a calendar of events that will be updated to include the events for the whole school year and a list of committee chairs and PTA board members. In addition to the organized events, parents are welcome to help in the classrooms or in the computer and science labs. You may find that the Barcroft school family becomes your community family, too.

 
In addition to all of the time that is volunteered through the PTA, we also rely on financial contributions to supplement materials, field trips, and much more. The success of our fundraising allows us to support a wide range of activities and resources for the students, staff, and parents. We encourage you to participate in these activities or to contribute funds directly to the PTA. Membership dues also help to support our many activities. Annual membership is $5.00 per person. Checks made payable to the Barcroft PTA may be mailed to or dropped off at the school office located at:
