Joining the PTA keeps you connected and active in our school. PTA members have access to an online directory of other Benfield PTA parent, enjoy PTA member discounts, and receive exclusive PTA e-mail updates for timely reminders throughout the year. If you join the PTA you are not required to volunteer although if you are interested we would love to have you join our team. All PTA members will receive a 2017-2018 car magnet!
Along with membership, each fall we run a Patron's Drive. Giving to the Patrons’ Drive eliminates the need for students to conduct door-to-door fundraising. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and goes directly to Benfield students! The PTA suggests a donation of $50 per Benfield student. However, every donation is appreciated!
Last year, our Patron's Drive helped to buy...
Chromebook carts- $16,000
Teacher support- $6,000
Educational assemblies for students-$8,000
Clubs and enrichment programs- $6,000
This year we will continue to fund all of these wonderful things and we also have big plans to enhance all outdoor learning space.
Membership is $15.00 per family.
If I join, do I have to?
- Go to meetings?
No. You are welcome to attend our general meetings though.
- Volunteer or spend a lot of time at school?
Nope! Joining the PTA is not the same as volunteering. If you choose to volunteer we would LOVE the help—but volunteering is not required.
