Stay Informed

The PTA is committed to reaching parents, families, and the community in as many ways as possible, while achieving our goal of fiscal and environmental responsibility. We have gone green, and are largely paperless.

Bear Posts

The PTA will post announcements on our Home page on a weekly basis throughout the school year, and on an as-needed basis during the summer vacation. Subscribe to receive these posts as E-mail using the form above. Posts may include information on school and PTA-related activities and events, sign-up sheets, reminders for important dates, emergency closings, or educational topics.

School Community Communication

The school directly communicates via email every Friday with a Community Communication from Dr. Smith. BMES teachers send weekly newsletters on Fridays. The PTA appreciates that our activities are highlighted in school communications! 


Our Facebook page links our parents to pertinent information related to PTA business, school affairs, and educational topics. Information on Facebook is relevant either to everyone in the school community, or to a general segment of it. Friend us on Facebook.
