The 15th Annual Beaver Boogie is happening after school Friday, October 13, 2023! This is Branchville’s only child-led fundraiser and is also our most popular event. We have a longstanding 99% participation rate so you don’t want to miss it! The Beaver Boogie is a fun-run held after school and is the fun celebratory event that concludes the fundraising efforts. Below you will find a flyer that explains in great detail everything you could ever want to know. That flyer should also be coming home in your child’s backpack today so keep an eye out! We thank you in advance for your prompt registration for this event. 


REGISTER: Please click this link to register your child for this event. You will also need to register for the PTA if you haven’t yet. Registration is required even if you are not attending the event because we must account for every child’s after-school plans that day. 


DONATIONS: Please click on this link to register your child in Raise Craze. Each year you create a new account for Raise Craze even if you’ve signed up before. This is the fundraising platform we use. We do not collect any money for this event through our PTA website. Detailed directions are in the attached flyer. 


FLYER: Click this link to read our All You Need to Know Flyer to learn more about what the Beaver Boogie is and how it all works.

Once you have your teacher assignment(s), please use this link to update your family information, fill out the volunteer code of conduct, and input your teacher information for the directory. Once you have completed the family information form, you will be able to purchase a membership and pay class dues. Members have access to the school directory and receive our weekly newsletter with event reminders and special announcements. 


Note: We received feedback last year from many parents and decided to include the option of collecting class dues during your PTA registration. In prior years, the class dues were collected in October via the room parents, but we hope to create a more seamless process by collecting during registration. The funds cover the cost of parties throughout the year, such as food and crafts. If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact us at


We hope you had a wonderful summer and hope to see you all on Friday at the Back to School Social!
