Art Room Volunteers and SupportHelp coordinate volunteers for the art room and special art events. 


BES Spring Gala: Help plan BES’ adults-only party night that happens only every-other year! This is a super fun event, but also a very important fundraiser for us, so we need as many hands as possible! 

Beaver Boogie:  Be part of planning the only child-driven school fundraiser or volunteer to help during the event, which will be held after school on a Friday in October.  This is a beloved Branchville tradition and it is always in need of hands to help plan and execute! 


Beaver Bucks: Be on the committee who organizes gift cards options and communicates to BES families the purchase options, while also supporting local businesses! 


Book Fair: Volunteer to help plan and run the Scholastic Book Fair, held in October. 


Box Tops: Be the coordinator for box tops submissions.  This is a great behind the scenes opportunity for parents who work during the day and can’t volunteer as much in school. 


Branchville Writes: Be the PTA contact for helping plan the Bi- Annual writing event (Fall and Spring)


Compassion and Diversity Committee: Be part of the committee that looks to make BES the most inclusive, compassionate school it can be.  This committee also contains a few sub-committees who plan specific events and projects throughout the year, and new voices are always welcome!


Concert Thank-you: Plan teacher gifts for 4th and 5th grade winter and spring concerts. 


Field Day: Be on the committee who plans the Field Day which occurs at the end of the year.


Garden: Volunteer to organize planting and maintaining the school gardens - both the curbside beds and the edible garden through the school year and summer. 


Guest Author: Help the librarian select and plan for annual guest author visit.
