BES PTA raises money each year to support educational opportunities for every child at our school. Please support your student by participating in the fundraisers listed below.
The Beaver Boogie is Branchville PTA’s only annual fundraiser. This full school event occurs in mid to late September during the after school hours from 3:25-5:00pm. Kids run or walk around the Lower Field as many times as they can in 30 minutes. They are cheered on by their teachers, Mr. Margolus, the parent volunteers and spectators who line the field. If they are lucky, they will catch the Beaver – our fun mascot who always comes out for this great event! While half of the grades are walking/running, the other half are participating in our Fitness Fair and are rotating through healthy entertainment stations. All students are encouraged to participate and raise funds. There are great incentive prizes given every year based on individual fundraising tallies. For more information, contact Kari Lombardo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our 2016 Spring Gala and Auction will be held in March 2017. This adult-only event occurs every other year. For the last several years, the event has been held at Silver Spring Country Club. An active parent committee works on everything from the auction items, raffle prizes, décor and entertainment to ensure a good time for all. The committee will begin meeting in September. If you would like to join the committee, please email at email@example.com.
The following campaigns are so simple and really bring in a lot of money for Branchville PTA. Please consider supporting each of them.
Box Tops for Education
Collect "box tops" on common grocery items and return them to your child's teacher in the Spring and Fall to earn big money for BES! We'll announce deadlines to turn them in for Fall and Spring via the weekly blast email. We ask that you count the Box Tops before you turn them in groups of 50 and label your baggie of Box Tops with the following info: # of Box Tops you are submitting, your child's teacher name, your child's grade. For more information click here or contact Gigi Weiss.
The BES PTA works with many local retailers including Oak + Almond, The Little Pub, Piccolo Pizza, Toozy Patza Pizza, Squash’s Office Supply, SandWedge Deli & Catering, Keough’s Paint & Hardware, Terra Sole, Dimitri’s Diner, Ridgefield Pet, Adam Broderick Salon & Spa and Tusk & Cup. When you order a gift certificate through Beaver Bucks, the retailer will donate between 10-25% back to BES PTA! This is a win-win. We help you, you help local businesses, and local businesses invest in our kids’ education. Show your appreciation for these local businesses and your love for our school by supporting Beaver Bucks. A flyer will come out several times a year or you can order online when program is active.
