WHAT DO WE DO?

We Volunteer to provide the additional support that allows special events and trips to happen that bring parents and teachers together. 

We Raise Money to support enrichment opportunities for students and IB training for teachers which are not covered by the school’s budget. Click Here to Donate. Any person wishing to make a contribution to the PTA may do so at any time.  Checks are to be made out to BSGEPTA.   In the past parents’ contributions have been used for scholarships for SAT prep classes, student activities and gifts to support the teaching staff.

We Advocate for our children and the school so that we can speak in one strong voice on behalf of our children’s needs.

WHEN & WHERE DO WE MEET?

We typically meet at 6:30 pm the second Tuesday of every month in the school cafeteria. Each meeting includes: time to get to know other parents, a special topic and/or guest, Q&A with Principal Johnson.

BSGE PTA Links

The BSGE PTA is a 501(c)3 charity, so 1) all donations are tax deductible, and 2) many companies will match charitable donations from their employees, so PLEASE check with the human resources department at your company.  Matching is an easy way to double the impact of your contribution.  Many thanks to all the parents who have already done so!!!!


Remember, we have two ways to give.  You can donate online at:

Or by check, made out to the BSGE PTA, either via backpack or directly in the mail addressed to the BSGE PTA.Some of our parents pay in monthly installments by adding BSGE PTA as a payee on their online banking account.  Thank you for helping our students and school!

Amazon Smile
Did you know shopping through Amazon Smile is the same as shopping through the regular Amazon site, but BSGE PTA gets a small donation?  Have you thought about signing up for Amazon Smile and choosing the Baccalaureate School for Global Education PTA as your charity, but just can’t get around to it???  Or just can’t quite get the spelling of Baccalaureate right??
 
Amazon Smile is trying to make it easier for us. Just click here:
 
 
or here
 
amazonsmile
 
and you will go directly to the Amazon Smile page that asks if you wish to support the Baccalaureate School for Global Education PTA.  It’s that easy!!!  Then, every time you make your Amazon purchases through Amazon Smile, 0.5% of the purchase is donated to the BSGE PTA.
 
Tell your family and friends!!!
 
Please remember to shop via www.smile.amazon.com after you select us as your charity.  If you shop via Amazon, we won’t get a donation.  The sites are identical, so there is no reason not to choose Amazon Smile.
