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.
