    PTA News for the 2020-2021 School Year

    Dear BCS Parents and Guardians,

     We hope you are having a good summer despite the unusual circumstances! Welcome to our new families and welcome back to our returning families. We are excited for the school year and are honored to be serving as Co-Chairs of the Birmingham Covington School (BCS) Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

    ARE YOU READY?? In this world of new norms, our teachers and students will need the PTA now more than ever before. We are heading into the new school year with loads of uncertainty -

    • Uncertain what the teachers will need (as they, too, are still exploring what resources, materials, supplies will be needed for their students)
    • Uncertain of future school funding both from the State and Federal governments, and
    • Uncertain of how the PTA will be funded given that our annual spring Blast fundraiser is in jeopardy.

    Together, we can fund the resources and materials that our students need to excel and support the events that build school identity and community! Please click on the link below and update your family information and DONATE TODAY.

       Go to: bcspta.membershiptoolkit.com

     Without financial donations, BCS would not be able to provide the incredible educational programs and hands-on learning that sets BCS apart from other schools in this district. Since the BCS PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your donation to this campaign is completely tax deductible. You may want to find out if your employer offers a matching program. We are happy to fill out any paperwork that your employer requires to facilitate the transaction.

    We want everyone to understand the awesome things that PTA fund will be funding this 2020-2021 school year! Here are some examples of your direct donation dollars at work in this year:

    • Science Olympiad and Robotics
    • 3/4 Scholastic News Program, Spelling City, Technology Resources
    • 5/6 Kids Discover Online, Junior Scholastic, NoRedInk
    • 7/8 Junior Scholastics, Engage Supplies
    • Engineering Technology- K’nex Kits (Home Kits) and Lego Supplies Kits (Home Kits)
    • STEM/STEAM supplies
    • Birbery/ Battle of the Books Reading Programs and New eBooks
    • Engage and Thinkering Studio

    Please stop by the PTA table at the Welcome Back Days to meet us! BCS really is a great place to be!

    Kind regards from you new PTA C0-Chairs,

    Donna Kramer (dkramer216@yahoo.com), Kathleen Meyers (kathleen.meyers@gmail.com), and Torri Calver (torri.calver@yahoo.com)
