Become a Member of the PTA

Cool fun...
at our
Family Movie Nights.

Stay cool...
join us for our
Family Dinner Nights.

Be Cool...
at our annual
Passport to Adventure.

None of these activities would be achievable without the support and efforts of Birney PTA. Therefore, as the new school year begins, we need your help in making this year the coolest in the eyes of the children who attend Birney.

With today’s budget crisis and depressed economy we need to show our support more than ever for our children and their school.

We encourage you, your spouse, children and extended family members to become PTA members. Membership dues are $5 per person ($25 for business members). This amount only covers what is required by the 9th district PTA, so any additional financial support you can provide is ALWAYS appreciated. All funds raised throughout the year by the PTA help fund many of the programs and assemblies that your children enjoy.

You will receive membership forms in this weeks BUZZ or you can download it here. Fill it out, include your check and drop it in the PTA box or give it to your child's teacher.

The PTA meetings will be the second Monday of each month at 6 pm in the auditorium. Child care will be provided. This is a great way to get involved in your child's school, as well as, meet new parents and have some fun.

Click here to download the membership form. (There are both Spanish and English versions included in the pdf) Parents, grand-parents, neighbors and friends can all be a member. It all benefits our kids in the end.

Thanks so much for supporting the PTA.
