All about the PTA

Welcome to the 2022-2023 BGS PTA webpage!

Broken Ground School PTA is a member of National PTA- a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit association that prides itself on being a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.

***Check out our frequently asked questions for information on the BGS PTA.***

What does the BGS PTA do? The PTA provides fundraising opportunities that benefit all students at Broken Ground school. Funds raised support field trips and other school events. PTA members and volunteers provide their time to support activities such as the book fair, popcorn Fridays and Harvest Fest. Without PTA volunteers, and the support of BGS staff, these activities would not be possible.

Who can be a part of the PTA?

All parents/guardians/adults supporting BGS students be a part of the PTA. The BGS PTA is currently looking for board members and volunteers!

How can I help the BGS PTA?

Volunteer! Whether you can drop in for a meeting or give an hour volunteering at an event, every little bit helps the students and staff at BGS. If you are interested, have questions or suggestions please attend a meeting or email the board at .

When does the BGS PTA meet?

The first Tuesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the Library/Media Center at Broken Ground School.
