Vision & mission
The BFIS Parent and Teacher Association, PTA, is an organization run mostly by parents, with generous inputs and assistance from the school’s leadership, faculty, and students.
The PTA vision is to create an interconnected community that fosters joy, excellence, life-long learning, service, and spirit community at BFIS.
The PTA’s goals are to:
- Enrich the education experience for our students
- Create a welcoming environment for all families
- Support BFIS staff
Join the PTA
Connecting with the PTA is a rewarding way to enhance your student’s experience at BFIS, get to know the teachers and staff as well as other families outside your student’s grade and algo to have a lot of fun! There are many ways to get involved with varying levels of commitment – there is something for everyone and all are welcome!
Different ways to get involved
The PTA coordinates the BFIS Room Parents. A room parent (also known as a class parent) facilitates communication between parents and the teacher, school administration and/or parent-teacher association (PTA) and supports the teacher in needs that may arise. Room Parents help coordinate class parties, special events, parent volunteers in the classroom, and maintain a positive attitude among the parents in the classroom. One of their main responsibilities is to communicate with the classroom parents and keep them informed.
Room Parents meet with Principals at least once a month to tackle those issues of main concern for the classroom.
Setting up, working during an event or helping to clean up afterwards, event volunteers are the ones that make it all happen. This is the easiest way to get involved as there is no ongoing commitment. Just let the PTA now you are interested, and before events they will contact you to find a role that suits your availability.
If you are looking to really have an impact within the school, get to know teachers and staff and meet other like-minded parents, this is the role for you! You can get involved with organizing events, support charitable work with the Impact Committee, or support parents and staff through the Communications Committee.
It is important to us that new families feel a part of our community as soon as possible, providing a quick and easy transition for students and parents. The PTA supports new students and families and helping them integrate into the school community by organizing different events and programs available to them.
