What We Do
Have you ever wondered what your PTA does for you, your student, and our school? Here are a few of the things the PTA funds, organizes, or provides volunteer assistance for:
Ryan Elementary PTA covers the cost of ALL student field trips (Ryan Elementary is one of only a few schools in BVSD that does not require parents to pay for their child's field trips).
The PTA provides funding for classroom supplies and equipment to support instruction.
The PTA also contributes to the cost of after-school clubs.
Ryan Elementary PTA identifies volunteer opportunities and recruits volunteers to support activities and instruction (examples: room parents, teacher meals for parent teacher conferences, movie night, open house events, kindergarten playdates, etc.)
Ryan Elementary PTA organizes classroom and school-wide activities in order to build a sense of community and increase resources for the school.
The benefits of family-school-community partnerships are many: higher teacher morale, more parent involvement, and greater student success are only a few.
