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.
