Dear Families,

The Bronxville School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is an integral part of the Bronxville Community and sponsors many of the daily and after school activities that occur on campus.

The mission of the PTA is to promote children's educational success, health, and well being through strong parent, family and community involvement. The PTA is the umbrella organization that coordinates and funds the Elementary, Middle, and High School Councils and the Athletic Council. In addition, the PTA also supports the Arts events, Bronxville After School Clubs (BASC), and B*Well speakers and programs.  YOUR annual membership dollars support important programs throughout the school!

In addition to our on-going programs, successful fundraising through our Memorial Day events and benefits over the past several years has enabled the PTA to support key facility enhancements designated as priorities by the Administration. The PTA’s most recent effort, The Next Chapter, was a sold-out fundraiser in support of the renovation of the Middle and High School library project and hosted over 500 parents to a gala evening of dinner, dancing and live & silent auctions. The PTA gave a $712,000 pledge in support of this renovation. The PTA has previously made an $875,000 donation in support of the new Auditorium and the Middle School Science Labs.

While the fundraising does cover some of the annual budget, it is your annual PTA membership dues that help fund 40% of the PTA’s annual budget, which includes the following programs:
  • Elementary School (ES) – New Families Reception; Character Counts; Field Days; Staff &Teacher Recognition Events; Spring Family Carnival; Green Committee; Fifth Grade Moving Up Ceremony.  The PTA also runs the After School Club (BASC) Program, The ES Play and the Chess Club.
  • Middle School (MS) - Teen Centers; Community Service Activities; Field Day; Graduation Ceremonies; After Ninth Club Program.
  • High School (HS) - Baccalaureate & Graduation Ceremonies; Academic Award Luncheons; Yearbook; Activities before Prom; Senior Week; Art Exhibits & Drama Support.
  • Athletic Council – Homecoming Events, Community Service Projects.
  • B*Well - The Health &Wellness committee sponsors programs that address health and educational topics that are important to Elementary, Middle & High School parents, students & teachers.
Thank you again to our members and volunteers for your generous support and enthusiastic participation of the PTA!
On behalf of the PTA Board, Councils and Committees,
