Overview

3 months ago

Our PTA is an association of parents and teachers working together to improve, enrich and augment the educational experience of all students at UBE.

Our General Meetings will be held Quarterly.  (Date and Time TBD)

Student Advocacy

The main goal of the PTA is to look out for the best interests of our children, the students of Upper Blue Elementary.  The PTA acts as an advocate for our student's needs, be they educational, safety-related, political, social, recreational or other.  At this time, the primary advocacy projects of the PTA are listed below.  Others may develop over the course of the year and will be discussed in the PTA and school newsletters.

* Continued support of character & team building programs such as the 4th grade High Trails camp and the 5th-grade class trip.

* Continued support for academic programs, including  Math, Writing and Science materials, and PYP.  Some funding benefits specific grades, while others impact the whole school.

* Classroom and teacher support including supplies, professional development, and appreciation.

 

School and Teacher support
Much of what the PTA does is work to raise the money necessary to provide a variety of broad-based student needs, school equipment and material shortfalls and supplementary teaching tools.  The PTA works closely with the UBE faculty to identify these needs.

 

Community Support / Enrichment
Several of our events serve not only to raise money but to create FUN, FAMILY activities that support the sense of community within our school.  Those events are:

 

Kid's Night Out/ Movie Nights

Restaurant Give Back Nights

Meet & Greets
