How can I get involved?
Butterfield Canyon has a strong PTA program whose purpose is to provide our students with opportunities and experiences that wouldn't be available without kind and capable volunteer efforts. If you would like to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reflections - National PTA Reflections is America’s oldest and largest arts education program of its kind. The program was developed in 1969 by Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork.
Red Ribbon Week – Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. At BCE we observe this week over a track change, students receive red bracelets, have a prevention awareness assembly and participate in activities throughout the week.
Staff Appreciation – Since 1984, National PTA has designated the first week in May as a time for communities nationwide to honor teachers for being a guiding force in helping children develop into healthy, happy and successful adults. We love participating in this week to show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate everything they do for our students.
Book Fairs – At every SEP conference there is a Book Fair hosted in the library. This is coordinated by a member of the PTA board and staffed by volunteers from the school. At BCE we are happy to work with Scholastic Books.
Learning Links –The classroom volunteer program our school uses is called Learning Links. Each classroom has a Learning Links Representative who works one- on- one with the teacher to help accommodate the classroom needs. The classroom representative helps coordinate classroom needs such as, parent volunteers, classroom celebrations, and is a vital part of parent/teacher communication.
Birthday Celebrations - The PTA at BCE gives a gift to each student during their birthday month.
Field Day - PTA plans Field Day during the last week of the school year. The students look forward to this every year when they get to go out on the field with their class and participate in lots of different activities.
Box Tops - The PTA collects and organizes Box Tops to benefit your student's classrooms. Every little bit counts and can really add up.
Color Obstacle Course Fundraiser - The PTA organizes a fund raiser each year to cover their annual budget. We will be doing a Color Obstacle Course and a Silent Auction. Students collect a flat donation from their relatives to support the wonderful PTA programs. This is always a fun event for the whole family to run around the track, eat treats, bid on the silent auction, and dance to the DJ's beat.
