Baldwin PTA works hard to raise funds to supplement school resources, support teachers and staff, and provide engaging programming for our school community.   We can do it without our Bobcat CommYOUnity! Check out the options below!

Fundraising Volunteers

Baldwin PTA does a lot more than fundraising, but without fundraising, we wouldn't be able to support our teachers and staff or provide fun, family programming.  We are looking for volunteers to coordinate two of our fundraising committees.  Both opportunities can be done as a team easily done from home - no need to come to the school.

  • Spirit Nights:  The Fall semester events have been scheduled; volunteers would coordinate the Spring semester.
  • HEB Gift Card Program: Card Distribution Chair (1) and distribution helpers (1-2)
Yearbook Coordinator

Are you a completionist?  Is it important you have a yearbook for every year your child has been at Baldwin?  Not crazy about last year's yearbook?  Then we have an opportunity for you!  We need a volunteer (or two), to coordinate the 2021-2022 Baldwin Yearbook.  This is a great project for friends to work on together.  If we do not have a volunteer(s), we will not be able to offer a yearbook for the 2021-2022 school year.  

Interested in volunteering? Email us!

Welcome Back Baldwin Bobcat Families! We hope you had a fun, happy, and healthy summer. We are excited to begin this new school year and look forward to giving you CATCH updates, or any healthy eating or active movement updates in the Roar newsletter. Have a great start to this new school year!
