SUBJECT: September Edition

Sunday, September 12, 2021

With the challenges of the last year and a half, our fundraising ability has been limited. We have been unable to host our Fall Carnival and Spring BASH for two years in a row. These are two of our biggest fundraisers, so we need your help now more than ever. Please help us raise funds for Baldwin Elementary this month. 100% of your donation goes directly to our school needs and support activities like curriculum support, fun PTA programming, staff appreciation events, teacher reimbursements, technology, and enrichment programs.  No buying or selling - simply donate money to support our amazing school!

Do you, or someone you know, own a local business?  Do you work for a company that would like advertising sent to over 650 families? If so, we've been looking for you!  

We are always looking for ways to strengthen our community partnerships and develop economic and social relationships.  We offer sponsorship levels for every business' budget.

Parent Meeting: September 14th, 6:30-7:30 pm

After a pandemic hiatus, we’re back and would love to connect with you. The Dyslexia Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit parent community formed to share ideas, resources, and tools to help us as we support our children. We schedule speakers and workshops throughout the year, but our Tuesday, September 14th meeting will focus on bringing us back together, discuss where our community is these days as well as Dyslexia Awareness Month. All are welcome!

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't do it without our Bobcat CommYOUnity! Check out the options below!

Family Fun Nights

Our VPs of Programs are working hard to organize virtual and in-person Family Fun Nights programming throughout the year.  They could use your help to organize and promote these events. Helping with a Family Fun Night is a great one-and-done volunteer opportunity!

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)
