BES PTA Membership

Joining the PTA is easy– 5 minutes of your time will get it done! Our annual family PTA memberships are $50; dues are waived for teachers and staff during the 2020/2021 school year.

All PTA members receive an indispensable PTA school directory and access to the directory app (published in November).

  • Provides three to four cultural arts and character education assemblies every school year- Funds the Artist-in-Residence program;
  • Supports teacher training and provides funds to teachers for classroom supplies;
  • Sponsors Math Day, Science Fair, Drama Club, and Variety Show;
  • Organizes many community service projects;
  • Finances and organizes community-building social events such as the Back to School Picnic, the Parent Auction, International Night, and our spring carnival, Mayfair;
  • Keeps you connected with PTA News and online communications tools;
  • Advocates for your children’s education before MCPS, the Board of Education, the County Council and the Maryland State Legislature;
