On behalf of the Bourbonnais PTA, it is our pleasure to welcome you to our community and the 2016-2017 school year. We are looking forward to a great year filled with events, community building activities and most importantly supporting our children and teachers so that they can continue to achieve excellence in education!

The primary way for you to make this a great year for your family is to join the PTA. This is your chance to become a member of an organization that funds many of the day to day opportunities you see happening throughout our five schools. When you join the PTA you are NOT signing up to attend our monthly meetings, or even help at all. You are able to be involved as little or as much as you please finding just the right balance for you and your family.

The next best way to make this a great year is to volunteer.  It has been proven that a child whose parent(s) are involved in his/her education is a more successful student.  By joining the PTA and getting involved, there is no better way to get connected. Know what's happening at LeVasseur, Shepard, Shabbona, Liberty and BUGC, meet other parents, and share ideas.

It's been said that the main reason people do not join the PTA is because they are not asked....we are asking.....and also asking you to ask your friends. Join us for just $6 per family for the year and make this the best year yet for you and your child!

Our next meeting will be held Tuesday, September 6th and the Central Office from 6:30-7:30. Come hear about our first ever Walk A Thon. It's sure to be a great family event!!  Hope to see you there!

Your PTA Board,

Devan Gonzalez--President

Paula Vogt--Secretary

Jessica Gerretse--Treasurer
