COVID-19 & BCCPTA
Due to the Corona Virus, BCCPTA has been operating within the guidelines of the social distancing status quo. As a result, our meetings have, and will continue to be conducted both as teleconferences as well as video conferences through ZOOM, until the guidelines are changed. As we continue to advocate for our children, we need the support of all our parents and teachers, so please check this website often.
PLEASE continue to operate with WISDOM in order to protect your families and loved ones during this time. Let us all demonstrate the spirit of love to one another.
BCCPTA would like to extend our DEEPEST condolences to the family of Renee Grutman.
We mourn with you...

Our National PTA's Origins
For more than 100 years, National Parent Teacher Association (National PTA®) has worked toward bettering the lives of every child in education, health and safety. Founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst, National PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.
Today’s PTA is a network of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools.
