Bergens Annual Giving Campaign


Dear Bergen Families,

Annually, the Bergen PTA reaches out to the Bergen Families for financial support through three fundraising events.  The Buffalo Stampede (student FUNdraiser), The Bergen Annual Giving (BAG) campaign (support from gracious families who would like to just write a check) and the Auction Event (for parents who like to party for a purpose).

WHY IS SUPPORT FOR THE PTA SO IMPORTANT?

95% of our budgeted money from the State goes to pay for the amazing teaching staff.  Therefore, without PTA funds our kids would not have the necessary annual upgrades to technology required, classroom support/teacher materials, and access to enhancement items in PE and Music. And a portion of the PTA funds raised last year also paid for ongoing staff development and training, the Greenhouse at Valley, the bike path at the preschool, and the Ukulele Tree for the music departments… just to name a few!  The PTA also pays for the all the incredible kid events (Ice Cream Social, Movie Night, Fun Run, 5th Grade Spaghetti Dinner) hosted throughout the year and SO much more!

WHAT ARE WE RAISING FUNDS FOR THIS YEAR?

·         New carpet in the classrooms at Bergen Meadow (the current carpets are at least 20 years old and in some rooms it is the ORIGINAL carpet from when the school was built … yikes)

·         Add Water filtration stations to existing water fountains so our kids can fill up their water bottles with clean, filtered water

·         Update the books in the book rooms at both schools

·         Security upgrades for both schools

·         One set (30) heart rate monitors for the PE department

·         New playground for Bergen Valley (the current one is 20 years old… it’s time for an update)

·         Smaller Greenhouse for Bergen Meadow

Please consider contributing to this year’s BAG Campaign.  Any donation great or small is so appreciated and needed so that we insure our schools are as safe and up to date as possible for our children. Bergen PTA is a designated 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, and your donation is tax deductible to extent of the law.
