Carl Ben Eielson PTA

Thanks for visiting the Carl Ben Eielson Parent Teacher Association (CBE PTA) website!

Every PTA is different. Every year is different. But why we come together is the same...because we love our kids, and we want to make sure their middle school experience is the best it can be! As a middle school PTA, we will be striving to make sure our meetings include topics that are of interest to parents of middle schoolers. Here are a few ideas:

    • Learn about internet and social media safety and healthy practices for your middle schooler
    • Find out more about the standardized testing that your middle schooler will be taking
    • Get tips about planning for success in high school
    • Hear from CBEs talented teachers about topics that are their specialties

On our website you can find notes from previous meetings, a list of upcoming events, and keep an eye out for messages with opportunities to volunteer. Thanks for your interest in helping to make Carl Ben Eielson Middle School a place where every child and every family feels like they belong. Feel free to send us a note if you have ideas you want to share:
