Thanks to everyone who helped with the Fall Fundraiser, especially our chair, Cari Pyka! :)
Also, thanks to our families for supporting Bailey with Fall Fundraiser purchases!
Remember, if you would rather give a direct donation to the Bailey PTA, you can do that in addition to or in lieu of fundraising. Please note "donation" in the memo of the check (check payable to Bailey PTA) and drop it off in the mail office.
Spring Fundraiser & Wellness Program
The Bailey PTA has decided to add an Apex Fun Run as part of our fundraising efforts for the 2016-2017 school year.
Apex provides a two week curriculum where "coaches" come to classrooms during the school day to encourage students and promote wellness and fitness. The two week program culminates in a Fun Run for all students on Friday, April 7.
Families will be able to take pledges for runners, including the option of online pledges which makes it easy for family and friends from out of town to help participate and encourage your runner/runners! We think this sounds like a fun option for our school and we're excited to give it a try! Our Phy-Ed team is excited about the new idea, too! We'll send out more information closer to the date!
Want to be part of our Bailey PTA email group? We'll email you re: things going on with the PTA, opportunities to help, etc.
We won't share your email with anyone else and emails will be sent "BCC" so others don't see your email address.
Name and email is all we need - this survey will take you less than one minute!

Bytes for Bailey Spending from Last Year
During our final PTA meeting of the 2015-2016 year, members in attendance approved the purchase of a chrome book lab (32 chrome books), 2 smart board and 1 projector (for classrooms that don't have that equipment in them). We will be using the approximate $900 raised in Community Events from last year (Wendy's Nights, Buffalo Wild Wings Days, etc) in addition to carry-over money from last school year to pay for these expenses. These are exciting additions to the Bailey learning community and we did it with strong fundraising! Thanks everyone! Teachers and students alike will benefit!
