Easy Ways to Help BBE PTA Raise Money... 


One of the functions of the BBE PTA is to enhance and support the school and all its students by providing the funding for items not covered by district and state budgets. Our BBE PTA has many fundraising opportunities for you to help our school raise money.

You can also help raise money for Bear Branch Elementary by attending as many Spirit Nights as possible - donating money - shopping at Santa's Workshop - sending in supplies - participating in Fall Fest!

So where has the money gone?

Over the past few years, the BBE community has enriched the lives and learning of our children in many ways, some of which include:


  • New playgrounds for all students
  • iPads, iPad cases, iPad docking/charging stations
  • Recess carts and supplies
  • White boards
  • Bike Rodeo
  • Red Ribbon Assembly
  • Field Trips
  • EarlyAct FirstKnight


Your support of the fundraising efforts at BBE are appreciated! We look forward to another great year of helping our school to be the best it can be!
