Have you ever wondered what your PTA does for you, your student, and our school?

The PTA is made up of more than 5 million parents and other concerned adults devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement in schools. The PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that prides itself on being a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.

The BBE PTA is part of both the National PTA and the Texas PTA. We are an all-volunteer service organization that unites home, school, and community on the behalf of children. The PTA at BBE is made up of many committees in which parent members coordinate various family events, school assemblies, programs, and events throughout the school year. The BBE PTA is open to all volunteers and welcomes and encourages all of our families to participate. There are many ways to help out
