Join the PTA

Join the PTA today for only $10 and be part of your child’s success. PTA meetings are the third Thursday of every month in the auditorium; child care is free. Meetings begin at 6:30PM.

The Birney PTA’s approach is twofold.

  • First, build community by providing opportunities for the Birney community to interact outside the structure of the normal school day. This includes playground play dates, bedtime stories, family movie nights at Birney, and our annual Passport to Adventure Festival.
  • Second, raise funds for enrichment activities like field trips, educational assemblies, teacher appreciation, the end-of-year limo ride for perfect attendance, glow sticks for Halloween and much more. Ongoing fundraising programs include Amazon affiliate links, Box Tops and Coke Rewards.

Some programs we offer combine both approaches. Meet your child’s friends’ parents for dinner on a Birney Family Dinner Night, hand in your Birney flyer, and Birney gets money back while you learn more about your child’s classmates. Buy a Birney T-shirt on Family Friday to show your Birney pride while giving back to the school.

If you like volunteering and don’t like asking people for money, the PTA is the place for you. If you love fundraising, please join our sister organization, Friends of Alice Birney Elementary. (Many people do both, so feel free to do both as well!)
