- To encourage parental participation in school events
From your PTL President:
Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year at Belvoir Christian Academy!
While our teachers and staff will ensure that your child receives an excellent education, the parents who volunteer on our Parent Teacher League will work to provide children, parents, and the East Ridge community with fun and exciting events that will positively affect your child's experience here at BCA. Involvement in the PTL is the best way to not only connect with other BCA parents and families, but also to spend more time with you child(ren), through the variety of PTL-sponsored activities throughout the school year.
Please join the PTL and the entire BCA Faculty and Staff for our first event of the 2018-2019 school year:
Thurs., Sept. 13, 7 p.m. - Welcome Back to School Night
During Welcome Back to School Night, you will have the opportunity to meet all your children's teachers, as well as learn more about the PTL and volunteer opportunities. Everyone will gather in the gym first for a brief presentation. Then, as you make your way to your child's classroom, the PTL board will serve dessert and coffee in the cafeteria.
The PTL Board meets once a month to discuss the details of the next upcoming event. Everyone interested in volunteering is welcome to attend! Monthly meeting dates and times will be posted on our website, in the newsletter, and on our Facebook page.
Our next monthly PTL Board meeting is: Tues., Sept. 18 at 7 p.m.
We will meet at the home of PTL President, Sarah Harr (3535 Dell Trail, Chattanooga, TN 37411). The primary focus of this meeting is to discuss the Potluck, Bonfire, and Silent Auction on October 20. If you signed up to volunteer for this event,please try to join us! We plan to wrap up by 8 p.m.
sign up to volunteer
All BCA families are strongly encouraged to volunteer for a minimum of 8 service hours throughout the school year. To simplify the volunteer sign-up process, our PTL is using SignUp Genius to allow families to choose a specific event, how they want to help, and the amount of time they are available to help - all in one place! This information is maintained by the PTL, and volunteers will be contacted within 2 weeks of their event to confirm volunteer assignments and answer questions.
Volunteer hours can be earned by helping at any event listed on SignUp Genius, such as setting up, cleaning up, or helping during an event. Parents who volunteer as homeroom parent helpers may also earn service hours by coordinating or setting up for a class party. Additionally, service hour opportunities will be offered throughout the school year to help with grounds cleanup (mulching, weeding, planting, etc.), bulletin boards, PTL closet organization and other time-sensitive tasks.
The class with the highest percentage of parent volunteer involvement each semester will receive a special privilege - field trip, special event, class party, etc. What a wonderful way to recognize our BCA parents and families for their hard work!
