Dear Big Ridge Elementary Families,

Big Ridge Elementary PTA would like to welcome you to Big Ridge Elementary! On behalf of the board, I invite you to join our PTA. Big Ridge Elementary PTA is made up of folks just like you: parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and community members who want to pitch in to make sure our school offers the best educational experience possible. This summer our PTA board identified several main goals for the 2020-2021 school year:
1. To assist the school in providing a safe and healthy environment for students to thrive during the 2020-2021 school year
2: To provide engagement opportunities for students and families to participate in both in person and virtually
3. To work towards the goal of replacing the school’s playground equipment to provide for a more inclusive recess experience
4. To provide a part time educational assistant to assist teachers in meeting the educational needs of the students
5. To communicate effectively with the Big Ridge Community
The plans within these goals are many, so I hope you will participate often in our PTA events and initiatives. Let PTA help you find the best way to participate.

Give your time: For the present moment, PTA volunteer opportunities are a little different than in years past. Focusing on ways to help the school from the home, there are plenty of ways that you can assist. Our volunteer coordinator has a fit for you!

Fundraising: Big Ridge Elementary PTA is a 501(c) organization. Events are held to raise funds throughout the year that allow us to support Big Ridge Elementary School where public funding falls short. Big Ridge Elementary PTA never asks students to go door to door selling items to raise funds. Instead one of our biggest fundraisers during the Fall semester is our Benefactor Campaign, where families and friends can donate funds directly into improving the educational experience at Big Ridge Elementary School. Look for information regarding this campaign as well as other fundraising events on the PTA Facebook page at

Give your support: Big Ridge Elementary PTA supports enriching the lives of the students and families at Big Ridge. Events such as the Reflections Art Contest and Family STEAM Night are just some of the initiatives that PTA coordinates to improve the educational experience at Big Ridge Elementary. We invite you to support your student in participating in these initiatives.
