The Bill Roberts Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is our school’s local chapter of the Colorado PTA, a grassroots, non-profit, volunteer organization that strives to facilitate opportunities for parents to be engaged in their children’s school. The PTA is run by parent volunteers who donate their time and skills to ensure that Bill Roberts students receive an excellent education.
Our PTA encourages parents to become engaged in the school by providing opportunities to get involved and build community, communicating about upcoming events and news, and fundraising to supplement the funds Bill Roberts receives from Denver Public Schools.
Some ways you can be involved in the PTA include:
- Attend the monthly PTA meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm – childcare is provided
- Sign up to volunteer for a committee or event – there are many opportunities to volunteer both at home and at school for a wide range of time commitments. Current volunteer opportunities are listed at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084faca62faa8-volunteer1
- Sign up to receive the PTA weekly email newsletter – http://billroberts.dpsk12.org/thursday-notes/
- Join the PTA by signing up at https://brs.ejoinme.org/MyPages/MembershipPage/tabid/233915/Default.aspx
Yearly dues are $15 for an individual membership and $25 for a family membership. Membership dues pay for operating costs like insurance and supplies and ensures that all money from our fundraising efforts go directly to the school.
We are proud that our PTA supports our school’s community culture by organizing Book It Bobcats, Carnival, the 100 Mile Run Club, dances, Fun Run, Staff Appreciation Week, Book Fairs, Auction, Boltage walk-or-ride-to-school program and so much more!
Like other top-ranked schools we raise significant additional funds to fill any deficits in public funding to make our school the best it can be.
