Meeting Notice

Bolin PTA will be holding a membership meeting on April 8th at 7pm via zoom. We will be doing board reports, budget amendments & vote on updating our Bylaws and Standing Rules. Please review the invitation and guidelines on our virtual meeting here and if you would like to attend, make sure to register here

Silent Auction

Bolin PTA usually hosts a silent auction every year at open house. With everything being virtual this year, we had to accommodate and go online as well. No more waiting until the last minute to put in your bid, you may now do it from the comfort and safety of your home. 

The silent auction will be our main fundraiser of the year and we would love to get the support of the community. You may start browsing now by clicking here but the bidding will be open on Friday, April 2, 2021. 

PTA Member Perks

It pays off to be a PTA member. Tiff's Treats is donating 50% off coupons to Bolin PTA members. This coupon alone could pay for your membership. It's not too late to become a member. Click here to join! 

A coupon code will be emailed to PTA members and can be used between April 2-5.

The Book fair is now open and it is all virtual! Make sure to create a wishlist for your child and send it to family and friends. You can also post it on social media.

Bolin PTA at work!

We might not have been as present on campus as we would have liked this year but we are still working very hard behind the scenes to support the students, staff and our community. 

The PTA is currently hosting: 

  • book fair currently happening
  • Virtual magic show (April 1)
  • Annual Silent Auction starting on April 2.  

In the next few weeks the PTA will be providing:

  • Snacks to all the students taking STAAR testing
  • Meals or treats to all the staff for Teacher appreciation week
  • Inflatables and Kona Ice truck will be at Field Day
  • Dippin' Dots Ice Cream truck will show up for class parties 
  • Graduation treats for our 6th graders

Because this year is so different, we had to adjust the things we can do and as this unprecedented year is coming to an end, we are trying to spoil the children and staff- covid style! But stay tuned, your new PTA board is already getting excited about what next year will hold.
