Lifetime Membership Award

Receiving an Honorary Life Membership Award is one of the highest forms of recognition  a volunteer can receive. This year, Bolin PTA awarded Nurse Linda Daniels and Bookfair Chair Durga Karthikeyan with the Lifetime Membership Awards. Those two individuals went above and beyond this past year to support our children and community. We truly appreciate their dedication.

At Home Learners

You guys did it! Congratulations on your commitment. We are so very proud of you. As we are planning the end of the year, we didn't want to forget you in our celebration. Here are a couple fun things for you to attend. 

Field Day - May 17: Come and enjoy a Kona Snow Cone between 11am and 12pm at school. The Kona Snow Cone truck is sponsored by Bolin PTA. This is for students only.

May 19: Come and enjoy Dippin Dots between 3-3:30pm in the parking lot of the school to celebrate the end of the school year. The Dippin Dots truck is sponsored by the Bolin PTA. This is for students only.

We need you!

Bolin PTA is actively looking for a Vice President Volunteers, Communication Chair, Council Delegate, Book Fair Chair, Environmental Chair, WatchDOGS Chair and Teacher Appreciation Chair for the 2021-2022 school year. If you would like to know more about those positions or are interested in joining the board please contact Chelsea Posey at parliamentarian@bolinpta.com or Helene St-Pierre at president@bolinpta.com

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. 

In the next couple 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. 

Let's Light Those Candles!!!!
