Membership Drive In Bloom

Watch Us Grow!

 flowers bookmark

Our Burcham PTA Membership Drive has officially has started! This is the time of year where we ask you to join the oldest and most respected advocacy group for children and education! MEMBERSHIP COUNTS as each member represents a person who cares about our kids and their education! So, the more members we have, the more we care and the more we can accomplish locally at our school, in our state and nationally!

Look for the membership packet that was sent home with your child.

You may have some questions about membership with the PTA…



Who should join?

  • Parents
  • Kids – yes, kids can join too!
  • Grandparents
  • Aunts & Uncles
  • Teachers & Staff (past & present)
  • Burcham Alumni
  • Neighbors & Community Members
  • Local Business Owners

How long does the membership last?

A PTA membership is good for one year… pretty much the length of the school year. So, if you were a member last year, we hope you will sign-up again.

What’s in it for me?

  • Members receive a Legoland Child FREE admission special offer while supplies last, we have a limited number .  Members are also eligible for other discounts – more info will be provided with your membership card
  • The opportunity to participate in voting on all Burcham PTA matters
  • The opportunity to show your support for the largest and oldest advocate for children and education.

Welcome Picnic meme 2014

Every year our campus receives the gift of new families!! We are always glad to see the happy faces on our newest Burcham Bobcats and the PTA is eager to welcome these new families into our school community. For this reason, our PTA hosts a Welcome Picnic in August as our way to make families feel comfortable in their new school “home”. If you are new to Burcham, we hope you will make time to attend our Welcome Picnic – to get your questions answered and meet other Burcham families and staff. Welcome! Come on in and make yourself comfortable!

We will be serving pizza, fruit and water (free of charge). Spiritwear (Burcham t-shirts) will be available for purchase at the event. T-shirts at $10 each.
