There are lots of ways to support BEPTA and reap the benefits for you and your children:


2. JOIN THE PTA Your household's $40 annual dues keep the PTA running to support the students, teachers, and community.

3. CONTRIBUTE TO THE BE STUDENT FUND The Student Fund is our major annual fundraising campaign. The PTA will use the funds we raise this fall in the upcoming school year to:

  • Support students through classroom technology and art and science enrichment

  • Aid teachers with additional training, technology, and supplies

  • Build community through fun, enriching, and inclusive events


To fully support the educational, cultural, and social programs the PTA is planning for our kids and our community, we hope to raise an average of $160 per child through the Student Fund. You may make tax deductible contributions in an amount that is right for you and your family. If you prefer to donate by check, or if a member of your extended family would like to contribute to the Student Fund, you may download a donation form in English, French, Spanish, or Japanese. Additional information in French, Spanish, and Japanese is also available. 

4. REGISTER YOUR GROCERY CARDS: Find out how to link your cards to BEPTA and earn money for the school.


5. SHOP AMAZON: Before you start shopping, click on the Amazon logo on the home page of the bepta website and it will link you to Amazon.  When you do this, BE earns a percentage of the sales.  Please note: in order for the school to receive the highest percentage, you cannot bookmark the Amazon link and you must access Amazon via clicking through the bepta website.


6. SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER--The "Parent" in PTA relies on its parent volunteers for everything from being President of the PTA, to planting flowers, being a room parent, or helping with the Used Book Sale. Volunteer as much or as little as your schedule allows. 


7. PARTICIPATE IN RESTAURANT SPONSORED EVENTS During the school year we will announce BE Restaurant Nights at local eateries. A portion of dine in or takeout orders will benefit the PTA. 

November 21st is BE Night at Potomac Pizza! Visit Potomac Pizza (19 Wisconsin Circle, Chevy Chase) anytime between 4-9PM, MENTION BETHESDA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL before you pay your bill and the school gets back 20% of money spent. Offer is for dine in and carry out only.
