Committees and Chairs
PTF is made up of many Committees that work throughout the school year and beyond. Through their work, the Committees, headed by a Chair, help to raise money for PTF, support our teachers & staff, sponsor academic events for students, and so much more. PTF is always looking for volunteers - check out our volunteer page or reach out to us today!

High School Liaison
Chair: Carol Caesar
Our high school liaison plays an important role to connect our high schools students' needs with the causes and events sponsored by PTF.

The Chair also helps to identify areas where the high school may need support, such as fundraisers, and coordinate with the PTF to find events to fill in the gaps.

Homeroom parents play a vital role in our elementary classrooms all year long. From organizing parties to collecting donations for teacher gifts, and creating art pieces for the Partnership Dinner, the Chair provides structure and guidance to help parents help our teachers.
Chair: Laura Welsh
Helping foster good math skills in our elementary students is vital, and Math Command works to do just that. Through bi-weekly tests (weekly for 5th grade), Math Command, with the help of a Chair and graders, work with the teachers to test math quick skills. Students work through levels beginning in kindergarten, and ending at General in 5th grade. Those students who are able to complete the General level receive a special party at the end of the year.

New Family Welcome
Chair: Melissa and Chris Ruiz
New BCS families and parents always have new questions or didn't know they needed to know something until after the fact. Our New Family Welcome Chair works with new families as a point of contact for all things BCS. Knowing how many uniforms kids really need, to what a birthday book is, our Chair helps navigate parents through their new year at BCS and helps them become well-informed and feel at ease in our community.
Chair: Stephanie Stout
Teaming with local restaurants, BCS puts together family restaurant nights several times a year. On designated nights, BCS receives a portion of the food sales to help support the school. Family restaurant nights are frequently centered around school events such as Back to School night.
School Supply Packs
Chair: Susan Gonzales
Each year, BCS works with a vendor to put together school supply packs that include all of the required supplies for each grade. The Chair works to get the packs established, advertised, and distributed before school starts.
Scripps Spelling Bee
Chair: Jane Humphrey
BCS participates in the Scripps Spelling Bee each year. The Spelling Bee Chair and committee work to organize grade level spelling bee tests that result in a school-wide spelling bee. The elementary and middle school students then compete in front of the school to become the top BCS speller. The top performers receive school trophies and the winner moves on to the Texas regional bee, hopefully advancing to state and nationals.
Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
Chair: Tasha Lopez
Two times a year, we celebrate our teachers by providing a catered luncheon. The TAL Chair helps to organize a well-deserved special day for our teachers each fall and spring. Using donations from our homeroom parents as well as membership fees, we decorate and feed and pamper our teachers for an afternoon.
Chair: Anna Treadwell
Uniform Resale is our 2nd largest PTF fundraiser. Held twice a year, and sometimes more, we organize an event to allow parents to sell their used uniforms and BCS items that are no longer needed. This helps parents make money on unneeded items while budgeting for new uniforms. This is a very popular vent and widely attended each year.
VIP Service Needs
Chair: Rose Valladares
There is always something going on around the BCS campus and volunteers are always needed. Our VIP Service Needs Chair helps our other Chairs, as well as teachers and staff, put the call out when volunteers are needed. This makes it easy for parents to earn VIP hours and to get involved in various activities around school.
Workroom / Staff Hospitality
Chair: Jodi Cardenas
To make sure our teachers and staff know they are appreciated all year long, we provide them with special treats and snacks in their workrooms. The Workroom/Staff Hospitality Chair helps to deliver and set up goodies each month in the various workrooms around campus.
Young Author Contest
Chair: Rhonda Kinser
Each fall, our elementary students put on their imagination caps, get creative, and become young authors. They create stories, comics, and even brochures, both written and illustrated. The submissions are later judged by a panel of volunteer judges, and awards are given to the best author in each category.
