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
Our High School Liaisons play an important role to connect our high schools students' needs with the causes and events sponsored by PTF. The Liaisons work with the high school community to provide service opportunities to the students, while helping PTF fill volunteer positions. The Liaisons also help 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 Parent Liaison
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 Liaison provides structure and guidance to help parents help our teachers.

Our Chairs coordinate practices, coaches, volunteers, and the big spring tournament.
Middle School Liaison
This position is the same as our High School Liaison, except for our middle school. The Liaisons work with the High School Liaisons to coordinate as many events as possible and act as a go between for PTF and the Middle School community.
New Family Liaison
New BCS families and parents always have questions or didn't know they needed to know something until after the fact.

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 event 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.

Young Author Contest
