• Join BMS PTA WELCOME to the 2018-2019 school year at Bearden Middle School! The Bearden Middle PTA has lots of opportunities and ideas to help you get involved during your child's middle school years. Please contact our President, Shannon Thackston with questions, thoughts, suggestions for helping to make our PTA more supportive of our school, students and staff. Are you receiving our weekly PTA e-newsletter? If not, please email Cathy McCaughan and ask to be added to the distribution list.
  • Why Become a Member of PTA? $6 of your $10 membership helps fund items the school's budget doesn't cover. Joining the PTA does not obligate you to volunteer or attend meetings, although we hope you will join us as your schedule allows! Simply include your membership dues of $10 with the PTA Membership form (download below, or get a copy in the Main Office). $6 of that stays here at BMS to help support our many activities and initiatives; the remaining $4 goes to local, state, and national dues to support child-advocacy initiatives. 


    Why suppport the Enrichment Fund? Any additional funds over $10 go to our Enrichment Fund, which supports funding gaps for technology, devices, books, programs, etc. Membership levels are as follows:  FRIEND LEVEL $1-$99, RED LEVEL $100-$179, WHITE LEVEL $180-$364, BLUE LEVEL $365-$499, BRUIN LEVEL $500-$999 and CORPORATE LEVEL $1000+.


    Thank you for supporting the BMS PTA and our Enrichment Fund!
