Bonny Kate Elementary School PTA


    This page will serve as a hub of Bonny Kate Elementary School and PTA information for the 2021 - 2022 school year. There are still a number of uncertainies with the upcoming school year, but we will keep you as updated as possible. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the PTA Board members. There is a list of the members and which committes they head on this page to better help you decide who to contact. 



    We are creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our Bonny Kate community. These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for us all. Printed cookbooks will be available for purchase in Spring 2022 and will be a great Mother’s Day gift!  Money raised will be used for the Bonny Kate PTA.


    Our PTA cookbook is for all Bonny Kate families, teachers, retired teachers, staff, alumni and community members.  Here’s more information for you to participate in this special project for our school:


    Please submit 3-5 of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook.  Many recipes from all members will ensure that our cookbook is a success. We are using Morris Press Cookbook’s web site to easily submit recipes online. If you do not have Internet access, our PTA Cookbook Committee can enter them for you. Submit hardcopies of your recipes to our PTA mailbox at the school office. 


    Please submit your recipes online by January 21, 2022, so we can meet our deadline.


    To Submit Recipes Online:

    1. Go to https://www.typensave.com/ and click ‘Login.’
    2. Enter the User Name: BK-PTA Cookbook           
    3. Enter the password: oregano898
    4. Click ‘Submit.’
    5. Enter your name and click ‘Continue.’
    6. Click ‘Add Recipes’ to begin adding your recipes.
    7. This is super easy and can be done faster than you can say, “What’s for dinner?”


    Recipe Writing Tips:

    • When adding recipes, review the “Tips” and use standard abbreviations.
    • Only enter 1 ingredient per ingredient line.
    • List ingredients in order of use in the ingredients list and directions.
    • Include container sizes, e.g., (16-oz.) pkg., (24-oz.) can.
    • Write directions in paragraph form, not in steps.
    • Use names of ingredients in the directions, e.g., “Combine flour and sugar.”  DO NOT use statements like, “Combine first three ingredients.”
    • Include temperatures and cooking, chilling, baking, and/or freezing times.
    • Additional comments about the recipe (history, nutritional data, suggested uses, etc.) are not allowed unless a “Recipe Note” field is visible. Enter extra recipe content in that field.


    We anticipate a great demand for our cookbooks, and we want to be certain to order enough. To reserve your copies, 1) the slip below may be given to your child’s teacher or 2) email the PTA Cookbook Committee at bonnykatepta@gmail.com with the number of cookbooks you will be purchasing. Cookbooks will be available for $10.00 each.


    We are so excited about this community cookbook and hope that you will share a recipe or two with our Bonny Kate Family!  Thank you for all you do for our school and community!

    remind 101

    Dear Families,

    As a way to keep you more up to date on the events taking place at out school, I would like to introduce you to Remind 101! Remind 101 is a free messaging system that will allow us to send out text message reminders to those parents who choose to subscribe. Here’s how it works …

    • If you choose to subscribe, text our class code: @bkes2020 to


    • You should then receive a text message that states the following. “Thanks! Bonny Kate Elementary School needs to know who you are. Please reply with your full name. Note: The name you send will be saved and used for all future classes.”


    • After you reply with your name you should receive one more message stating “Thanks (your name)! As a member of @bkes2020, you will receive all of Bonny Kate Elementary Schools Remind notifications. Reply HELP for commands.”


    • The End . You will now automatically be updated with school reminders! This is such a great tool for us as it saves time AND trees by cutting down on typing up notes, printing them off, and making copies!


    We plan on using the Remind text messaging system and posting to Facebook throughout the year as needs and volunteer opportunities arise. We encourage you to join the text message group, to join the Bonny Kate Facebook page, and to regularly check the Bonny Kate website for updates.


    Remind is a yearly subscription and must be signed up for each year.


    If you have any questions about Remind App, please feel free to email melanie.mclemore@gmail.com
