FALL 2016Hello Bel Aire Parents,Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year! Welcome back to all the returning families and a special greeting to the families new to Bel Aire and/or the district. RUSD PTA brings together parents, teachers and staff of the Reed Union School District to provide parent volunteerism and special programs that enrich the lives of our children and school community.
One way to show your support is to become a member of the PTA. The PTA relies upon yearly family dues to fund our many programs. At Bel Aire, the programs PTA supports are field trips, assemblies, teacher training and appreciation, author visits, guest speakers, lunchtime enrichment and much more.
PTA fundraising is also supported through our Yearbooks, Birthday Books, Book Fairs, Spirit Wear and Choice Lunch. Yearbooks are a fun way to remember the year and a handy tool to look up members of your child's class the following year. A major part of our fundraising for PTA is supported with proceeds from a portion of every lunch you order through our hot lunch program, Choice Lunch. It's a great way to nourish your child and support our PTA programs at the same time.
You can take care of all of these things on the link below in The PTA Back to School Checklist. It's easy... just a click away and we can’t do it without you!
