My name is Rebecca Cullen and I am so excited to serve as PTA President for the 2019 – 2020 school year. I have two bears at Birmingham and have loved every moment so far of our four years here. The staff and students are so great and I appreciate the opportunity to work alongside them all.

Birmingham PTA sponsors numerous events throughout the year including Pancakes with Bearington, Fall Family Night, fundraising events, class parties, Carnival, Field Day, dances, treats for the staff, and special breakfasts. We are also able to provide teachers with extra funding to help fill the classrooms with necessities. Your $8 membership and participation in our annual fundraisers goes a long way! Visit http://www.joinpta.org/ today to sign up or find the membership table at any of our events. Part of your membership dues goes towards Texas PTA to fight for our students and teachers at the state and national levels. For the 2018 – 2019 school year Birmingham PTA received the Golden Apple, Membership Increase, Three Year High, President’s Challenge, and Silver Voice for Every Child award from Texas PTA. Our goal for this year is to win them all again, so please join us and lend your voice for all of our students.
There are numerous opportunities for you to volunteer on and off campus! It can be something as simple as stapling books together or as big as decorating hallways. It does not take a lot of time to make an impact. If you are interested in volunteering please complete your background check online; https://web.wylieisd.net/BackgroundCheck/BkgroudCkForm.aspx all of your information is kept private. This form is required before you can serve on campus or receive a precheck badge. The precheck badge will get you in the door quicker for class parties, award ceremonies, Bear Boogies, or other events during school hours. Make sure to get your badge early!
I look forward to working with the Birmingham PTA Board this year, we have a strong group already hard at work and a few spots still available if you would like to join. Please contact me if you have any questions firstname.lastname@example.org or would like more information.
