Welcome to the Blue Heron PTA website!

We are excited that you have found us here!

We are busy at work trying to keep you and your families up-to-date with the most recent news and happenings from our PTA.

Our goal and mission is for the PTA to be a powerful voice for ALL children. We strive to be a relevant resource for families in our community, and to be a stong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.

A huge goal we are working on this year is increasing parental involvement in our school. There are many ways to be involved in your children’s school.  At Blue Heron, we have several events throughout the year to participate in. Whether you are a work-on-the-sidelines kind of parent or a direct-hands-on parent, there is a job for you.  Research shows how important parental involvement is – check out this video Parent Involvement Matters!

Save this is website in your favorites so you can continually check back www.blueheronpta.org

Please email us at pta.blueheronelementary@gmail.com if you find you are able to help the PTA out in anyway possible!

Thank You,

Melissa Kirkpatrick and Lisa Wera PTA Co-Presidents

Grant Proposal Meeting

Last Monday the grant committee listened to 11 proposals that staff members had submitted to the PTA for funding.  These included requests for more books in classrooms, “in-house” field trips, math manipulatives, playground equipment, and professional development. We were able to approve every request for a total amount of over $5000!! Thank you for your continued support of our school!

Back to School Night Presentation

We had a nice turn out of parents and care givers at back to school night.  The ladies from the PTA board shared a nice presentation about what we do for Blue Heron Elementary.  If you missed the presentation, there is a copy of the power point presentation here.

Our first PTA meeting of the year will be held on Thursday, September 14th at 3:45 pm.  Stop by to see what you can do to volunteer in the next few months.  Our popular Fall Festival is coming up in October and we are still in need of volunteers to help plan and participate in the festival!

If you are interested in joining the PTA as a paid member, you can sign up at this link.   If you still would like to help out, but are not able to volunteer we have a direct link for monetary donations.

Thank you for your support! And remember Many Hands make Light Work!

Blue Heron PTA and Kings Soopers Program

Everyone needs groceries and gas, why not give 5% of your purchases to our school?

It is as easy as: PURCHASE, LOAD, SHOP…

PURCHASE – simply purchase your re-loadable King Soopers card from the PTA through the link below for $5.  You will receive $5 dollars on the card, so essentially your card is free.  Please encourage family and friends to also purchase King Soopers gift cards through our school! Don’t forget to let them know that they can reload the card at the register and continue to support our school.

LOAD – you can reload (add value to) your card indefinitely at the register or Customer Service Desk  or register for any amount up to $500, you may use your debit or credit card to load. Tell the cashier that you would like to add money to your gift card BEFORE they ring up your groceries then pay with your gift card.  You can also use the gift card for gas at King Soopers.

SHOP – KEEP YOUR CARD and use it whenever you shop or BUY GAS at Kings Soopers.  Gift cards may be used at City Market Fuel Centers and are accepted at most Kroger affiliated stores through the U.S. Each time we reach $5,000 as a group, King Soopers sends a 5% check to our PTA!

 

There is no cost to you or to the PTA and our children will reap the benefits!  Thank you for supporting your PTA!

Purchase your King Soopers card(s) online here!  They will be sent home in your child’s Friday Folder
