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

Skate City Party

This is a private skate party for Blue Heron Families only.  Let your kids ride the Skate City bus or drive them yourself and join in the fun.  This is a great time for beginner skaters because its a smaller crowd.  The bus picks up students right after 3:30 dismissal and will return back to the school between 6 and 6:15.  All bus riders will need to have a signed permission slip —  Teachers DO NOT collect the slips or any money for this event.  Just send all money, permission slips (and skates if bringing your own) directly with your child on Thur. Please be on time to pick up your child if he/she is riding the bus back to the school.  Students can also be picked up right from Skate City.  If we have at least 125 paid skaters (students and parents count), the class with the highest attendance will win the Golden Skate Trophy AND $100!  If you have any questions, please call Lisa at 303-507-9317

Help Wanted !!!!!!!

Blue Heron is in need of a few good volunteers!

*Room Parent Coordinator organizes all of the room parents for the school and takes the stress out of volunteering! They will send out reminders about upcoming holiday parties and offer suggestions and ideas for those parties. Additionally, they’ll help facilitate reminders for teacher appreciation week, ideas for gift giving and other duties as needed.  This job can be done from the comfort of your own home, by yourself or with a friend and last year’s coordinator saved all of her notes so there is minimal need to start from scratch.  

*School Yearbook Co-Chair to help Ms Pearcy put together all of the fun candid shots.  This is another job that can be done from home.  

*Edukit Program Coordinator helps with the paperwork for the company that offers parents a convenient way to purchase all of the school supplies and delivers them by the first day of school.  This involves some time this spring and fall of 2018.  

Treasurer or Co-Treasurers for the 2018-2019 school year!  The current Treasurers will be done with their 2 year positions and would be happy to start showing someone how easy the job is.

Please contact us for more info on any of the above positions.

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

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!
