BVMS PTA Welcome



Dear Beverly Vista Middle School Families,

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!

As we kick off the school year, your BVMS PTA is energized in its commitment to revitalize our community and support programs that excite and engage our children academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.

This year, the BVMS PTA is committed to:
  • Supporting and enhancing academic, elective, and extracurricular programming through hands-on learning opportunities, enrichment assemblies, guest speakers, and field trips.
  • Fostering the self-care of our children through fitness and wellness.
  • Strengthening our parent community by offering unique social opportunities designed to unite our incredible group of families.
  • Upgrading our facilities to inspire our students to thrive.

Please get involved in any way you can. Here are four great ways to get started:

  • Volunteer! Join a committee to help organize engaging programs for students & parents.
  • Donate to the Annual Fund to enhance programs with hands-on activities and enrichment opportunities.
  • Attend PTA meetings to meet new parents, contribute ideas, share concerns, and help shape our agenda. Meetings will take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Our first meeting will be on August 24th at 8:30 am.
  • Read the weekly PTA e-newsletter, the Bulldog Blast, for the latest school news delivered to your inbox every Sunday at 6:00pm!
We invite all families to become members of our BVMS PTA to help us ignite the power of our spirited community with new opportunities for all! Please register your family in the BVMS Membership Toolkit School Directory today!
Please meet our wonderful new Executive Board Team and email us at [email protected] with any questions, suggestions, or ideas.
We are looking forward to rising together to meet new challenges and celebrating new successes.
We are ALL IN for our kids at BVMS! GO BULLDOGS!
Kim Hartley & Nathan Kruger
BVMS PTA President & Executive VP

With schools facing challenges like shrinking budgets and lack of educational equity, PTA is more important than ever.


The PTA provides programs that strengthen family-school partnerships, and free resources for members on issues and areas such as STEM and health & safety.


Be a part of a powerful association than can advocate on behalf of children and educators at the local, state and national levels.
