BVMS Membership & Annual Fund
Dear BVMS Families,
One of the most valuable ways for our Bulldog families to demonstrate commitment to our school community is by supporting our PTA. Despite the changes in the delivery of middle school curriculum and instruction this year , the goal of the BVMS PTA remains the same: to give everyONE of our students the best educational opportunity possible, filled with diverse and expanded learning experiences. Through your financial contributions, the PTA can support and enrich core academics, extracurricular activities, social emotional needs and help to create a unique virtual campus environment.
Specific examples include:
- Positive Behavior Program (PBIS)
- Arts and Science Programs
- Virtual Field Trips
- Technology and materials to support STEAM
- Supplemental Curriculum Enrichment
- Parent Education Speaker Series
- Community Building Activities for Students, to connect-from-home
Here's how you can help:
Membership: Take the time now to join the PTA for only $10. Through PTA membership, you stay connected to the parent community and add your voice to the decision-making process for student advocacy at BVMS. You also enjoy discounts and benefits offered by the California PTA when you show your membership card. Our 2020-21 goal is to get 100% of our BVMS families to join. Please note that the first $10 of any donation you make will be applied to PTA membership.
Annual Fund: Programs like those listed above can be sustained only through donations to the PTA Annual Fund. EVERY DONATION THAT WE RECEIVE THIS YEAR MAKES A TREMENDOUS DIFFERENCE TO THE SUPPLEMENTAL PROGRAMMING WE CAN OFFER OUR STUDENTS! Remember that everyONE counts! Every donation in any amount helps us to achieve our goals and makes a difference!
Thank you for your commitment to the success of our school. Here's to unleashing another fantastic year! Together our community will grow and thrive!

ANNUAL FUND FAQ
WHAT IS THE BVMS ANNUAL FUND?

Contributions to the annual fund pay for school programs and services not funded by the Beverly Hills Unified School District (BHUSD) or the State of California such as supplemental student enrichment activities and supplies.
HOW DOES BVMS ANNUAL FUND DIFFER FROM PTA MEMBERSHIP?
While BVPTA ANNUAL FUND raises money for the school, PTA is part of a national organization which advocates on behalf of all students. For only $10, your PTA membership allows you to vote at PTA meetings on important issues affecting students at BVMS. Members also receive discounts at various businesses in Southern California.
HOW DOES BVMS ANNUAL FUND DIFFER FROM OTHER BEVERLY VISTA FUNDRAISERS?
BVMS ANNUAL FUND is our primary fundraiser that raises money for many of the programs and services our students receive at Beverly Vista Middle School.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I CONTRIBUTE TO BVMS THIS YEAR?
Your contribution of $10 for PTA membership and a donation in any amount towards Annual Fund will help us to achieve our 2020-21 Annual Fund Goals.
