Greetings Bay Point Families,

Please join us this Friday evening (Nov. 11, 6-8pm) in the cafeteria for Family Movie Night. We will be showing The Angry Birds Movie. Admission is free. The popcorn is free. It should be lots of fun! Remember to bring blankets and pillows, if your child would like to sprawl out on the floor and watch the movie with their friends.

Did you know that November is Florida Family Engagement month? Our PTA at Bay Point Elementary wants to engage you by asking for your feedback. Please tell us…

  • What types of events/programs would you like for PTA to offer this spring?
  • Does anybody have a great Spring Fundraising idea?
  • How can we best show our appreciation for Bay Point’s hardworking teachers?
  • How can we best support our students?

Remember, being engaged also means staying informed. How do you find out what’s happening at BPE? Do you ask your child what’s going on and check their backpacks regularly for informational flyers? Do you take the time to listen to the school’s Connect-Ed phone calls? Have you ever checked the calendar on the school’s website to see what’s coming up this week and next? Do you ‘Follow Us’ on Facebook?

Here’s a little tidbit that I’d like to share. How many of you know that you can sign up to receive electronic versions of flyers? The process is actually very easy. Just go to the school’s website ( and click on the ‘Peachjar eflyers’ icon to register.

A few more helpful ways for you to stay engaged…

  • You can Join PTA and become a member.
  • You can serve on a PTA committee (Activities, Programs, Fundraising, Hospitality, T-shirts). We need your fresh ideas and enthusiasm to help plan our spring activities and events!
  • You can volunteer to lend a hand at one or our many events.
  • Most importantly, though, we want for you and your family to participate in our activities and events.

Hope to see you all Friday night!
