Do you own or work for a local business? Do you know someone who does?
Bay Park Elementary, and our community of over 500+, as well as all those who come in contact with our school and our kids, has an opportunity for YOUR business!
As part of our fundraising efforts to bring amazing programs (educational, art, music, theatre, reading, software, field trips, assemblies, amazing events, and more) to our school for our kids, we have created opportunities for local businesses to show their support of our school, our community, and increase visibility to their business!
We have 3 different ways businesses can jump in and support – through our Fall Fundraiser and/or Jog-a-thon (2 of our 3 major fundraisers this year).

Fall Fundraiser is going on now!!!
Donate today to help fund the amazing programs at Bay Park Elementary!
Our kids enjoy many supplemental educational programs and activities each year at Bay Park Elementary. These are not provided by the district but through parent (and grandparent and friend!) donations. Currently we fund an art program, 2-3 field trips per child, educational assemblies, after school choir, classroom supplies, and much much more. As a result of our generous donations last year we were able to expand art classes, start a musical theater program and fund an extra spring field trip for our Stingrays. We hope to continue all of these programs again this year!
We hold three major fundraisers each year, the Fall Fundraiser, the Jog-A-Thon, and the Spring Auction. Each of these efforts must be a success in order to continue all the programs we provide. If we exceed our goals, let’s think about adding more programs for our kids!
Look for your Fall Fundraiser information sheet in your back to school information packet, pick up one at the school office, or donate here!
