What You Do Makes a Difference

Hello Families,
We hope you all had a good first couple of weeks of school. Our kids are still adjusting and getting back into the swing of things, but we are happy to be back at Bay Park!
In these first weeks of school you have already been bombarded with ways to get involved – in the school, PTA, 3 minute zones, donations, book fair, safety committees, you name it.  We encourage you not to be overwhelmed by these requests, but jump in and take some on.  Take on whatever works for you – you don’t need to do it all!   It doesn’t matter how much time you have, there’s always something that can work with your schedule.  You will soon start feeling the sense of community and how your time truly does make a difference to not only your own child(ren) but to the other children, teachers, and parents as well.
We have received some questions regarding the PTA and what it’s all about. Do we need to attend the meetings?  What does it mean to be a member?  And many more.  Let me try and help you out!  🙂
Why participate in the pledge drive?  This Pledge Drive is one of three major fundraisers in the school. Any money you give is just money going back to the school. It pays for our snow day, art teacher, field trips, school community activities, and many more. Your child benefits from this all! The experiences at BPE are because of the money generous donors have given to us and we would like to continue making a difference in the lives of the students.  Anyone can join-aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.
Why become a member of the PTA?  We all chose this school for a reason, for what we thought it would do for our child(ren)…the only way the school can continue to provide that (and more!) for our child(ren) is if WE (every one of us) help…time, money, etc. The school district and school do not have the resources to do it – it’s parents that make it.  This is your chance to make a difference and voice any opinions, vote on budget allocations, and be involved!  This group of dedicated people has the childrens best interest at heart. We want to make the learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom are memorable and impactful.  If it wasn’t for this group (and your donations) there would be no Junior Theater program, no art teacher, no mural that was painted on the small wall the children see everyday, no Stingray Store for the children to spend their hard earned Stingray Bucks at.  Being a part of this and seeing the outcome of all the hard work is more rewarding than anything you can possibly imagine. You see it in the smiling faces of the children you’ve helped create these experiences for.
Don’t have time?  It doesn’t matter. Come to the meetings if you can. Donate your time anywhere you see fit.  Donate financially at a level that feels right for your family.  Being involved shows your child your commitment to their education and that you want to be there for them even if it’s not helping out in the classroom.

San Diego Junior Theatre After-school Program


BPE PTA has partnered with the San Diego Junior Theatre to bring an after school theatre program to Bay Park Elementary!

Over the years, thousands of students have enjoyed theatre arts, dance, movement and acting classes from San Diego Junior Theatre.  Students combine theatre skills (voice, movement, communication, imagination) with the experience of rehearsing and performing an abbreviated version of a popular musical show.  They present the show on the last day of the class, and the show usually lasts between 25-30 minutes. The show for the first session is The Lion King.

Who Can Participate?
Grades 1st – 5th

When is the Program?
Every Wednesday
1:10pm – 2:40pm
September 21st – November 9th

Where is the Program Held?
BPE Library

What is the Cost?
The cost of the 8-week program is $120.00*

Please note: we anticipate a high attendance for this program, so registrations will be taken on a first come first serve basis until we reach the maximum # of students.

To Register click here.  Please note: Registration is a 2-part process.

*A portion of your tuition will go towards future funding of The Arts (art, music, theatre, etc) at Bay Park Elementary. Our hope is to bring more Arts to the school as part of the regular school day!

If you have any questions about the program or how to register, please email Madeline Schmidt:

Message from PTA President Meg Fegan

I can’t believe another year is almost in the books and what an eventful year it has been! As I look back on my time as PTA President, I am filled with gratitude for so many things.

I am deeply grateful for our amazing teachers and staff who have nurtured our children’s hearts and minds every day. I am thankful for the relationships our children and family have developed and grateful for the community we have at Bay Park, which continues to grow stronger.

I am grateful for all of our wonderful, hard-working volunteers, who along with generous donations from our parents and community, have made so many cool things possible for our students.

The volunteers who staffed events and programs such as the Ice Cream Social, Halloween Carnival and Trunk or Treat, Jog- a-thon, Stingray Store, Jogging Club, Junior Achievement and Biztown, Valentine’s Dance, Holiday Store, Fiesta, Reading Night, Movie Night, Bay Park Gardens showcased in the Clairemont Garden Tour, all of our Room Parents and classroom volunteers, and many more…


The donations from our community who made monthly Art classes possible for every student, run by our own, incredible and very talented “Ms. Jenn,” after-school Bay Park Choir, directed by the amazing Kyle Blase, additional in-class Cultural Arts programs, 4th grade music, all of our field trip buses, the BMX safety assembly, the beautiful mural which now lines the blacktop ramps and brightens our campus…


Lastly, I am also grateful for…SUMMER! Wishing all of you a safe and happy one!
