We are currently at 70% for PTA memberships, and our goal is to reach 100%! Bethel is known to have a very strong PTA, but we can only do that with your support. Please participate in our membership drive! Every person that joins the PTA from now until Dec. 9th will be entered in a drawing to win a 3 month couple membership to the Sportsclub (valued at $417). PTA memberships are $5.00 each. You can join as many times as you like to better your chances of winning. Family members such as aunts, uncles and grandparents can join also. The PTA membership form is on the website, or you can just send in $5.00 with your child’s name and teacher’s name labeled PTA membership.
