The Bendwood Elementary School PTA
Underwriting Campaign 2021-2022

The Bendwood Elementary School PTA asks for your support as a business underwriter. Bendwood Elementary School is part of the Spring Branch Independent School District and is located on Kimberley Lane, close to the Town and Country and City Centre retail centers.


WHO ARE WE?

Bendwood Elementary houses two extremely important programs:

  1. SBISD’s Gifted and Talented program (SPIRAL) allows each elementary school to send their third through fifth grade gifted and talented students to Bendwood all day, once a week, for a specialized curriculum in language arts, science, and math.
  2. The Early Childhood Special Education program provides early intervention and a nurturing environment to help children with disabilities meet their individual needs and prepare them for kindergarten. The program is a comprehensive continuum of services for children ages 3 to 5 who have an Individual Education Plan with identified delays in one or more of the five developmental areas: cognition, communication, self help, fine/gross motor, and social/emotional. CUBS serves 3- to 5-year-old students who require a highly structured classroom environment and an increased adult-to-student ratio. The CUBS classroom structure places increased emphasis on the acquisition of positive behavioral skills and appropriate communication and socialization with peers and adults.

This year, about 1,000 students from 25 SBISD schools will attend Bendwood each week.


WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

Our PTA is responsible for about 80 percent of the curriculum budget for the upcoming school year. All funds raised will go directly to the Bendwood PTA to provide curriculum materials, continue technology upgrades, and fund teacher training, student field trips, and special classroom projects.

Currently, Bendwood is provided with less than $5 per student for the entire academic year!
