The Bendwood Elementary School PTA
Underwriting Campaign 2017-2018

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 3rd- 5th grade gifted and talented (GT) students to Bendwood all day, once a week for a specialized curriculum in language arts, science and math.
  2. The preschool program for children with disabilities (PPCD) is a unique program that provides early intervention and a nurturing environment to help children with disabilities meet their individual needs and prepare them for Kindergarten.

This year, 1000 students from 25 SBISD schools will attend Bendwood each week, doubling our enrollment over 2 years.


WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

As state budget cuts have persisted, SBISD was forced for the ninth consecutive year to provide substantially reduced funds for the curriculum. Our PTA is responsible for ~80% 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 $3 per student for the entire academic year!


UNDERWRITING LEVELS AND BENEFITS:

The Bendwood PTA has decided not to produce a printed directory this year due to our later starting date and the lead time and cost required for printing. We understand that ads in our directory have been a valuable marketing tool in past years, but know that our website, Facebook page, marquee and other digital media also provide significant visibility for our underwriters.
