Hello Bendwood community!

My name is Nicole Knutsen; and I am excited to be the PTA president for the 2020-2021 school year. I have a fourth grader at Bendwood and although this will be an unusual year, we look forward to what’s in store!

Our students, teachers, and staff are ready for a wonderful year of learning! Did you know that our PTA is responsible for about 80 percent of the curriculum budget for the upcoming school year? We need your help to fund the valuable programs and materials that will make this year a wonderful experience for your child.

There are a variety of ways you can continue your support of the Bendwood PTA. Please visit to take advantage of the following opportunities:

Join the PTA!

Donate to the Underwriting campaign (as a business and/or a family)

Donate to the Teacher Appreciation fund

The PTA website also has information about potential PPCD family events, SPIRAL curriculum nights, and general PTA meetings.   In addition, information will be coming about Spirit Nights, the annual Book Fair, and other engaging and fun events!

Please feel free to contact me at with questions or suggestions. As the school year gets underway, I look forward to seeing those of you I know, and meeting those of you I don’t!

Thank you for your support!

Nicole Knutsen
