The PTA website will be closing out the 2021-22 school year on June 30th. Emails will be sent when the site is ready for the new school year and when you can join as a PTA member. We appreciate the support of all of our members and strive to provide an incredible experience beyond the classroom for our children.
As a reminder, our PTA is run by parent volunteers. If you are interested in becoming involved, please reach out to email@example.com. There's always a way to help out if we know you're interested and you can pick and choose how you help based on your interests and skills.
In the meantime, sit back, relax, and enjoy all the pleasures of summer!

Did you know that every school in Ridgefield has a Special Services Representative?
Special Services representatives are eager to support their school community in the following ways:
Help provide information about the special education process and/or additional learning support that might be available to students.
Help direct family members to the right school and community resources.
Offer emotional support to families through informal chats.
Provide district special education updates.
This is a PTA position, designed to support the needs of all families in the school district, especially those with children receiving special services through an IEP or 504. Special Services Representatives serve their individual school community, as well as attend monthly meetings with the Ridgefield Special Services administration.
As a council with the special services administration, representatives collaborate in the following ways:
Gather program updates from each school and from the special education administration.
Discuss special education-specific PTA programming or enrichment.
Communicate these updates to the individual schools and families we represent.
All families are welcome to contact their Special Services Representative at any time with questions or concerns. We are here to help!
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year and the BMES PTA Website.
Please create an account to continue.
It's only by creating an account that you can be included in the directory, class lists, and E-blast lists. All users must update their account information every year. Existing users, please sign in to your account and update your family information.

We love our volunteers and appreciate any amount of time you are able to give.
