How do my PTA contributions help my student and Bedford Middle School?

The BMS PTA is a not-for-profit organization that receives 100% of its funding from parent contributions, fundraising programs and PTA dues. This money is then used to directly benefit our students and staff. The PTA runs over 40 programs throughout the year including community events for our students, teacher grant programs to support innovative learning opportunities, and events to connect our parents with the school.

We are thankful to countless generous members of our community, supporting our fundraising efforts. Below you will find a compressive list of BMS PTA sponsored events and programs.
