Berenda Parent Club
Welcome to Berenda Elementary's Parent Club page!
Berenda has a fabulous parent club! You can find the minutes of our meetings by clicking on the the Agenda and Minutes links at the bottom of this page.
Having a strong parent club is a true blessing to a school. Even if you are not able to attend one of the BPC meetings, you may contact Mr. Christiansen or one of our BPC officers to find out if there are other ways you can support our Broncos and all the great things happening at Berenda.
Boo-Hoo Pictures- Kindergarten parents are with their child a little longer on the first day of school. The parents have a chance to take a picture and a quick introduction to our school is given.
Back to School Theme week - Fun dress up week. Past themes have been superhero, camo, storybook character, cowboy and sports team
Jog-a-thon- The students collect pledges to raise money for field trips. This is a fun day where all students run laps and parents come join the fun.
Fall Fundraiser - A school wide fundraiser, often from a catalog sale, this event allows us to earn the majority of funds to send each student on at least one trip per year.
Red Ribbon Week- This event gets the students aware of the dangers of drugs and alcohol. A visit from D.A.R.E and fun activities take place.
Fall Festival- A family oriented carnival. This carnival gives the teachers a chance to earn money for their classrooms, while providing a safe, fun family activity.
Coats for Kids- Hosted by KISS country, we collect new or slightly used coats for our community. Berenda has won this contest the last 4 years in a row!
Canned Food Drive- This is a time to give back to others. We collect canned foods for the Madera Food Bank.
Kids Craft Day- The students sign up to make holiday gifts for their family, friends, and teachers. The children pay in advance and come on a Saturday to make each craft at a booth run by a parent volunteer. The cost is minimal and the crafts are fun. This is a popular event.
February or March
Spring Fundraiser – Money collected goes into the school field trip fund
Earth Week- We Celebrate Our Mother Earth and learn how to take care of her. We have fun activities and a recycle contest.
Teacher Appreciation- Once a year the parent club serves the teachers and staff a meal and gives a small gift of thanks to remind them how important they are to our children and how much they are appreciated.
Family Fun Night- Is a night of fun for the family. Either a free carnival or movie night takes place or skate night.
Year round events
Box Tops For Education – Box Tops are collected and turned in. Money raised for each classroom STAYS with that classroom!
McTeacher’s Night – Fundraiser in conjunction with McDonald’s. Teachers work behind the counter and help in dining area. Our school earns 20% of all sales that night.
Carl's Jr. Fundraiser Night- A percentage of sales at Carl's Jr. come directly back to us.
We need your help for all of these events
