Have you checked with your companies to see if your company/employer match? If you aren't sure check out this website! https://www.alaskapublic.org/support/matching-gifts/
Here are a few:
Alaska Airlines, Alyeska Pipeline, Conoco Phillips, Wells Fargo, State Farm, REI, AT&T, and UBS.
PTA members support our school in ways budget limitations have made difficult for the school alone by purchasing items and supporting programs to enhance our children’s education.
SPIRIT WEAR AND REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS
We have limited supplies of spirit wear from years' past. Please contact Meredith Bass at email@example.com to see if they have your child's size. We have a new Online Spirit Shop this year, with new styles and designs you can order.
UPDATES WILL GO HOME IN THE WEEKLY NEWSLETTERS AND ANNOUNCED ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE TO INFORM YOU WHEN THE SPIRIT SHOP IS OPEN!
PTA WISH LIST
Our awesome noon duties have put together an Amazon Wish List for a variety of outdoor recess equipment that will be available to all students during recess to enhance their playtime!
If you are signed up to contribute to Bear Valley PTA through Amazon Smile you can increase your impact by starting at smile.amazon.com. Then head over to the Wish List. Once you chosen an item to contribute, you can have it sent directly to the school. Please include a gift note so we know who to thank for the donation!

The Yearbook Committee is starting to collect photos for the yearbook. This year, we are using Shutterfly Share Sites to collect and manage our photos.
Shutterfly makes it so simple to upload photos and even has an app that makes it even easier. To upload photos, please go to: bearvalleyyearbook.shutterfly.com to get started. You will have to login with an existing Shutterfly account, or signup for an account. It will then ask if you would like to request permission to join the site. This is a one-time step to keep the photos private. Once your access has been verified, you may login and start uploading!.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join the yearbook committee or if you have any questions!
