Barkstall Elementary PTA



Book Fair Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers are needed for the last book fair of the year.  You can sign up for just a couple of hours, and it will be a big help!  See available times here:


Franklin Open House

We invite you to attend an open house at Franklin STEAM Academy.  Franklin is the middle school that Barkstall feeds into, and this is a great opportunity to tour the school and talk with staff members.  The open house is on April 18th, from 6:30pm to 8pm, at Franklin.  Details can be found on this flyer.

Parent’s Night Out

Parent’s Night Out is THIS Friday, February 2nd from 7-10pm at Jupiter’s at the Crossing. Any donation to the PTA is your admission, however, with a $20 donation you will receive a ticket for a free drink. There will be 4 baskets raffled off at the end of the evening: Mom’s Basket, Dad’s Basket, Family Basket, and a Couple’s Basket. Raffle tickets will be $4/1, $10/3, or an arms length for $20. Cash or check accepted. The PTA will provide light snacks, but other food will be available for purchase if you choose. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for sneak peeks of our awesome donors.

PTA General Meeting – 12/5

Please join us for our last PTA General Meeting of 2017!!! 

Tuesday, December 5th, 7-9pm

Jupiters at the Crossing

We will have a quick and informal Barkstall PTA meeting at 7pm followed by time to visit with other Barkstall families and celebrate 2017 coming to a close.  We reserved tables downstairs so if you would like to bring your children they can feel free to run around and play games in that area. Please plan on purchasing your own food, drinks and tokens for the games. Jupiters will have a special that night where any large pizza ordered for dine in would be half off. Please RSVP to if you plan to attend so we can have enough seating. Hope to see you there!
