The Starry Night Auction raises over $50,000 for BAM to support all of the programs that help BAM students to thrive––arts enrichment, PE, science, gardening, math & literacy support, as well as library replenishment and technology upgrades. Join us for a night of food, drink, community, and fundraising for BAM!
Ready. Set. Read! The BAM Readathon is a great way to encourage our students to develop a lifelong love of reading while raising money to support our school. BAM PTA fundraisers help support programs for our students, supplies for our teachers, and community building initiatives. Students will read as much as they can for 14 days and keep track of how many total minutes they read (for younger students being read to counts). Students will then collect pledges and submit pledge forms to their teacher or the box in the main office. You can download the pledge form pledge form here (please make checks payable to Berkeley Arts Magnet PTA, not BAM PTA). You can also donate online using the button below.
It is time again for the BAM Runathon! Please tell your student to get ready to run from May 16–19! This fundraiser is a healthy activity while raising money for our school. It continues to be a challenging year for fundraising, and this is the last one for the school year. This is a fun way for our students to help their school while being outside and exercising.
Please see the pledge form here (please make checks payable to Berkeley Arts Magnet PTA, not BAM PTA). You can also donate online using the button below.
We will also be looking for volunteers for that week.
Please look out for more info from your room parent.
