Beacon Park Cares
A Beacon Park School PTA Initiative
Mission Statement: We strive to give back to our local community and offer our students opportunities to make a difference.
In following with Standard 6 - “Collaborating with Community” of the National PTA, we will:
- Make sure partnership activities strengthen families and link to student learning.
- Sponsor days on which students go into the community to perform needed work or services.
This year we are partnering with Families Forward. Families Forward’s mission is “to help families in need achieve and maintain self-sufficiency through housing, food, counseling, education, and other support services.”
