There will be sponsorship opportunities for individuals and businesses which will include a Meet & Greet with the Artists.

BGA Parent Association
What is the role of the Battle Ground Academy Parent Association?
The Battle Ground Academy Parent Association’s (PA) role is to promote the School through organized efforts and activities of the parent body, and to provide support for the advancement of the total school, its students, faculty, and parents.

The Parent Association organizes numerous activities including parent and student socials, Denim & Diamonds (Auction and Entertainment Social), faculty appreciation luncheons, a magazine sale, as well as by assisting faculty with drama performances and coaches with athletic banquets and much more. There is something and some place for everyone to become actively involved which provides a fun experience for the parents to get to know one another as part of BGA’s community.

How do I become a member?
If you have a child currently enrolled at BGA, you already are! Membership in the BGA Parent Association includes all parents of BGA students.  

How do I get involved?
Volunteer Form will be included in your summer packet, arriving in early July.  Fill out and return the volunteer form with your other BGA forms.  You will be contacted by a parent serving as the Chairperson of that particular committee. For a more detailed description of each volunteer opportunity, click on the ABC’s of Volunteering at BGA link.

How does the BGA Parent Association operate?
The Board of the Parent Association is selected by nomination, reviewed by a nominating committee and then voted on by the Parent Association Board, to serve the term designated for each office or chairmanship.  BGA provides a list of needs each year. The parents assist in meeting these needs by providing manpower for various programs, as well as leading various fund-raisers. 
Click the 2016-2017 
Organizational Chart link below to view the many areas in which parents lend a hand to make BGA a great school while getting to know each other and socialize.

What is the difference in the BGA Fund and other fundraisers?  
Every dollar counts when donating to the BGA Fund and BGA is most appreciative of all donors.  These monies help provide extra-curricular areas of the school including athletics, visual arts, performing arts, student club activities, and enrichment programs for all students.  

The fundraising events proceeds benefit school dances, student and parent socials, playground equipment, student leadership retreats, and other celebrations and recognitions for our students.  The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) meets with the division heads, who have met with the department heads, to determine the School's greatest needs and desires.  The CFO then creates a list comprised of items of support for all areas of BGA including arts, academics, athletics, classroom, faculty and other needs as determined by the faculty and administration.  At the end of the academic year, the CFO presents a "wish list" to the Executive Board of the Parent Association from which to vote on how they would like to spend the monies raised.
