The PTA sponsors a number of programs for the school. The money raised by the PTA is what pays for technology, playground equipment, assemblies, clubs, dances, and classroom funds for the teachers. The school's budget and fees only cover operating expenses.

In order to pay for all of these additional programs and benefits to students and families, the PTA has two traditional fundraisers, each year. The Boosterthon Fun Run
in the fall and the BES Carnival in the spring.
All other funds come from Spirit Wear sales, Santa's Workhop, and funds available from corporate programs.  

Register your Kroger card or your Target card and BES will automatically get a percentage of what you spend on your shopping trip!  If you frequently shop at, please sign up for AmazonSmile and designate BES as your charity to support.  Please also continue to save your Box Tops and Labels for Education.  We get 10 cents for every Box Top and Campbell's gives us points for the labels that we use to buy educational resources and equipment!
