Bartram Springs PTA is looking for sponsors! – The Bartram Springs Elementary PTA is looking for Business Partners to sponsor a variety of events during the 2018-2019 school year. We provide luncheons for the teachers, movie night for families, and we have a big spring event being planned, where businesses will be able to set up tents and meet our awesome students and their family! The PTA are also collecting donations to go towards putting shade and bleachers out on our track. Currently there is no shade, and very minimal seating. With many classes spending time outside and the events that we host outdoors at the school, we have decided this is our main focus for the 2018-2019 school year.
