Together, We Make the Difference!

As 2020 comes to end, there’s one last request we have for the year… please donate to the PTSA! We pay it forward: a portion of the money raised this school year provides for programs next year. We are only 28% to our goal to fund our programs for next school year (2021-2022).

Our donations support the hiring of General School Assistants (GSAs) who support teachers and students, keeping our student-to-staff ratio as low as possible.

PTSA dollars also fund Curriculum Enhancement opportunities to extend the school curriculum by bringing in outside experts and special events, and - when we return in person! - field trips and on-site visits. Opportunities range from programs like Passport Club and Math Challenges, to visits from children's book authors, the ever popular Toy Maker and local science museums and nature organizations.

Please share with your family, friends, coworkers and neighbors. Please take advantage of any corporate matching programs available to you. Every dollar helps us in our goal to provide exemplary education and experiences to our children.

Thank you for your generosity and support. Donate now at!

Student Tutoring Available

Student Tutoring Available
Venture Academy is an Interlake club focused on tutoring BSD elementary and middle school kids. We are interested in providing tutoring to your school’s students' afterschool times, and possibly asynchronous time. We are aware that many students often have trouble paying attention in school due to the remote environment, and we want to offer homework help and sessions to keep kids accountable for doing their work.
