The Nominating Committee Has A Mission!

That mission is to talk with anyone who self-nominates or accepts a nomination to serve in one of Ben Rush PTAs elected positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, or Treasurer.  If you know someone (including yourself!) who believes in the purposes of PTA to advocate for the well being of all our students, and can commit to a 1 year term for the duties of the role then we welcome you to submit a nomination.  If you have any questions please email

Yearbooks Are Coming!

We’ve been informed by our yearbook vendor that their production has been delayed due to COVID-19 work restrictions, but they are doing everything they can to send yearbooks as quickly as possible.  If you did not have a chance to order a yearbook don’t worry!  We’ve ordered extra and will be prepared to arrange pickup and/or delivery safely.  If you have any questions please email

Thank You for Appreciating Our Teachers

We thank all families who expressed their appreciation to teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation.  The PTA hosted a Flipgrid to share videos from the students and provided an Amazon gift card as a token of thanks to all staff members.  We received many messages of thanks and the videos were a great joy to see.  We will leave the Flipgrid up for others to continue to submit videos, if you’d like to participate please follow the following directions.

Flipgrid access instructions
Please visit this Flipgrid board and choose the “Log in with Microsoft” option to login option to authenticate with your student’s “s-” email address “”. This is to ensure only our students and school staff will have access to the Flipgrid.  Click on the “Topics” link on the right to view all boards by grade, and we would love for students to leave a message for our Specialist teachers and other school staff.  Students will be able to record a 15 second video message of appreciation, their name, and type a short message.  If you have any trouble accessing the board email
