Basehor Bluejay Team Parent Information
Does my child’s school have a parent/teacher group? How can I become more involved in my child’s school?
What is this BBT I keep hearing about? If your child started Kindergarten in August or you just moved into the neighborhood, let us introduce ourselves! We are the Basehor Bluejay Team, also known as BBT. BBT is the parent and school staff group which supports Basehor-Linwood Elementary School (BES) and Basehor Intermediate School (BIS). BBT sponsors many activities throughout each school year such as teacher luncheons, class field trips, Red Ribbon Week, the annual talent show, educational assemblies, an end of the school-year carnival and much more! BBT also makes many equipment and material purchases for each school building.
The money raised through BBT membership and fundraising efforts have helped purchase color printers, continuing ink supply, playground equipment, document cameras, board games, and back to school gifts for teachers and students. It is easy to get involved with your child’s school through BBT. Dues are $5.00 per family and all the money stays within the local organization (checks can be made payable to “BBT”).
In addition to being part of an active and meaningful organization, you will receive a student directory which is published yearly.
The Basehor Bluejay Team functions with an Executive Board (elected yearly), Committee Chairs (volunteer positions renewed yearly) and Members ($5.00 dues). Meetings are held monthly and all members are encouraged to attend.
Many volunteers are needed to help BBT remain a successful and vital part of the educational experience of BES and BIS students. There are many levels of involvement, so be a part of the team….the Basehor Bluejay TEAM!
