Parent Knights (PTA)

As your student begins school, you too will begin a new and exciting experience at Bergan as well.  One way to continue to be involved is to be a part of the Parent Knights Association.  There is no fee to join!  Everyone who has a student at Bergan is part of this organization.

We encourage you to be active in your school.  Bergan Spirit begins with enthusiastic families who are willing to share their time and talents with others.

Elementary Parent Knights is your parent organization for preschool, pre-k, and elementary parents.  Our mission is to support the students and teachers of Bergan Elementary.

We encourage you to attend our monthly meetings on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Elementary Library.  Free childcare is provided in the gym.
