BOOKS & COCOA
Support the Book Fair! Stop into this event to read with your kiddos and warm up your tummy with a delicious hot cocoa bar! We will be having this event inside the school to make sure you are comfy since it will likely be cold outside! Please register for this event so we can make sure we fill the cocoa bar full with enough marshmallows, chocolate sticks, sprinkles, candy canes & more!
ROOM PARENT MINGLE
All of you Room Parents get ready for a fun and joy-filled mingle in the Library this year! This is where you will go to meet your room parent classroom team and plan your parties & events for your child's classroom. We promise to have a delicious treat ready for you when you arrive!

Come learn about different kids of art and even try your hand at it yourself! Art Night will have a variety of artists demonstrating their methods of creating art. We will also have art stations where you can try it on your own! Make sure to register for the art station of your choice by the deadline so we can purchase an art kit for you!
We are very excited to introduce another new event this year! Bates PTA will be hosting a holiday store for Bates Elementary. Each child will be given tokens to purchase gifts for their family members at this event. We love the spirit of giving that this event brings.
CHRISTMAS TREE JUBILEE
This is an annual event held in Weber County. It is not hosted by Bates PTA, but it is an amazing event where the proceeds are donated to help in Weber County. Bates PTA donates a tree or basket for this event. For more information click here.
SOME OF THIS YEAR'S EVENTS
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT

You can also learn all about the events coming up for this school year & buy your school shirts. See you there!
BOO HOO BREAKFAST
We know how hard it can be for the Kindergarten parents to let go of the little ones, and that is why we are having a Boo Hoo Breakfast to fill your tummy and your heart with joy again! Come have some "blue" themed breakfast after dropping off your little one for Kindergarten. Just breathe & repeat after me..."I can do this..." RSVP here.
Calling all Rocket Scientists! We are so excited to announce a STEM Night at Bates! Come learn to make a rocket, see elephant toothpaste erupt like a volcano, participate in amazing experiments & labs...see things you've never seen before and learn all about SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING & MATHEMATICS! You'll do this & SO much more when you register for STEM Night!
The theme of Field Day has not yet been finalized, but I CAN tell you it will be EPIC! Definitely full of fun and imagination. Some activities on the table right now are foam machine, face painting, animal balloons, water balloons, sprinklers and more. We might even be sending out a survey for parents and kids to VOTE on which activities sound the best to them!
Oh, the amazing teachers! One week out of the year is not enough to say thank you, but we sure are going to make it one incredible week! This is a fun week where the kids can participate and show their thanks for their teachers as well. Let's show the teachers some love & let them know how special we think they are!
This year the theme for Reflections is Heroes Around Us. We are so excited to help you all get involved with this art event this year. Entries collected at Bates on October 17th, 18th & 19th before and after school. We will be visiting each class to explain the process & sending home plenty of information so you don't miss the submission deadlines.
Get ready for a rainbow of fun! This year we decided to try a new kind of fundraiser. We are hosting a Color Run instead of the Fun Run. Get ready for a colorful family event! This is going to be an afterschool activity so we can include as many family members as possible in the fun. We are so excited about this new event and we hope you will support it!
