Welcome to the Beach Community Union!


The Beach School PTA has changed its name to Beach Community Union (BCU). WELCOME! The BCU is a group that works to connect, advocate and fundraise for the whole school. It’s a caregiver led group that creates community and advances the needs of everyone at Beach. The BCU is committed to making impactful changes with your support, advice and guidance.  


Learn more about our approved budget for the 2022-2023 school year


Make a one-time or monthly donation to the BCU.


Donations support various school events, student and family needs, including (but not limited to): SUN School partnership, programming and after school enrichment program (not child care), the Beach Family Fund, teacher mini-grants, and field trips.



Please join us on March 14 from 5:30-7pm at the school auditorium for the second BCU Community Meeting. Childcare and pizza will be provided. Get an update on Beach Community Union activities, and connect with other families. (Masks encouraged.)



Mark your calendars, the Beach Auction is coming up on April 29! Your help is needed in sending emails to businesses over the next few months to request donations. It only takes a few minutes of your time, and you can help whenever it works for your schedule by simply sending emails. Help Beach, and meet local business owners! Please contact Amara Callahan at if you are able to support this effort.



Our beloved Beach teachers are headed into contract negotiations this year. Please take a moment to talk to your kids' teachers about what issues matter most to them and how you can support them. For more general information about what is being bargained for this year you can check out the teacher union page here and sign up here to share your areas of concern and receive emails as a community member. Beach teachers: we see you, we respect you and we want the very best for you.



  • Monday, February 6 from 4-8 pm: Panera Bread Restaurant Night. Use code FUND4U online or at the cafe kiosk at the Jantzen Beach Panera for 20% to be donated to BCU.
  • Wednesday, April 19 from 5-9 pm: Chipotle Restaurant Night. Order online using the code N8N3P3C at the NE Weidler Chipotle for 33% to be donated to BCU.


A big huge thank you to everyone taking part in Beach’s Bottle Drop program! To date we’ve raised over $1,300 for our BCU! Those dollars will go right back into our school community, for things like Beach Connects Events and the Beach Family Fund. It's never too late to start collecting your bottle deposits - stop by the office entrance to pick up a blue bag. Just drop it off when it’s full, and we’ll take care of the rest!




Volunteer opportunities are posted to the Support the BCU page, HERE.





The new BCU crew is excited for this school year. We are still getting organized, and plan to follow up with more opportunities for you to get involved and plans for multiple community events throughout the year. 


Please share your ideas with us on this form.

Thank you for your commitment to Beach School!
