Introducing the Bayview Glen Parent Association 2017/2018

Parent Association Executives, Convenors and Shop Management

The Bayview Glen Parent Guild is excited to announce its new name: The Bayview Glen Parent Association (BVGPA)! Like before, all parents and guardians are automatically members of the association. Our name, along with our mission statement, has changed to better reflect the warm and collaborative nature of our parent community. We hope to encourage more parents to volunteer and participate in our community events throughout the year. Please visit the BVG Parents link on the school’s website for information on volunteer opportunities for the school year. Announcements will also be made on the Parent Association page of the BVG newsletter. Keep up with the latest BVGPA information by liking our Facebook page or following us on Twitter.

Who we are
All parents and guardians of current students at Bayview Glen are a part of the Bayview Glen Parent Association (BVGPA).
