Greeting Banneker Kinship Families,

It is our hope you had a safe and pleasant summer. It has been an amazing year for our school.  To all our new kinship PTA families and returning families; “We Welcome You!” Our BBACD Kinship PTA Association truly hopes that we will continue to foster positive, strong bonds between scholars, parents, teachers and administration. With our new Executive Board, we have planned some great events, with parent workshops and other activities for the whole school community. We strongly encourage you to join us at our monthly meetings and activities. Stay in touch with us! You can reach us via email: or check on Facebook: Bbacd Pta.

Research has shown that when a parent stays actively involved in their child’s education, that child’s chance of success increases. We strive for only the best for all our scholars. BBACD Kinship PTA advocate for all scholars to succeed. We need each parent to show up and let our scholars know their education matters, their success matters; moreover their life matters.  On behalf of BBACD Kinship PTA Executive Board 2018-2019, we are looking forward to meeting each and everyone of you! Our goals are to continue to build on our membership, increase two-way communication, strengthen ties to the community and increase fundraising. We are humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve each one of you. Wishing you and your family a fantastic school year!
