Welcome to the new Borel PTA Board members. Thanks for all you do to make the PTA run smoothly and effectively to maximize the reach and impact of our programs and fundraising efforts at Borel. 

Please join us for the first PTA General meeting of the school year, which will be Aug 29, 2023 at 7pm in the school library.  Learn more about what the PTA is up to, have your voice be heard on important issues like the annual budget vote and the election of one board member, and find out ways you can make an impact in our community by volunteering in a variety of small and larger roles!  Here is the agenda for our first meeting!

Our first ELAC Meeting will be Thursday Sep 21, 2023 from 9:30am - 10:30am in the library.


Thanks to the generosity of the Borel Community, we've been able to offer a wide range of resources, programs, and events that enrich our students' academic journey. From essential class and office supplies, administrative support staff, academic department support, student aid initiatives, recognition awards, and many more programs and events, the impact of Borel Boosters is felt throughout our school community. Now, we invite you to join us in this meaningful endeavor by considering a donation to the Bobcat Boosters. By contributing to Borel Boosters, you not only invest in your child’s education, but also enhance the overall educational experience for every student at Borel.
