BJM Families Together

Our Mission:


As parents, teachers, staff, students, and community members, we come together to support the students of BJM Elementary School. 


About BJM Families Together

BJMFT is an umbrella organization that includes all of us. Under this umbrella we have committees for Events, Action Groups, Fundraising, Finance, and more. The core goal is to come together as parents, caregivers, teachers and staff to help support our BJM scholars.

Get Involved



Join us for BJM Family Events to connect, get to know each other, and support our school!




Our Committees

Many hands make light work! If you would like to help with one of our committees listed below, please fill out our volunteer registration form. 



Our Communications Committee is responsible for maintaining our website, sending out monthly newsletters, creating posters to promote events, and more. We are looking for volunteers who have skills in writing, editing, design, photography, public relations, poster-making, and anything else you'd like to bring to the table. 


Finance & Fundraising

Our finance and fundraising committee helps our Treasurer maintain our budget, organize our finances, and generate revenue for our organization. Our funds help support the BJM basketball teams, class trips, provide snacks, expand our playground equipment, and more. 


Action Group

Our Action Group committee works with the principal for specific school-wide action: increasing attendance, school pride, free play spaces, and more. 



We hold BJM Family Events at the school each month of the school year. These events are designed to bring BJM families together to celebrate our school and build community. We always need help with the organization, set-up, and clean-up at events. 


Multicultural Night 

The Millicent Clarke-Maynard Multicultural Dinner and Annual Fundraiser is held annually in May, and is our feature event of the school year. It is a celebration of our diverse families at BJM, and includes food, music, dance, a silent auction, and more. We need many hands to help organize, gather donations, and more. 



The Nominating Committee identifies people in the community that can serve as officers, can chair different committees, and provide support for our organization in other ways. 



The Auditing Committee conducts a yearly audit of the Treasurer and Finance Committee; must not be members of the Finance Committee. 



Join us in-person or send us a message to learn more about our programs, our community, and how you can get involved. 


Friday Coffee Hour

Every Friday during the school year, we get together in the BJM Family Room for coffee and treats from 7:45-8:30 a.m. This is an informal time to chat and check in with no agenda. Stop by & say hi!
