    Upon arrival, please report to the school's auditorium where you and your child(ren) will meet our wonderful Big Tree kindergarten teachers and Principal, Mrs. Bermingham.

  • Please consider joining the Big Tree PTA!

    It's never too late to join the Big Tree PTA! When you join the PTA, please remember that doesn't mean you are required to attend the meetings or must volunteer.  It's a much larger cause. You are becoming a member to support all that the New York State PTA is working on for our children.  To learn more about what the New York State PTA is doing for our children, please go to You will be AMAZED at all of their work on behalf of OUR children!

    Reasons to become a Big Tree Elementary PTA Member:

    • The benefit to growing our school's membership is so that the NYS PTA can continue their work on behalf of OUR children and youth;
    • The more members we have, the larger our "voice" is when fighting for what the NYS PTA is advocating for.


    Issues Being Addressed by NYS PTA:

    • The NYS PTA from across the state are working with educators to review education standards for our students;
    • The NYS PTA's Pick-a-Reading-Partner Program cements the bond between home and school to encourage our children's love of reading.
