Bancroft has had an active Parent Teacher Association for many years. The PTA’s fundraising projects include a holiday tree sale on the school grounds. In past years, the PTA has raised money for air conditioning in all classrooms; an audio system and sound proofing in the auditorium; rugs for classrooms; and furniture for the art room. PTA members were also instrumental in winning funding for the new playground built in 2010 and in getting more resources for our school’s bilingual program. In 2010-2011 we purchased more Spanish books for the library. In 2014, Bancroft transitioned from a PTA to a PTO (Parent Teacher Organization). Since that time, the Bancroft PTO has increased it's fundraising and community-building success with many annual events such as a Mount Pleasant House and Garden Tour, an Art Auction, and the yearly Christmas Tree Sale. Funds raised are used regularly to support field trips, fund afterschool clubs, bring performers to the school, and much more.
