PFA - Parent Faculty Association
The Banta PFA/Community Meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of every month at 6:00 PM in the Banta School Library (a Zoom online meeting is also available). The organization is open to all interested in becoming actively involved with our school. Join us and find out what is happening at Banta Elementary School and share your ideas.    The PFA helps with fundraisers to  provide extras and sometimes much needed things for our students and school. The PFA is always seeking new and fresh ideas. We welcome all to come and explore the opportunities that we have to offer our students and school.

S.H.A.R.E.S. Program:  We are happy to announce that Banta School is now a part of the Save Mart Supermarkets S.H.A.R.E. program.  It is an electronic card that you use when making a purchase at Save Mart, FoodMaxx, Lucky or S-Mart.  Each time you use your assigned card, 3 % of all qualified purchases is automatically credited to Banta School. Just present the card to the cashier before you begin your transaction.  Your receipt will show the number of points earned for that transaction.  Banta School will receive a quarterly check reflecting the amount earned.  Cards were sent home with each student.  If you need more please contact the school office.
