Parents, Teachers, Faith Warriors

We recognize parental involvement as a key factor to our success. Quite simply, we cannot accomplish everything we do without your help. Throughout the year, the Parent-Teachers-Faith Warriors will sponsor and support events that directly benefit and enrich the students of Bayshore Christian School.

What is Parents, Teachers, Faith Warriors (PTFW)?

All parents and/or guardians of children attending Bayshore Christian School, as well as, each member of the professional staff, are members of the PTFW and are encouraged to participate.

PTFW will sponsor and support events that directly benefit and enrich the students of Bayshore Christian School. Our success is dependent on your active involvement.

  • Active members of the PTFW consist of parents/guardians, teachers, and alumni who volunteer their time.
  • We are an independent organization, and we do not belong to any state or national affiliation.
  • We keep all funds that are raised by the PTFW for our school and are not required to contribute percentages to local, state, and/or national associations.
  • The PTFW works with the school to evaluate and prioritize allocation of funds raised.

The Bayshore Christian School's PTFW Mission is:

  • To develop avenues of hospitality and fellowship toward BCS faculty, the students, and parents/guardians
  • To improve and enhance the quality of our school
  • To be a positive public relations agency to our school community

    Fundraising

    Thank you for supporting the 2019 Fun Run: Warrior Games

    The students had a wonderful time running through the inflatable obstacle course, running through the relay races, and, of course, the after-party celebration. Make sure to check out our social media pages for videos and pictures of all the fun. 

    Thank you to all of our volunteers that made the Fun Run possible. We love seeing our families on campus! We still have donations coming in, but as of this morning, BCS has raised a little over $21,000! Way to go! 

    Congratulations to our fundraiser of the year, 6th grader, Jade Lopez. She raised $705!

    Does your company match donations? If so, we can help provide the necessary documentation for you to submit the request to match your dollars raised. Every dollar counts when you are supporting BCS. Without your support, none of this would have been possible. 

    On behalf of the faculty and staff at Bayshore Christian School, thank you for being an active member of our school community.

    Thank you, Fun Run sponsors!

    The Russel Family, Barksdale Catering, Patterson Freight, International Union Operation Engineers, The Boe Family, The Brandt Family, IMCS, Burgess Civil, Port Consolidated, Broley's Lawn Care, The Wilson Family, The Ortiz Family, Botanica, Santiago Therapy Center, Mr. Empanadas South Tampa, and Dr. Zimmer.
