The Poplar Bridge PTSA (Parent, Teacher, Student Association) is affiliated with the Bloomington PTSA Council, the Minnesota PTA, and the National PTA.  We are working together to enhance our children's lives. To download a membership form, click here.

The Poplar Bridge Elementary PTSA is a non-profit organization committed to enhancing our students’ lives. We promote community volunteerism and fundraise to provide programs not funded by the state or our taxes.

The  PTSA has arranged for childcare to be available during monthly meetings. Childcare is provided at no cost and will be lead by a member of the Kids' Safari team. Children need to be a minimum of preschool age and potty trained. Parents can drop their kids off at 6:25 p.m. and then join the meeting at 6:30 in the media center. Meetings and childcare will end at 7:30.

Fundraising projects

Welcome Back to School Carnival
This will take place on Friday, October 25 from 6:00pm-8:30pm. Let's get together and have some fun supporting our school! There will be games, prizes, activities, food, raffles, and more. In an effort to be eco-friendly, we seek donations of lightly-used stuffed animals and books, to be "recycled" for game prizes. 

STEAM Fundraising Night
This will take place on February 21 from 6:00pm-8:30pm. STEAM stands for Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics. Come see all the student S.T.E.A.M. project displays, and stay for bingo, food, and a silent auction.
