Welcome to the Amy Beverland Family Association! Did you know all parents and caregivers of current students are members of the ABFA? There is no time commitment required and we encourage you to participate, and volunteer based on what your schedule will allow. There is no cost nor formal process to joining – just help when you can, come meet new people and have FUN!
The ABFA is the Parent-Teacher Organization for Amy Beverland. The purpose of the Amy Beverland Family Association is to promote cooperation and understanding between parents, students, and faculty at Amy Beverland Elementary School. This mission is achieved through exchanging ideas, experiences, information and other matters of mutual interest and concern, and to support and improve the school environment through positive actions.
The ABFA is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. As such, the ABFA qualifies as an exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The ABFA is comprised of an executive board along with several standing committees.
The Amy Beverland Dads’ Club is the largest and longest standing committee within the ABFA. The Dads’ Club hosts a variety of different events for the students, families, and staff of Amy Beverland. The Dads’ Club operates with their own independent budget, holds regular monthly meetings, and shares a mutual interest of supporting the students, families, and staff of Amy Beverland.
We make fundraising fun! Throughout the year, the ABFA hosts several family-friendly and dine-to-donate events that raise money for our school, including skate parties, family fun night, pancake breakfast, and our annual Susan Jordan golf outing. These are a wonderful way to meet other families! Click here to see our events calendar.
The ABFA and Dads’ Club meet for one hour per month in the Susan Jordan Media Center. During the ABFA meetings a school update will be provided from Principal Pennington, the ABFA officers will report out on upcoming activities and needs, including a financial update from the Treasurer. We encourage you to join us for any or all meetings that fit your schedule! Click here to view upcoming meeting dates.

Stay Connected with ParentSquare
MSD of Lawrence Township uses ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. We encourage parents to access their accounts so they can download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.
We promise to only send you information closely related to school. You can opt-out at anytime. Contact your child's school for more information about opting-out from our communications.
After the first two weeks of school, we welcome your visit to your child's classroom. Pre-arranged classroom visits by parents are encouraged and welcomed.
We also welcome parents to come and eat lunch with their student in the All Star Cafe. Parents may either eat hot lunch from the cafeteria or bring a sack lunch from home. Please do not bring in food from a restaurant for you and your child.
All visitors should sign in at the office and wear a guest or volunteer badge.
For your child's safety and education, we cannot allow parents to just walk into the classroom unexpectedly. Thank you for your support in providing a safe environment for our children.
All visitors to school buildings are required to complete a SafeSolutions background check upon entry.
- All visitors must report to the school office to provide identification, sign in, and receive a visitor’s badge before entering the school.

- Volunteers are welcomed and appreciated. A wide variety of opportunities are available at your child’s school. Please check with your child’s school or teacher to learn more about the volunteering opportunities.
