The Binks Forest Elementary School PTA recently received four awards at the Palm Beach County Council of PTA/PTSA awards dinner on Friday, May 20 at the Westchester Country Club in Boynton Beach.
The awards included PTA of the Year, which Binks Forest also received for the 2014-15 school year. Other awards were the President’s Award for Binks Forest PTA President and Wellington Councilwoman Tanya Siskind; School Administration of the Year, recognizing the school’s staff for its support of the PTA’s mission and purpose; and the Spotlight Award, for a video documenting the Binks Forest PTA’s activities throughout the school year. The video was created by Allison Robbert, a graduate of Binks Forest who now attends the Bak Middle School of the Arts.
“We are very honored that the Binks PTA is the recipient of the PTA of the Year award for the second year in a row,” Siskind said. “The Binks PTA board works very hard to make sure the students and staff have the resources they need to be successful each year. We are also very excited to receive the Spotlight Award for the first time. Allison Robbert did a great job, and we can’t thank her enough.”
