Bedson Parent's Association

 

The WMEMS Parent Association at Bedson would like to extend an invitation to those families who have not yet attended a PA meeting or participated in helping at a fundraising event to give it a try! You'll feel connected to the WMEMS family, make new friends and gain insight into the goings on at the WMEMS Bedson campus.

We welcome you to participate!

The purpose of the WMEMS Bedson Parent Association is to:
