The Banta PFA meets on the second Wednesday of every month at 6:00 PM in the Banta School Library. The organization is open to all interested in becoming actively involved with our school. The PFA has held a major fundraiser for the past 20 years known as the Banta Hay Day. This fundraiser helps provide extras and sometimes much needed things for our students and school. The PFA is always seeking new and fresh ideas. We welcome all to come and explore the opportunities that we have to offer our students and school.
