Message from the President
Welcome Back Bulldogs!
This upcoming school year is going to be one of the PTO's biggest and most amazing years yet! Our new Board members and volunteers have been very busy over the summer getting assemblies scheduled and our Fall events ready to go. Now it's time to put the wheels in motion. We are bringing in 2 new assemblies this year. 'Visions in Motion' will start the school year off and 'Prismatic Magic Lasers' will help the students learn more about Black History in February. One of the programs we are bringing back after a short absence is the BMX Stunt Show, 'Perfection on Wheels'. The students will be on the edge of their seats watching this one! Two past favorites, Kit's Interactive and the Brain Wash Game Show, will be returning for a few laughs and a few facts.
The 2017-2018 Executive Board has gifted the school a brand new sound system for the Cafetorium and a water refill station that can be used to refill reusable water bottles to help cut down on disposable-plastic.
The Board is extremely excited to announce the creation of the Bulldog Monthly, our electronic newsletter that will be filled with event dates, contact info, volunteer opportunities and more. We are also expanding our social media coverage and adding new pages and content to our website as well. We have an enthusiastic team that will be updating information as often as possible to help keep everyone on track and ahead of the game. Please look for us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
The PTO will continue to give financially support to our teachers and students. On average, we contribute $45,000+ EACH year to the following: teacher grants, school-wide events as well as different programs and assemblies. We will also maintain funding for all field trip transportation. We are delighted to host author visits to help bring books to life and Skype sessions with educators around the world. Our main goal is to keep advancing our children's active and curious minds.
We are proud, and very excited, to announce that we will be hosting the 20th Anniversary of Spring Fling on Friday, April 26, 2019! This is the one major fundraiser that the PTO hosts every year. We are able to financially support all that I have mentioned above because of our supportive families and generous Bedminster Community. The funds raised in this one evening will make it possible to continue our funding next year. All that we do is 'For The Kids'!!
I am excited and honored to be able to continue into my 3rd year on the Executive Board. I am also extremely lucky to be surrounded by our generous and amazing Bedminster Community as well as the kindness and dedication of our Bulldog families.
There is a lot to look forward to this year............. stay tuned.
