WHO WE ARE
The PTO is an organization of parents and teachers who, through their commitment of time and resources, work to enhance the Bedminster school.
The Bedminster Township School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is an organization of parents and teachers who, through their commitment of time and resources, work to enhance the Bedminster Township School’s learning environment. We believe that only when students, parents and teachers work together can a child realize the exceptional education that is every parent’s dream and are thus committed to investing our time, energy and resources to further their education.
We aspire to maintain an engaged network of parents, teachers, school administrators and community organizations; to promote culturally diverse and enriching educational experiences for our students; to promote the emotional and physical well-being of children in the school, community and home; and to support our teachers, administration and school by funding innovative technology and resources.
The PTO is able to do its work through various means of fundraising, the most significant being our annual “Spring Fling”. This event is made possible by the support of the entire school community, and the generosity of numerous sponsors and donors throughout the communities of Bedminster, Far-Hills, Peapack& Gladstone, Bernardsville and beyond.
The PTO funded $75K worth of grade level programs, school assemblies, teacher grants, author visits, and staff training with NY Times Best Selling Author, Dave Burgess “Teach Like A Pirate” since 2016. In 2017, the PTO prioritized social and emotional learning and funded Melinda Jennis’s “Include Me” program through Pathways for Exceptional Children. In January of 2018, we will collaborate with Somerset Hills to sponsor speaker, Dr. Michael Bradley, “CRAZY-STRESSED: SAVING TODAY'S OVERWHELMED TEENS WITH LOVE, LAUGHTER, AND THE SCIENCE OF RESILIENCE”.We coordinate and financially support student programs including Theaterworks USA, Kit’s Interactive Theatre, Gym Geography, Lego and Robotics and Environmental Club, an author visit from Wendy Mass; provide grants both large and small to our teachers; provide all bus funding for field trips and educational learning activities including a trip to Broadway to see Phantom of the Opera; provide funding for the Drama Club spring musical; support BTS and BHS graduation; sponsor awards for 8th grade graduates; and host and provide volunteers for many school wide events including our Welcome Back Social, Back to School Nights, Halloween events, Kindergarten Registration and Staff Appreciation Day.
The PTO is an integral part of the children's experience at the Bedminster Township School. The Bedminster PTO is dedicated to enhancing the learning experience of our children while continually strengthening our community ties in meaningful ways.
