About the PTO

The Bell-Graham Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (“PTO”) is an all-volunteer, parent-run, non-profit organization committed to enhancing and enriching the education of our children and fostering a sense of community within our school. We seek to promote and encourage communication and close relationships between parents, guardians, teachers and administration.  The heart of our mission is a commitment to enrich our children's educational, social and developmental experiences. We strive to do this by:

 

  • Providing assemblies and field trips spanning all grade levels.

  • Facilitating communication and supporting our school and students through PTO volunteers serving as event chairs and head room parents.

  • Hosting monthly PTO meetings.

  • Organizing numerous fundraising activities and school events.

  • Offering our membership a directory of students and families.

  • Coordinating volunteers for school events and providing supplemental supplies and resources.

  • Hosting monthly faculty/staff appreciation events throughout the school year.
     

Our annual budget is raised solely through event fundraisers and membership dues. We urge all families with children attending Bell-Graham to join as PTO members each school year. Each membership is $25 and helps augment our children’s school experience and supports our educators in fulfilling their vision.

 

Parent involvement is a fundamental part of what makes a school community rich and robust. We take great pride in the strength of our PTO and encourage you to learn more about our events and get involved in any of the many volunteer opportunities that work with your interests and schedule.
