The BMES PTA Yearbook Committee is working hard to put together the 2023-24 Yearbook, which features the friends, fun and experiences your children have had throughout this school year. This is a wonderful keepsake of their days at Barlow Mountain Elementary and is sure to be a treasure your children will cherish for years to come. As such, we recommend ordering one yearbook PER CHILD.

 

As yearbooks need to be ordered and paid for months in advance of their distribution, we encourage you to order them now. The books will be distributed via homerooms in June before the last day of school, so the kids can sign them at their end of year parties. Please note that yearbook orders can only be made on our website.

 

Orders MUST be placed by March 4th. ORDER NOW! No late orders will be accepted.

 

The button below will take you to your "My Forms/Events" page. You will see the option to purchase a yearbook for your child(ren) on that page under "New Forms".

Community Service Opportunity

 

Pre-K through 2nd Grade Families Needed!

 

 

   

For over ten years, the BMES PTA has been proud to coordinate a monthly service
opportunity making bagged lunches for the Dorothy Day Hospitality House in Danbury.
Dorothy Day is a private, non-profit organization that provides essential community
services, including food and shelter, to local residents. We invite our generous
community to support this service project by volunteering to make sandwiches and
assemble lunch bags before school in the Teachers’ Lounge.

 


Each month, we need:


• 10 parent & child volunteer teams to make sandwiches before school from
8:20-8:45AM in the Teachers’ Lounge (parent must attend; no drop-offs please)
• Donations of food and supplies

 

Volunteer Sign Up
 

 

Your participation will help the BMES PTA continue this important community service. Thank you!

PTA Back-to-School Registration

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year and the BMES PTA website!

 

It's only by creating an account that you can view all information on the BMES PTA website. By creating an account, you will also receive weekly and special E-Blasts.  All users must update their account information every year. Existing users, please sign in to your account and update your family information.

Teacher assignments will be available through PowerSchool on August 21st by 12pm. Once teachers are assigned, please access the Family Information Form and add your child's teacher. This is an important step! This is how Classroom Volunteer Coordinators will know which class your child is in, so that they can set up a contact list for all communications during the year.
