Join the PTA! 


The BMES PTA is a partnership between parents and teachers who share a common goal to enrich student programs within the BMES Community. Your PTA membership entitles you to vote at PTA meetings and have access to the online Student Directory.




We are no longer distributing printed directories to members, although they may be purchased for $5 each. You do not need to be a member to be included in the Directory, but only PTA members will receive access to it.

The BMES PTA Yearbook Committee will be working hard to put together the 2018-2019 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. 


Yearbooks need to be ordered and paid for months in advance of their distribution, so we encourage you to order them NOW. The books will be distributed via homerooms in June before the last day of school.

Productions for Young People (PYP) is a parent- and PTA-driven organization that brings professional arts performances to our town's Elementary and Middle School children. Please consider making a donation to support a new season of performances.
