PTO SPRING FUNDRAISER NEWS
The Invest in Your Best@BMS campaign will begin On February 4th and end on April 8th. We plan to have a thermometer displayed by grade level to show participation and one in the front of the school to show the dollar amount raised. No donation is too small! The grade level that has 100% participation will be incentivized with a dance, plus each student that gives will receive a free Invest bracelet. Any student that gives $50 or more will receive a free t-shirt, which is SSA approved.
We will host a culminating activity/school showcase on the evening of April 18th. This will be an opportunity to celebrate the success of the fundraiser and display the great talent of the students and staff of BMS. All donations should be in an envelope and put in the blue donation box outside of the owl store. The donation sheet can be downloaded below.
We encourage students to ask parents, friends and grandparents to donate. Remember this fundraiser replaces our candy bar sale. As always, all funds raised by the BMS PTO will be used for the students and staff at Bellevue Middle School. Thanks, in advance for your support of BMS. We are trying to set up the option of making online payments,
but we DO have CashApp: $PTOBMS.
Thank you in advance for all of your support!!
The main mission of the Bellevue Middle PTO is to raise money to support the students, teachers and staff of our school. In the last few years, we've been able to provide Promethean interactive white boards for all classrooms, a mobile cart with 16 iPads, new basketball and football uniforms, significant funds toward cheerleading uniforms and competition fees, new wrestling singlets, headphones with microphones for the Read 180 program, 15 Vernier LabPros for science including updated technology and ongoing training for all the teachers, supplies for International Day activities, facilitating band and strings activities, landscaping to beautify our school, prizes for students, inventory for the Owl Store, gifts for teachers, teacher and staff appreciation luncheons, a DJ and security for the 8th grade dance and more! Every penny we raise goes right back to our school.
