Welcome new and returning Bearkats! Please consider joining the Black Elementary PTO. The membership cost is $10 per family. This fee help support the many activities the PTO funds at Black Elementary. For example, last year the PTO purchased an entire new playground set and in the recent past, provided a large piece of equipment for the kindergarten playground. Additionally, the PTO funds 100% of all grade level field trips each year, which includes student admissions and bus transportation fees.
PTO membership will allow access to the online PTO directory. This is the only public access to classmates contact information for parties and playdates. Parents will be able to decide what contact information appears in the directory as well.
The party fees this year are the same as last year, which are $6 per child, with the exception of 5th graders where the cost is $25 per child. The fees cover the 2 annual class parties held at school. This year, we will have a Winter party in December and an End Of School Year party on the last day of school. For the the 5th graders, this fee also includes a special 5th grade day t-shirt, a memory book, and part of the cost of 5th grade day, which is an annual celebration for the 5th graders.
Membership to the PTO does not obligate you to volunteer, but it does keep you more informed and involved with your child's school and community!
