PTO

Welcome to Buckeye Valley Middle School PTO.  PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, made up of parents and teachers working together to help support and enrich the students experience through funding and volunteering. Anyone is welcome to participate, just come to a meeting or email Paula Blosser, at  cblosser001@columbus.rr.com for more information.  We would love to hear your ideas!

The PTO is proud to sponsor the school dances, field trips, teacher reimbursements, special assemblies, student support fund and much more.  Your help is always appreciated during special events and during our Fall & Spring fundraisers.  Please consider signing up and donating a little of your time.

BVMS PTO Non-Fundraiser

As a PTO we know your time is valuable and we want to try something new this year. We are sick of fundraising and think you are too! Unfortunately, we still need money to operate.  

PTO covers:

  • 5th-grade busing to BizTown

  • 6th-grade camp t-shirts

  • 7th-grade busing to Columbus Zoo

  • 7th-grade Math in the Real World

  • 8th-grade Breakfast/Rewards

  • Middle School Science Fair awards

  • Middle School Play/Musical/Talent Show

  • Classroom needs for teachers

  • Student recognition awards

  • Student/Family support fund

  • Scholarship for trips

  • Money to Principal’s fund for student recognition

  • School Dances

  • And many more

 

This year we want to try to get rid of typical fundraisers all together. If everyone in the school donated $20 for each student we would reach our goal of the $13,000 a year we need to operate. If everyone could donate $20 or more for each student to help us reach our goal we could do away with fundraisers entirely at the middle school level. We would still do school dances and the color run in the spring.  

As a thank you for your  $20 donation you will receive a Barons car magnet!

Please send your contribution in addressed to PTO by Nov 28th.
