Meetings

If you want to know everything the PTO is doing and share your ideas, come to our PTO meetings on the first Monday of the month at 6:30 PM. We try to keep them to under an hour, and kids are always welcome at our in-person meetings. For the 2020-2021 school year, we currently have meetings planned for September, November, January, and May.

Facebook Group

Joining our Facebook group is the best way to keep up-to-date on everything going on in the PTO. It’s also a great place to ask about homework or field trip details, get a copy of that flyer your kid lost on the way home, or share the cool new program your friend’s school is doing. Most of all, you can connect with other Bibich parents, which is something we all probably need more than ever.

Volunteering

Interested in becoming a member of the PTO? Good news, you already are! All Bibich parents are automatically part of the PTO, and unlike other schools, we don’t charge any dues to participate. Best of all, you don’t need to be crafty or have loads of free time during the day to help out. No matter your skill set or availability, we have volunteer opportunities for you! 

We encourage all parents to fill out our Volunteer Form so we can match you with the programs that best fit you.

About the PTO

Bibich’s Parent Teacher Organization strives to support, strengthen, and encourage the education of our children by fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers.  Our primary objective is to provide volunteers and financial support to enhance the educational environment of our children.

The key to a successful PTO is the involvement of our entire school community.  For many, it may be supporting our fundraisers, being a head room parent or volunteering time at an activity or event.  For others, it might be chairing an activity or serving on the PTO Executive Board.  Some of the activities and events we are involved with require time, money and lots of effort.  There are so many ways to become involved in the PTO and we need your help!
