Welcome to the Bellbrook - Sugarcreek PTO
The Sugarcreek Parent Teacher Organization is a volunteer organization which maintains a close working relationship between parents, teachers/staff and students. It is our goal to enhance the educational experience by supporting the students and teaching staff through fundraising efforts to provide additional equipment, technology, educational resources, educational services and special projects in which statewide budget cuts have reduced and/or eliminated. A strong PTO is evidence of parental interest/support and does ensure a better school environment for our children. Meetings are held on the 2nd TUESDAY of every month at the Middle School. Childcare provided!!!
Welcome PTO Members
Did you know that by simply having your child in the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek School System you are already a member of the PTO? As a parent in this educational community, we share a common goal with our teachers - to ensure our children have the best, most effective and fun learning environment possible.
You Can Make a Difference - How Can You get INVOLVED and Support the PTO?
Volunteering and participating in the various fundraisers throughout the school year!!! Helping to support the Direct Donation Campaigns alone directly impact YOUR CHILD. Every bit of supports counts and helps our PTO purchase needed technology, educational materials, classroom supplies, field trips and more which have been reduced and/or eliminated due to budget cuts! All profits go to benefit our children and our award winning school district. The success of the Direct Donation Campaign can significantly reduce the amount of small fundraising activities throughout the school year. So, jump on board and let’s strive for 100% participation!!!
Our meetings this year will continue to be the 2nd Tuesday of every month (except December) at 7:00pm. We have decided to continue our meetings over zoom. The meeting attendance has been much higher over zoom.
September 14th, 2021; October 12th, 2021; November 9th, 2021; January 11th, 2022; February 8th, 2022; March 8th, 2022; April 12th, 2022; May 10th, 2022
We will have our Direct Donation Campaign again this year. It’s such a successful fundraiser! We will not have spirit wear again this year. Last year’s results showed us that we receive the same amount of monetary donations without spirit wear as we did when we had spirit wear.
We would like to have a Stock the Break Room event for all schools in the fall, as well as a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon for all schools in the spring. Please let us know if there are any restrictions this year that would prevent us from moving forward with these events.
Ultimately, our goal is to form PTO committees at each school. This would allow for more fundraising opportunities. Currently, the executive board and the building reps do all of the behind the scenes work for all school events and fundraising. Most of us have either a part-time or full-time job, so we can only commit to a certain number of volunteer hours. We wish we could do more, so we are hoping the expansion of the PTO will help considerably.
As always, we truly enjoy volunteering for such an amazing school district! Please feel free to reach out to us at any time.
We are looking forward to a great school year!
