Please join us for the first PTO gathering of the year where we will discuss the 2019/2020 Bigelow school year and how you can get involved!
Your involvement is critical to making this year a successful one, and we are so grateful for your support. Come and meet other Bigelow parents, both new and current, and enjoy a glass of wine and light appetizers!
Principal Todd Harrison will update parents on the happenings at the school and PTO officers will talk about PTO events and plans for the 2019-20, including 8th Grade Activities and volunteering opportunities.
Hope to see you there!
Thank you to all who contributed with the PTO by paying Membership Dues!
Although dues are voluntary, they are critical to help fund enrichment materials for classrooms, technology, community events, and much more. Please take a minute to see what your PTO does for our children and the school.
There’s still time to contribute! Please go to our Membership page and choose the amount you would like to donate. Thanks!
