SchoolKidz Pick up this coming Tuesday

If you ordered a SchoolKidz (school supplies) for your student through the Bigelow PTO this past spring, they can be picked up this coming Tuesday, August 26 from 10:30 – noon at Bigelow in the corridor adjacent to the courtyard.  They can also be picked up on the first day of school.  If you ordered a language kit, that is in a separate box (except for Latin).

If you did not order your school supplies through SchoolKidz, class supply lists can be found on the Bigelow Middle School homepage at   Please contact us at if you have any questions regarding your SchoolKidz order.

Bigelow Student Directory Information Confirmation

Dear Bigelow Families,

On August 9th an email was sent from the Bigelow PTO asking families to confirm data for the student directory. Although the directory can include numerous emails per family, the confirmation can only go to the email listed as the primary one for the family.

If your family did not receive this email or you have any questions, please email the PTO at so we can be sure your family is listed.  


Volunteer Needed – School Directory Advertising

We are looking for one or two people to lead the Bigelow student directory advertising effort.  The past few years we have sold advertising space to local organizations and businesses to support the Bigelow PTO and programs for the school.  This project lasts for approximately one month, 4-5 hours per week and can be done during off hours and primarily through email.  If you are interested or have questions, please email us at

Thank you and have wonderful summer!!

Thank you to all of you who have volunteered, donated, baked, sold, chaperoned, washed cars, organized, lead, met, chaired, cooked, bid and painted.  It is your contributions that make Bigelow a better place for our children.  We would like to thank the administration, teachers and staff that educate the students through out the school year.  We so appreciate your dedication and everything that you do for our children.

We congratulate the 8th graders and wish them well as they move on to ninth grade.  A special goodbye to those families that will be leaving Bigelow. We welcome the incoming 6th graders and their families.  Please let us know if you have any questions about Bigelow.  We would like to acknowledge the PTO board members who are leaving the school or stepping down this year:  Julie Bourgoin, Leslie Williams and Ted Everett.   And thank you to Jacquie Arbuckle who has joined next year’s board as co-president.

Again thank you to all.  Have a WONDERFUL summer and see you in September!!
