Buckland Mills PTO - Support Teachers 08/17/2023

Wish lists are flooding in! This year, we've taken a new approach by asking our teachers to provide their wish list links instead of simply sharing their favorite things. These lists are brimming with items that will enhance your childโ€™s learning journey and contribute to the teacher's dedication to their education.

Remember, it truly takes a village! While the homeroom teacher plays a crucial role, let's not overlook our incredible Encore Team, Learning Specialists, Guidance Team, and Support Staff. Working together, they are shaping the future, and each one of them deserves our unwavering support!

Our collection grows daily, so if your desired teacher's list isn't visible, remember to revisit for the latest updates!

Buckland Mills PTO - Support Teachers We have an exciting opportunity for you to support our amazing teachers! By purchasing items off their wish lists, you can make a direct impact on their classrooms and help create an optimal learning environment for our students. Your support will go a long way in empowering our dedicated


Join us tomorrow for Open House! Come meet the teacher, see the classroom, and drop off supplies. Don't forget to pop by the PTO table in the lunchroom to get connected and check out the spirit wear! We can't wait to see you!


Our โœจROCKSTAR โœจ teachers are back in the building today!!! They are preparing their classrooms and planning for an extraordinary year.

Thank you to Maria, the entire Hakeem Crew, Heather, and Krystal for setting the teachers up with breakfast goodies and a much needed Monday morning kick-off! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

We canโ€™t wait for this EPIC 2023-2024 School Year.

**Side note: If hosting large meals or putting together menus on a budget is something you enjoy-we need to talk!! Reach out to one of your PTO officers and letโ€™s get you plugged in! **

๐Ÿ—ฃ We are excited to share with you 2 NEW opportunities to get involved in your BMES Community!

Copy Wildcats will be a team of volunteers who help in the copy room. Teachers will be encouraged to submit copy projects, and other items we can assist with outside the classroom. Our team of Copy Wildcats will complete the requests and return the projects to the teachers.

The Cafeteria Crew will help our lunchroom staff. Their duties will include assisting students as needed, helping clean between lunches, and being a positive presence in the cafeteria. What kid wouldn't love to see their parent walking around the lunchroom?

As with all our volunteer opportunities, you give only what you can. Sign up to learn more. We look forward to an amazing 2023-24 school year!

So order your 1st Day school Supplies kit early and save yourself time and money this year! They ship directly to your house for free and includes everything your teacher is asking for ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰
