BCSD PTO 2022-2023


The BCSD PTO is made up of both parent and teacher volunteers. Together we work to enhance and maximize the educational experience of our elementary, middle and high school students. We welcome you to join us in our monthly meetings.

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!

The PTO organizations from the elementary and the middle/high schools recently merged. We are hoping to capitalize on those that are already volunteering while having the ability to reach out to new partners in both schools. If you are interested in joining or volunteering, or have any questions or ideas please send an email to one of the addresses below. We will post meeting dates and times by September.
