Camp Bournedale Parent Volunteer Sign-Up Form
Thank you PTO for the fabulous lunch for our staff this week!
Our second-grade students had an assembly earlier this week from members of the 4-H club. The students learned all about animal adaptations. The students had so much fun and had some great questions for our presenter! Thank you to our second-grade team for arranging the visit.
Grade 5 students are feeling a bit of spring fever! They just started a seed planting project. The milk jugs help create the perfect ecosystem for plants to grow. The plants are located in the sunny area in the back of the school by the fifth-grade doors.
Here are some very dedicated sixth-grade Patriot Project volunteers. These students helped our younger students present their projects this morning in the library.

SAVE THE DATES
Volunteer with the PTO!
Keep helping all year long!
As a new board during the 2021-2022 year, we learned a lot and had a great year bringing back a lot of fun events, activities and fundraisers. We’re looking forward to an even more amazing 2022-2023 school year. We already have many events planned and would love to have more parents involved. It’s always good to see some fresh faces and get new ideas. Grab a friend and attend a meeting or reach out to volunteer. Whether it’s for an hour or if you want to coordinate an event, no amount of time is too small. The PTO is strictly volunteer based, so the more help we have, the better experience we can provide our children!
