Did You Fill Out Your Member Directory Info?

If you paid your PTO membership dues, you should have received an email one or more times last year inviting you to complete our member directory. You can include whatever information you prefer to share - maybe it's just an email, maybe it's your address. Families rely on this as a great source of information when trying to put together play dates, birthday parties, or even looking for a carpool buddy.

If you don't remember filling it out already, we encourage you to check your email (along with any spam filters, promotional folders, etc.) for a note either from or from Signup Genius on behalf of the PTO. We'll be sending another reminder email again next week to those who are members but haven't submitted their information, so be on the lookout for those instructions mid-next week.

Remember that only PTO members can be included and receive access to the student directory. Still haven't become a PTO member? Don't worry - there's still time! Either pay membership dues online or send $15 (or checks made payable to BGS PTO) to school in an envelope marked "BGS PTO Membership" and include your children's names/teachers.
