...........................................November Edition

Welcome to the Bay Harbor PTO Pennant!!

The Bay Harbor PTO is an organization committed to creating enrichment opportunities for our students. Our goal is to strengthen, enhance, and encourage an innovative curriculum that will benefit the students of Bay Harbor Elementary School. The decisions made by the PTO will benefit the students, teachers, and families of the Bay Harbor community.

Recap of our November PTO meeting:

  • Our Donation Drive was a HUGE success! We raised $3580. THANK YOU to all of the families who made a donation. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Receipts for your donation will be sent home within the next week.

  • The PTO discussed this year's Fall Fest. We felt like it was one of our best ones yet!! There was a great turn-out and it looked like families were enjoying themselves. Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered and/or attended the event. If you have any feedback/comments please feel free to email Melissa Chrisman.

  • The Howard-Suamico School District is asking families and students to take the Speak Up survey. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey. To get to the survey, click here,

  • November 18th - 22nd is American Education Week. This week presents Americans with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate public education and honor individuals who are making a difference in ensuring that every child receives a quality education.

  • Please remember to send any pictures for the yearbook to this year's yearbook chairperson Stephanie Puissant. If you attended your child's classroom fall celebration and took pictures, please email them to Stephanie.

  • Continue to cut Box Tops and Labels for Education. This is a super easy way to raise money for our school!!
