December Spirit Week

PTO News


Please take a moment to check out this website for socially distant family fun!


Our yearbook coordinator needs help! Please take photos of your students at home this month. Especially during Spirit Week next week. Without having any parents at the school and no volunteers allowed, we still need many photos of our Bobcats for our Yearbook. If you get photos of your students, please email them to your teacher to forward to Mr. V to organize into our yearbook photo DropBox by classroom. Or email to Mr. V directly, but specify which classroom your student is in. Thank you so much!


Winter classroom parties that normally happen before the December break are pushed back to January where we can hopefully have them in person. We are aiming for a date of January 15th. Please reach out to your room parent if you have any questions!


Support Bell Graham PTO while you do your shopping on Amazon! You can now support BG PTO even while using the Amazon app from your phone. See flyer below on how to set this up.


Just like AmazonSmile and BoxTops, we can earn money for purchases that you already make on a regular basis. Bell Graham PTO now has an account with ShopwithScrip - a very popular tool that many local schools and organizations already use. When you purchase gift cards for teachers, family, friends or even for regular purchases like gas, groceries, and coffee, a portion of the gift card value will be given right back to the BG PTO. Please enroll and download their app “RaiseRight”. BG code is 65AL14E472L57. It only takes a moment. With holiday gift giving approaching, please find time to enroll in this easy way to fundraise for BG!


Don’t forget to download the Box Top app and scan in your receipts after all your holiday grocery shopping!


Show your school spirit each Friday with your Bell Graham spirit wear! And make sure to have a blast dressing up each day next week for Student Council’s Spirit Week before break.
