What is Beverly PTO?
Beverly PTO are volunteers that work with the school to provide quality education for all children and youth. PTO is a network of parents, grandparents, teachers, and administrators who are committed to make your child’s time at Beverly a safe and happy learning experience. Bobcat Parents are vital to the success of Beverly Elementary. They bring enthusiasm, guidance, care, advocacy, organizational skills, creativity, technical know-how, encouragement, leadership, and sometimes a little muscle, while making a difference. We also like to have some fun doing it!
We help teachers get additional technology, transportation for field trips, supplies and paper for their classrooms. We fund projects like the expansion of our playground. We celebrate accomplishments, provide incentives, encourage giving back, and offer fun activities for each child throughout the year. We even take care of our Beverly students after they’ve moved on, through our yearly scholarships, granted to college bound seniors
The Mission Statement for the Beverly PTO shall be:
The Organization shall work with the school to provide quality education for all children and youth and shall seek to participate in the educational decision making process. Our objectives are as follows
To promote the welfare of children in the home, school and community.
To bring a closer relationship between the home and school so that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children.
To develop united efforts between home and school to afford children the highest advantages in mental, physical and social education.
