Your PTO contributions are what allows us to do what we do! In consultation with the school principal, the PTO budget committee comes up with the best use for each dollar raised.
Here is what your contributions will help fund:
Staff Professional Development: Funds in order to send our Bradley Elementary teachers to ongoing professional development to ensure that our Bears are receiving the best our teachers have to offer.
Curriculum Enrichment: The PTO provides funds for expanding our literacy library to ensure that all students at their appropriate level no matter their grade level. We also ensure that there are funds available to enrich learning experiences in our state of the art science labs.
Teacher/Staff Appreciation Events: In addition to our Teacher Appreciation Week Activities, the PTO hosts staff appreciation lunches and provides snacks for the teachers throughout the school year.
C.A.M.P. Supplies: The PTO provides funds for supplies necessary in art, music, physical education and computer labs.
Student Body Field Trips: We want to ensure that all students whose families wish to be included during grade level off campus excursions are able to do so. For this reason the PTO provides discretionary funds to offset the cost of students attending field trips.
Special Allocations: If the PTO raises more than its budget, it will make special allocations at the end of the school year for special projects. These special allocations are identified by the principal and the PTO budget committee and approved by a majority of the PTO board.
