Fundraising Update: Thank You!

19 Mar, 2024 | PTSO Announcements | Return|

The PTSO is pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of BHS families, we have reached our fundraising goal for the year. Many, many thanks to everyone who donated! Without your generous contributions, the PTSO would not be able to continue to offer our ongoing programming for students, teachers and staff, and families.

Here are some of the programs that your donations have supported and will continue to support this year:

  • Student club grants: The PTSO approved $3,950 in club grants to 17 clubs for 2023-24.
  • Parent speaker series: Recent popular presentations have discussed gap years, executive functioning, and youth risk behavior.
  • DEI programming: Watch for details about our two upcoming speaker events in March and April!
  • Acts of kindness for students: These popular events for students include activities throughout the year, such as our hot chocolate social and fidget-toys giveaway, as well as Acts of Kindness week, May 13-17.
  • Teacher and staff appreciation: In addition to saying thank you to our educators during Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week May 6-10, the PTSO also organizes events for teachers and staff throughout the year.
  • Spring parent social: Stay tuned for more information!
  • Therapy dogs: You can find the therapy dogs in the cafeteria every Friday during lunch.
  • BHS PTSO’s President's Volunteer Service Award Program: Starting this year, the Belmont High's PTSO is now a Certifying Organization for The President’s Volunteer Service Award!
  • Events such as the Senior Capstone luncheon and the 9th Grade and New Student Orientation Luncheon
