WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
My name is Gina Ober, and I am the PTO president.
I would personally like to welcome you back to school. As a PTO we are always working to support the students and staff here at Burgard. Being a parent or guardian of a Burgard student you are already a part of the PTO.
In order for you to volunteer in any capacity at school events or in the classroom, you must complete a background check prior to volunteering. You can access this information at the district website, immediately.
Our first fundraiser for this year will be a Fun Run on October 28th and we are bringing back our Year End Celebration with a Change War! As previous years we will be continuing to collect Boxtops for Education & Campbell labels throughout the year. Start saving your Boxtops and Campbell labels now!
Our annual budget is based on the previous year's fundraising and is about $15,000. With this budget, we are able to assist the school in many ways. We help pay for assemblies, field trip transportation, family events, teacher appreciation, and mini-grants. Mini-grants are awarded to faculty to help enhance their classrooms.
Not all activities are fundraisers but pass along opportunities to the students and families at Burgard. One event is the Scholastic Book Fair. Our sales go toward buying a book for each student and for additional books for the classrooms. Another event is the Holiday Shoppe. It is available for students to buy high-quality holiday gifts at low prices. All gifts are under $10. We also offer discount Hersheypark tickets in the spring.
Please consider helping with our parent-teacher organization.
We meet the first Monday of every month in the library at 6:30 pm. Please join us as your schedule allows!
