The Bertha-Hewitt School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) began in 2018 and is merely getting started.
Part of the mission of the PTO is to promote communication and connection between all areas of school (staff, students, administration, parents and community), to help improve school/home relationships by enabling parents and staff to identify the needs of the district, to increase and sustain parental interest and to help provide the resources needed for Bertha-Hewitt staff to function effectively in a working relationship with parents and community members, and to improve the school environment through volunteer and financial resources.
If you are a parent or guardian of a student at Bertha-Hewitt or if you are a staff member of Bertha-Hewitt School, you are already of member of the Bertha-Hewitt School PTO. It was decided that membership is automatic and FREE. The group is inclusive, not exclusive. We know how busy everyone is and will never expect you to volunteer for everything all the time, only as much as you can! We trust you to know how much that is! And we trust you to know WHAT that is. We need help with all kinds of tasks and need volunteers with all kinds of gifts. If you don't feel comfortable in a group setting or organizing a large event, but would love to donate baked goods for sales or do other crafty tasks or even stuffing envelopes, WE NEED YOU, TOO!
Regular meetings are held on the first Monday of the month (unless it falls on a holiday) at 6pm in the Staff Workroom at Bertha-Hewitt School. If you are interested in becoming more involved with the PTO or if you would like more information, contact Jenn Wolfenbarger, PTO President at (218) 924-3253 or email .
