Mission: This is a volunteer led organization. The purpose of the BCEMS PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience at BCEMS, to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parental involvement, and to improve the environment at BCEMS through volunteer and financial support.

Membership: is automatically granted to any parent, guardian or other adult standing in loco parentis for a student at the school. The principal and any teacher or other staff employed at the school may be a member and have voting rights. Previous participating members of PTO who no longer have children in the school, may be Ex Officio members. There are no membership dues. Members have voting privileges, one vote per household.

Meetings: 6:30 pm on the First Tuesday of each month in School's library unless otherwise noted. In March our meetings are on the second Tuesday of the month due to Town Meeting.

Walk Run Fun! is a fall fundraising and fitness event that gives students an opportunity to take part in a school wide fundraiser and get fit while doing it! Your support and generosity helps to support our classrooms and school, as a whole. This event also helps to minimize other fundraising efforts while helping to unify the school toward a common goal of fitness.

Walk Run Fun! is a volunteer-organized and run event by the BCEMS Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). In 2017 we raised just shy of $30,000. Tax-deductible donations can be made online at: or by sending checks with participant number, payable to: BCEMS PTO, Inc. 50 Parkside Terrace, Barre, VT 05641 We appreciate your support!
