BES School Supplies Ordering Information

Take the worry and stress out of buying school supplies for next fall!

frazzled mom

Bow PTO has partnered with SchoolKidz to handle ordering and production of school supplies based on the 2016-2017 BES supply list by grade level.

This is not a fundraiser, but simply a service the PTO is providing to help ease the stress of going back to school.

Orders must be submitted by June 10th, 2016!

To order school supply kits click on this link www.shopttkits.com and then follow the instructions below:


Account #: 88604 (type in number in the search menu)

Kits are listed by grade level.  There are optional items for purchase including backpacks, thermos, lunchboxes and water bottles. In addition, there are earbuds and headphones which are listed as “optional” items for purchase on the school supplies list for some grade levels.

The kits include (no additional charge) a heavy duty storage keepsake box, 40 pre-addressed labels with your child’s name on it and 10 envelopes to use through the school year for field trip money and such.  The kits will be delivered to the school and available in your child’s classroom on the August 29th open house night.  Any additional items purchased through the website will also be available for pick up the same evening.

If you prefer to use a paper order form, they will be sent home with your child next week.

How can you help?

Remind other parents of BES students that it’s time to order supplies.

You can donate additional funds to help get kits for BES children in need.  Please use a paper order form and indicate the amount you would like to donate for a child in need.  Donations received will be used to order extra kits with additional discounts from SchoolKidz.

Questions? e-mail Bianca Contreras at  bowptopres@gmail.com

Principal Gergler’s Invitation to Join the Bow PTO

Principal Kurt Gergler’s invitation!

Join the BOW PTO!

“This group of dedicated individuals work to raise and spend money to better the school experiences for our children in all three Bow schools. The meetings are a time to update current projects and set the compass for future directions. I think it was Pete Seeger (Google him if you need to) who said that interacting with committed people, working together towards a common positive goal, in itself is energy giving and well worth our effort. He was more eloquent, but his words have been with me for decades and remind me to join groups of people engaged in positive activities whenever I can. The gift the PTO offers you is a convenient forum for your commitment fix. Join us!”

The next PTO meeting will be on Wednesday, April 13 at 7:00.
