BHS PTO has rescheduled their April 20th meeting to Tuesday April 18th in the BHS Guidance Conference Room at 6 pm.
The Belmont High School PTO is looking for a few volunteers to ensure the continuation of the organization. All current officers are parents of graduating seniors and will be leaving the organization in June. They have worked hard over the last four years to re-establish this vital group and are hoping that a few parents step up to take over the leadership. It took almost an entire year and hundreds of dollars to file all of the paperwork and collaborate with a law firm to establish the BHS PTO. It would be a shame to lose what they have started. If you have questions, if you are interested, or if you would like to nominate someone, please contact Donna Iacopucci, President, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 528-2601.
