Program Overview

Introducing Bridgeway Island K-8 Elementary PTO’s

 


 

In an effort to encourage PTO involvement we have created an incentive program that allows our Bridgeway families to earn points for participating in events and fundraisers. Every point will be equal to $1 of funding and you can decide how that money gets used in our school. Funding can be applied directly to your student’s classroom, towards a specific area of your interest, such as physical education, or even towards the purchasing of classroom technology. As long as it aligns with the PTO mission statement, the possibilities are endless.

 

Each family will have a limit of 25 points per semester. There are a number of ways to earn “Bee Involved Points,” detailed in the grid below. If you volunteer at an event or help out on a committee you can earn points for every hour of your time. It’s as simple as checking in with the event lead or committee chair and you are on your way to earning points! If you attend one of our food related fundraisers, simply snap a photo of your receipt and email it to BeeInvolvedBWI@gmail.com and earn your point for enjoying a family meal together. You can even earn points from collecting and turning in your Box Tops at Box Top Friday’s.  Start earning your points today!

 

Points are awarded on a household basis and there must be at least one Bridgeway Student in the household. Please see the chart below and start earning those points!!
