PTO UPDATE
Did you know that we are a Green Star School? Because of this, we are making a concerted effort to not add paper to Thursday Folders.  We will be sending almost all of our flyers electronically. If you would like a paper copy of a flyer, please print it out at home. We hope that you will appreciate less clutter in your Thursday Folders!
We would like to thank all of you that brought lunch items for the Staff Luncheon on Monday!  The staff truly appreciated the delicious lunch provided by our wonderful Blue Mountain families.  Thanks to all of you that brought Box Tops and milk caps to Back to School Night!  We are off to a great start for the year!  Keep clipping box tops and collecting milk caps. Drop them off anytime in the labeled collection bins to the left of the school entrance.  
The PTO Board has been working to make many positive changes for our community. There are more opportunities to change things for the better, but we can’t do it alone! We need your help and your voice.  Join us. Make a difference. Influence the direction of your PTO!
