TEACHER FAVORITE LISTS are now available on the BEMS PTO website!!

Sometimes we want to do a little something special for our teachers and staff just to put a smile on their face ~ maybe around the holiday season, or during Teacher Appreciation Week, for their birthday, or anytime!  But what to give them?  We've now made it super easy for you to find what BEMS teachers and staff truly love the most, with Teacher Favorite Lists!  

If interested just visit our website bemspto.org, click "Staff Favorites", then click the link that appears, and search by teacher last name. (or click HERE).  All lists are in PDF format and can be printed.  Please note that these lists were optional for the staff to complete, and not every BEMS teacher and staff member has submitted a list. We do have many lists so far and more are streaming in, so check back soon if you don't see all of your students' teachers!


Support the PTO by purchasing BEMS stickers and magnets (easy stocking stuffers!). Order online and either pick up your purchase in the front office during school hours or have your order delivered to your student’s locker. Magnets commemorate the 20th anniversary of BEMS. Stickers are available in the 20th anniversary design and 4 other colorful designs!
