PTO Update

Art Show Update

Unfortunately, our Art Show, scheduled for today, has been postponed. Please see a message from Shawn Ritter below. We know that DCS is trying to act in our best interest and keep our children and families safe. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding!

Per Dr. Hoadley’s email: Effective Thursday, March 12, all “mass indoor gatherings” will be postponed until Monday, April 13.

This means the Bailey Art Show that was scheduled for Thursday, March 12 from 6pm-8pm has been postponed. I will be working closely with Mrs. Kranstuber to determine when and if this event will be rescheduled. Please know that we still plan on having students visit the art show tomorrow during their related arts period. Thank you for your understanding during these interesting times.

I will continue to share more information regarding postponed events, updated visitor protocols and after school activities as soon as I have it. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email, ritter_shawn@dublinschools.net.

Open Executive Board Positions

It’s hard to believe that we only have a few months left of the 2019-2020 school year. As we begin planning for next school year, the PTO is looking for parents who are interested in taking on a leadership role within the PTO Executive Board. The nominations for each position and possible election (if more than 1 person would like a position) will be presented at the 9:30am, March 4th PTO meeting

Our goal is to expand the board and ideally have 2 people in every position with the exception of President, President Elect, Member at Large (3 spots total), and Adviser/Past President. This way, responsibility can be shared between 2 people. The open Executive Board positions are as follows:

President Elect – act as an aide to the President; perform other duties that may be delegated; assume duties of President in her absence and assume the office of President at the end of the 20-21 school year. 

Co-Vice President – Coordinate special projects that the PTO deem appropriate; assist the President as needed; be the coordinator for the Room Parents.

Co- Secretary – record the minutes at all of the meetings for the executive board and PTO meetings; report any correspondence received to the PTO and make the appropriate response. Perform other duties as needed.

Assistant Treasurer – work with the current treasurer on tasks such as receiving and disbursing monies administered by the PTO’s general fund and subsidiary accounts and keep records of these transactions; assist with developing the annual PTO budget; and assist the treasurer with other duties as deemed appropriate. 

Member at Large (2-3 openings) – attend all scheduled Executive Board meetings; assist other executive board members and committee chairs with various duties as needed; may vote in all situations; present the views and opinions of different segments of the BES population.

If you are interested in any of these open Executive Board Positions, please let myself or any of the Election Committee Members know by 2/21. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me as well.

Watch D.O.G.S. – Sign Up Now

I have attached the link to the google sign up form for the Watch D.O.G.S. program.  I have also outlined the changes to the program within the form.


Please remember that in order to volunteer for this program, you must complete a background check and be approved by Central Office prior to coming in and volunteering.  Background checks are good for five years so if you recently had one completed, you should be good to go! 


Important pointers about the program:

  • The program will run from November through the end of March.
  • Watch D.O.G.S. are permitted to volunteer on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Volunteer time in the classroom is limited to 40 minutes (It was previously 60 min.).
  • We ask that you coordinate your time with your child’s lunch/recess, meaning you can volunteer in the classroom and then go to lunch/recess with your child or come in for lunch/recess with your child and then volunteer in the classroom.
  • Please email your child’s teacher two days prior to volunteering to setup your schedule.

Destination Imagination

Interested in a fun, innovative, team-building experience?

Destination Imagination teams are beginning to form for the winter/spring DI season. This program is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning. Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem-solving process. Teams may showcase their solutions at the local tournament on Saturday, March 7, 2020 in Circleville, OH. If you are interested in learning more about DI, check out this site:https://www.destinationimagination.org/.


Email Kristina at kvanbuskirk@gmail.com of your interest. Kristina will try to match you with same grade peers. Don’t forget each team needs at least one team manager (parent volunteer).
