Bluewater Elementary is a dynamic community of involved and caring Staff, Teachers and Parents.  Whether you are new or returning to Bluewater, we are so excited for you to be a part of the Bluewater family!
The Bluewater PTO is an active organization dedicated to ensuring the best possible educational opportunities for our students.  We support the Administrators, Teachers and Students in a variety of endeavors that enhance the experience unique to Bluewater Elementary.
The First Step to Feeling Connected to Our School is Getting INVOLVED!
Whether you can come every week, every month or once a year, there are many volunteer opportunities for you to get to know your school and other parents. No matter how your family chooses to help out, your willingness to give of your time and talents will greatly enrich the lives of our students.
To join the PTO, return the attached PTO Membership form and fee.  Your membership allows you to be added to our Facebook Group where you will receive notifications on upcoming events and reminders.  PTO Membership gives you discounts for the Green Corn Festival, Valentine’s Dance and BWE Family Night!
