Just a plain old donation…
See us at one of our onsite events or send cash or check through your student’s teacher addressed to BLES PTO.
New in 2020, give on MyPayments Plus!
If you have a student enrolled at BLES, you’re a voting member of our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). In lieu of a formal membership enrollment, we’d like for everyone who can to donate to the PTO so we can continue to provide financial support to our school. We’ve added two options for PTO donations on MyPaymentsPlus – the place where you already go to sign annual paperwork and pay for meals. Give to our general PTO fund to help pay for activities like STEM Night, cultural arts for each grade level and teacher supply reimbursements. We’ve also added a Helping Hands donation. Those donations go directly to buy essential items for our BLES food pantry. The suggested donation is $15 per family. However, we thank you for any amount you can contribute. Look for PTO in the “other payments” section.
Thanks to those of you who’ve already given generously.

Sales are online! We’ll have pop-up sales throughout the year! Find out more.
Also, we’ll continue to be at major school events, and we can accept credit cards.

*Note: Publix no longer uses the Publix Partners key fobs. Also, we are in the midst of updating our PTO information instead of the old BLES PTA designation.
At Grandparent Day lunch and our memorable Candlelight Luncheons, our team of volunteer photographers take photos of our guest and design a border with a special BLES design and the year.
It’s a must-have.
Enjoy a meal at your favorite restaurant with other BLES families.
A portion of the cost of your meal goes directly to our school.
Turkey Trot…We are sad to say this year’s Turkey Trot has been cancelled, but stay tuned for updates on a possible virtual run in the spring!
In March, we’ll be in the lobby each Friday morning at 7:45 selling Krispy Kreme donuts for $1.
Send a $1 with your child or come in and get some donuts to take to the office.
It’s the event people stand in line for. Yes, it’s true! It’s a March Friday night of fun and prizes with some entertainment sprinkled in.
You can purchase dinner at the event.
What else can we say – it’s the best family night out ever!
