PTA Officers Needed

PTA is seeking officers for the 2012-13 school year.  This is such a great way to get involved in your child's education and support what is happening at Beartooth Elementary.  If you are interested or just have questions about what would be expected of you, please contact PTA President Becky Middendorf at

Thank you!

Dress Code Reminder

As the weather gets warmer and students are breaking out their shorts and tank tops, please take a moment to review the Student Dress Code and be sure kids are dressing appropriately for school.  Shorts should not be too short, and tank tops should be at least three finger widths thick.  If they are wearing skinny tank tops or spaghetti straps, please be sure to cover up with a shirt or sweatshirt.  Also, remember that flip flops are hard for the kindergartners to play in, and especially on P.E. and music days they should not wear them.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  Thanks for your cooperation!
