Parent-Teacher Organization

The Barnstead Elementary School PTO is a nonprofit, volunteer parent/teacher organization whose membership is open to all parents, legal guardians, teachers and staff members at Barnstead Elementary School. The PTO invites all members to share ideas and support BES’ youth.


The PTO’s mission is to support a positive relationship between home and school by fostering open communication between parents and staff of the Barnstead Elementary School. Our efforts serve to enhance and maximize the educational experience of every child. We also seek to provide an environment of support to staff such that it lends to high morale and overall satisfaction in the school environment. Additionally the PTO is organized to provide those resources to the school that are either not provided or not provided sufficiently for in the school budget but are deemed necessary or desirable by the staff for the support and education of the children at Barnstead Elementary School.
