Welcome to the BCMS PTO


The Bethlehem Middle School PTO is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the Administration, Faculty, Students and Families associated with the Bethlehem Middle School.


The PTO seeks to fulfill this responsibility by raising funds and seeking out volunteers that will enable us to support the many programs and events that we are called upon to provide for in many ways. The PTO provides assistance to teachers within the classroom settings, raises funds for educational materials and experiences, advocates school and family social interaction and provides an unbiased forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children.


It is our belief that the team effort of a parent teacher organization offers the best possible learning environment for our children and creates a positive and meaningful impact on their lives.

District Postpones Changes to Bus Eligibility

At its March 16 meeting, the Bethlehem Central School District Board of Education decided to postpone any changes to bus transportation eligibility for students for the 2022-23 school year. As a result, no public referendum on the matter will be held in May.

Bus transportation eligibility remains unchanged:

  • Elementary (K-5): Currently, all elementary students are eligible for bus transportation.

  • Middle School (6-8) Currently, students living more 0.5 miles from school are eligible for transportation.

  • High School (9-12): Currently, students living more than 1.0 mile from school are eligible for transportation.

The district had proposed expanding walk zones for all students K-12 in order to consolidate 4-5 bus routes and reduce the demand for bus drivers. The Board will revisit discussions about bus eligibility during the 2022-23 school year or sooner if the district’s bus driver shortage worsens.
