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.

POWERFUL STRATEGIES TO HELP CHILDREN DEVELOP
INDEPENDENT EXECUTIVE FUNCTION SKILLS
Executive function skills refer to the mental skills we use to pay attention, to organize and plan tasks and materials, to start tasks and stay focused on them, to manage emotions and be flexible, and to keep track of what we are doing. Young children rely on these skills to follow a sequence of instructions for daily tasks while older children need these skills to “break a task down” into a sequence of steps and organize a timeline as the demands for independent learning increases. These skills can impact students at home, school and in social situations.
In this practical strategies seminar parents and professionals will develop a solid understanding of what the executive function skills are and how they impact a student’s academic and personal performance.
