Bigelow PTO Membership 2018

All Bigelow Middle School parents & guardians are members of the PTO. Dues are voluntary, but they help fund enrichment materials for classrooms, programs for students, and much more. Suggested PTO dues are $20 and you will be offered a paper copy of our Family Directory.

You can pay your dues by logging in to the Directory (HERE), or mailing in a paper dues form (download HERE) with a check payable to Bigelow PTO. If you have any questions, please contact


Deadline for the Bigelow Family Directory is 9/12

Please confirm you information on the Bigelow Family Directory by 9/12! Families that do not update their data will be displayed as entered or might not be included.

Attention 8th grade parents!!! This is a busy and eventful year for your child. Many 8th grade families are NOT in the Directory, so please add your information now!

NOTE:  The Bigelow PTO maintains the online Family Directory at MySchoolAnywhere, and we also print copies as a service to the Bigelow community. The online directory is open to all Bigelow families at all times, and every effort is made to ensure the accuracy and integrity of its data – we count on families to help us to keep it that way. Bigelow families are automatically in the directory unless they specifically opt out when confirming their data. Parents that do not update their data will be displayed as entered.
