Bednarcik Home & School Organization
Each District 308 school is generously supported by the efforts of its parent organization. The individuals in these groups have graciously volunteered countless hours of time and effort to help our students thrive. From fund raising, assistance at school events, and the development of special programs to communicating with parents to keep them informed about their children’s education, the parent/school relationship is a critical and valued partnership. District 308 so strongly believes in the partnership between the school and families that it is the cornerstone of the district’s mission.
The district encourages parents to join their children in forming a close relationship with their school. By working together towards a common goal, everyone—especially our children—will benefit.
Dear Bednarcik families,
We are thrilled that you are interested in HSO and our webpage. HSO is an important element in your child's growth and opportunities throughout his/her school years. There are any number of ways for you to be a part of your child's school days by becoming involved in HSO, as we are always looking for volunteers and new members. If you would like to join or volunteer for this most rewarding organization, please contact one of the HSO Executive Committee members for more information. You may still show your support should your schedule not allow you the time by simply becoming a HSO member. The cost of a family membership is $10, three year membership for $25, and a lifetime membership for $50. You may join at any time during the school year. HSO is also a great introduction to school staff, parents and students.
When meeting, the Bednarcik HSO meets at 6 p.m. in the Bednarcik Junior High School Community Room. Committee meetings will be held on an as-needed basis.

What is the PTO?
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is composed of parents, teachers, and staff working together to better our school and foster relationships throughout the school community.
What do we do?
We assist the school with providing innovative teaching resources for our kiddos. We plan fun events to bring families into the school throughout the year such as the 6th grade ice cream social and the 8th grade dance. We support our teachers and staff with appreciation events. We work with our school administrators to collaborate on school events and help to staff those events.
Who can join?
If you have a child at our school, you can.
What does my membership pay for?
Membership fees help to pay for all of the fun events and innovative teaching resources we assist the school with throughout the year. We also host fundraisers to help.
What if I am not able to help at the school, can I still join?
Absolutely. We ask for volunteers throughout the year but there is no minimum requirement to be a member. We’re glad to have your support in whatever form you are able.
Do I have to attend meetings to join?
No. We would love you to be there to help us plan and to provide feedback on the things we are doing, but it is not a requirement of membership.
