PTO Thanks Teachers; Feeling is Mutual

PTO Thanks Teachers; Feeling is Mutual
Kendall Dreyer, Class of 2018

Any Benedictine staff or faculty member that reads the newspaper woke up Sunday morning to a pleasant surprise.The Benedictine Parent Teacher Organization contacted the Richmond Times Dispatch and had an ad published thanking the faculty and staff of BCP for all they do for the students. In addition to helping boost teachers' morale, the PTO is a strong force at the school: They run the Cadet Shop, stock the teachers' lounge, facilitate lunch, host events (such as Grandparents' Day, the Father-Son and Mother-Son Masses and Dinners) and aid in making the school run like a well-oiled machine.

“It was nice to see the acknowledgement from the parents,” Mr. Forster, Benedictine director of communications, stated. “But in reality, the PTO already does so much for the teachers, it was almost superfluous.” He went on to add, “I can't imagine a more engaged and supportive organization. Absent the presence of the PTO, I’m not sure where we would be as a school.”
Without the PTO, our school wouldn't be able to function nearly as well; Some would even go as far as to consider the PTO a critical foundation of our school. "It was nice to see the acknowledgement from the parents," Mr. Forster, Benedictine director of communications, stated. "But in reality, the PTO already does so much for the teachers, it was almost superfluous." He went on to add, "I can't imagine a more engaged and supportive organization. Absent the presence of the PTO, I'm not sure where we would be as a school."

Mrs. Garbett, a key member of the organization, when asked about the recent ad, said, "It's about giving back to the teachers. We act as liaison of sorts. We help by bridging the gap between students and the faculty members of Benedictine College Preparatory.

The Parent Teacher Organization truly assists in so many crucial aspects of our daily lives at Benedictine. Without them, we would up a creek without a paddle. They are the real heroes, the silent ones, never boasting of their accomplishments. Their daily assistance does not go unnoticed; We appreciate everything they do for us, if this reporter may be so bold as to speak on behalf of both the faculty and student body.

Thank you for all you do in service for this great school. Go Green.
