A Word From Our Principal
Can be found here: Buffalo Stampede News February 2021
You should have received a PDF copy of our Buffalo Trail Family Handbook with the email welcoming your child to their current grade. As you know, procedures and information changes frequently during our current reality. We are constantly reviewing, re-assessing, and revising procedures with staff and students – we’ve made a handful of adjustments since having our students for the phased-in week and since having all grade levels in, all day. To that end, we have decided it is best for us to share the link to our Buffalo Trail Family Handbook with you (as opposed to emailing PDF copies) so you will have the “living” document and can see the most up to date information.
You can find a copy here: Family Handbook
WE HAVE AN ONLINE STORE!!!
Spirit Wear, Past Yearbooks, and other on hand items are now available through our online store. Shop easily, pay online and items can be sent home with your student. Many of our events will be moving to this platform for ease and to help with social distance protocols.
Check our our store at: Home | Buffalo Trail PTCO (square.site)

FEBRUARY 15 and 16 - No School
With COVID changing everything, the PTO has been unable to
do the fundraisers we normally do. Even though school is remote,
the PTO still provides funds for teacher grants (to help pay for supplies
that teachers would pay for out of pocket), teacher assistants, and
subscriptions to magazines for the library just to name a few.
You can still help our school just by shopping at Amazon Smile and choosing BTE as your charity, by purchasing a King Soopers Card or by scanning receipts and clipping BOX TOPS for submission. All of these little steps help
our fundraising efforts and doesn’t add any cost to our parents.
Why not get extended family involved?!?!
We would love the extra help. THANKS!!!
During this time of social distancing, think of BTE when purchasing from Amazon. It doesn’t cost you anything but provides extra funds for our school.
Amazon - smile.amazon.com - Select Buffalo Trail Elementary PTO as your charity
COLLECT BOX TOPS!
We are still collecting Box Tops to get to our goal. Since the entire shopping experience has changed for so many of us, Box Tops for Education has developed another way for us to continue to earn our Box Tops. We know that this requires an extra step, or maybe two, but we really would love your help in reaching our goal.
To date we have earned $147.40 of our $1000 goal. With limited opportunities
to have fundraisers this year, we hope to make this one count.
Download the app to your phone to scan receipts and choose Buffalo Trail
Elementary as your school, it’s that easy! You can have grandparents,
Aunts, Uncles, and really anyone can help out too!
Or for online receipts...
Please see this link:
This school year's totals show only 68 people are contributing to the digital app. We would love to have that number be much higher.
