The Boltdog Boosters are the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for IPS/Butler Lab School 55. The Boltdog Boosters are organized and operated to foster an inclusive, collaborative community which enriches and supports the students, staff, and families of Butler Lab School 55. The following individuals are eligible to join:
- Parents and guardians of a Butler 55 student.
- Students of Butler 55 in 6th, 7th or 8th grade.
- Staff and administrators of Butler 55.
To join and become a voting member, you must attend one meeting or register for a Facebook Live event covering one of our meetings.
As we continue to develop our Butler Lab 55 community, we are excited to offer multiple events throughout the year to our students and their families. Our annual Boltdog Block Party is our fall event to bring together our students and their families. Our annual Night of 100 Bids adult only event is our largest fundraiser. Our most recent fundraising supported our PreK- 8 music program at 55.
Our Spirit Wear fundraising through 539 Apparel is an easy way to support our PTO, while also showing your school spirit! Orders are periodically placed with free delivery to your student at school, but orders can always be made through our 539 Apparel shop.
The rest of the year, the Boltdog Boosters supports our students, faculty, and school community through the work of five committees: Events, Environment, Community Enrichment, Student Support, and Faculty Support. Eligible individuals can get involved by attending one of our meetings or volunteering.
