Jessica Hartenstine


My name is Jess Hartenstine and I am your PTO President this year. I am honored at the opportunity to serve our school and community for a second year. Last year I served as the Vice President. My husband James and I are the proud parents of two wonderful girls. Quinn is in third grade and Carsen is starting her first year at BES. I am a small business owner which provides me the flexibility to be with my girls and serve the community. I am honored and looking forward to a fantastic year!

Debbie Duggan


I am so excited to serve the staff and families of BES this year! I am a mom of 3; 6th grade, 3rd grade, and 1st grade. My husband and I love to serve our community and live right in the heart of Boyertown. I work for Morning Star Fellowship within the Children’s Ministry. I am looking forward to a wonderful year at BES no matter what it looks like!

Brooke Patton

Vice President

My name is Brooke Patton and I am your VP for this school year. I am a Mom of 6 and have been married to my best friend for over 9 years. I’m excited for this opportunity again, I was Secretary for 3 years in a row previously. BES was my school and now my children have had the same privilege. Currently I have a senior, junior, 2 in 8th grade and a Kindergartner, with my youngest being in preschool at Cornerstone on Swinehart Rd. I am an assistant teacher there plus I am a In-Home Care Giver for Chestnut Knoll at Home Services. Besides my paid jobs, I have many volunteer jobs. I am the Co-Director for the Boyertown Legionette Twirlers and I am the President of the Ladies Auxiliary for the Friendship Hook & Ladder Fire Company. I enjoy keeping busy, despite the chaos I live in, it helps to keep me sane. I look forward to once again serving the Staff and Families of BES!

Kevin Patton


My name is Kevin Patton and I am your Treasurer for the 2020/2021 school year.  I am a Father of 6 children, and my wife and I have been together for over 11 years.  I previously served as the PTO Treasurer but sadly had to give the position up due to my children moving into middle school.  I am excited for the opportunity to participate in the PTO as my son has just started Kindergarten at BES. I currently am a Montgomery County employee and also volunteer as a firefighter for Boyertown Area Fire & Rescue.  I look forward to this upcoming school year and all of the unique challenges that I am sure we will all be faced with and hope to make it a memorable year for all of the students and families.
