Virtual Family Night Volunteer Opportunity: We are happy to share that our first virtual family night went really well! We would like to host a virtual trivia night and a virtual talent show this spring. Would like to host one of these events? Dates are flexible.

Please reach out to Jasmine if you are interested briarwoodpresident@outlook.com


Board Members for 2021-2022- All of our current board members are in their second year of service in their current roles.  All board positions will be open for the next school year.  

In order to have a PTA that can legally do business at Briarwood next year, there must be at least four elected board members.  Without a PTA next year at Briarwood, programs like teacher stipends, teacher grants, Science to Go, art lessons, social events, book fairs, yearbook, 5th grade gifts, etc would all be lost.

We want to be open and honest about the loss, because we believe so strongly in all the amazing things we as the Briarwood PTA bring to the school and our community.  

We are still looking to fill the Treasurer and VP of Communications roles.

If you would like more information about open positions, please email ptabriarwood@gmail.com, and we will be in touch.  Thank you!


 

 

 

During a normal school year, we hold a fundraiser in the fall to help fund the many programs we offer at Briarwood. This year, due to the pandemic, we made the decision as a board not to do a large fundraiser. In November, we were able to grant money to teachers to fund activities and purchase materials using funds in the PTA account from the previous year.  Thanks to your donations, we were able to award three grants at our March meeting.

 

November Grants:

  • The Kindergarten team received funds to purchase the curriculum, "The Character Tree."
  • Mrs. Cabellon received funds to purchase digital licenses for Math Night which was hosted in March.
  • Mr. Garrido received funds to purchase much needed books for his 1st grade classroom. 

 

March Grants:

  • The Second Grade Team received funding for Windows and Mirrors- transitional chapter books featuring diverse characters, written by diverse authors, for book clubs and independent reading.
  • The Fifth Grade Team received funding for new books for book clubs with Social Justice theme.
  • Mrs. Cabellon received funding for a second Family Math Night to be hosted soon.


It's not too late to donate! Any additional donations will go to our general fund to help us with  5th grade promotion and to prepare for the next year. Please click here and donate whatever you can. 

Thank you so much for your support!
Jasmine Brothers- Briarwood PTA President
