Do you want to recognize and thank someone who puts a lot of heart and energy into our school? Nominate that volunteer or staff member for one of our Annual Awards.

The Briarwood PTA annually recognizes volunteers and educators who go above and beyond for the sake of our kids through the Golden Acorn and Outstanding Educator. 

The Golden Acorn is a PTA award given every year to outstanding volunteers for their service to our school and community. Our Golden Acorn specifically recognizes the contributions individuals have made at Briarwood Elementary and within our local community. 

This award is, above all, a PTA award whose winners volunteer in ways that meet the mission of the PTA: promoting the health, welfare, safety and education of all children and youth in the home, school, and community. Volunteers demonstrate an outstanding personal commitment to improving the lives of children and youth through their service to the school, district, and community.  

The Outstanding Educator Award was created by the PTA to recognize individuals who have provided outstanding educational opportunities for children and youth that are beyond the normal scope of their jobs. An educator can be, but is not limited to being a teacher, and can include specialists, support staff, administrators or community members.


Please help us select outstanding volunteers from the Briarwood community to receive an Award by nominating someone you feel is deserving!
