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. 


The Kindergarten team received funds to purchase the curriculum, "The Character Tree." Mrs. Cabellon received funds to purchase digital licenses for Math Night which will be hosted next month. Finally, Mr. Garrido received funds to purchase much needed books for his 1st grade classroom. 


Next month the PTA plans to have another grant session. We have polled the staff and have found that they will be asking for more money than we have remaining to fund grants. During these uncertain times, the PTA wants to support our teachers to the best of our abilities. They more than deserve it! So, we humbly ask for your help.

Please click here and donate whatever you can. We will use this money to help cover the grants and any additional funds will go into the general fund to help us with 5th grade promotion and to prepare for the next year.

 

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

2021 PTA Awards

While volunteers are not in the building this year and teachers are working in person and remote, Briarwood PTA knows that they are working hard to make this non traditional school year work for our students and families.  This year more than ever, we would like to recognize them with our annual awards. Would you like to recognize and thank someone who puts a lot of heart and energy into our school?

Golden Acorn Award- 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. Nominate Here.


Outstanding Educator Award- 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. Nominate Here.
