Dear Briargrove Families,

 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! This year’s PTO fundraising goal is $325,000. Our teachers and almost 900 students rely on this money to support vital programs not funded by HISD including:

  • IB program

  • Security

  • Curriculum

  • Teacher Training and Supplies

  • School and Playground Facilities

The Briargrove PTO would like to foster a culture of 100% participation, where we all stand together to support our school and students, regardless of the size of the contribution. Donating to the Briargrove PTO Annual Fund comes with benefits not only for your family, but also for your child’s education. Please support our Roadrunners as we strive to make Briargrove the best it can be!
