Dear Briargrove Families,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! This year’s PTO fundraising goal will look different as we adapt to the challenges our school and community will face due to COVID-19. While our fundraising will look different this year, our commitment to supporting our school and community remains unchanged. This year, expect to see the Briargrove PTO step up in this uncertain time and increase funds that support vital programs not funded by HISD including:
- At-Home Learning Supplies
Teacher Training and Supplies
School and Playground Facilities
The Briargrove PTO believes in fostering 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 consider supporting our Roadrunners as we strive to make Briargrove the best it can be!
Do your family, friends, or neighbors own a company interested in supporting our Briargrove community and making a meaningful impact on our school and students? Check out our Corporate Underwriting page to learn about the many opportunities for companies to give through our program.
Support BGE Throughout the Year
All parents, guardians, teachers and administrators are eligible members of the BGE PTO! We encourage you to attend a general meeting to get involved and meet other members of our community. See the PTO Calendar & Events page for dates.
Join the PTO Dad’s Club. Enjoy time with other school dads, listen to interesting speakers, and help with specific school projects. Past projects include carpeting the music room and building the Parent Patio.
