About the PTO

PTO Mission

The Birchwood Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) was formed with the following goals:

  • To bring parents, caregivers, educators, students and the community together to secure the best educational environment for every child
  • To promote the welfare of children at home, in school, and in the community
  • To enhance the capacity of parents, educators and caregivers to guide, support and nurture their children.
The goals of the PTO are implemented through activities and events which bring the Birchwood community together. These programs are supported by funds raised by the PTO and are run by parent volunteers like yourself!

PTO Meetings
Birchwood PTO meetings are typically held one Wednesday a month at 6:30 p.m. (days and times may vary) in the School Conference Room (turn left after the entrance hall; 3rd room on the right). 

The schedule, meeting agendas, and meeting minutes are posted here. Please confirm the meeting schedule on the Birchwood PTO Events Calendar. Everyone is invited to attend.
