Birchwood PTO Volunteers

Birchwood PTO Volunteers
are the parents and staff who make the PTO events, programs, fundraisers, and homeroom activities happen, and work to keep the Birchwood Community informed of these and all other topics of importance to parents and students.  
If you would like to volunteer in 2015-16, or you're already involved but interested in helping with additional PTO activities, please contact us at birchwood@niskypto.orgor sign up here.

2015-16 Volunteer Positions Signup is Open! 
The Birchwood PTO uses SignUp Genius to sign up and coordinate volunteer efforts.  The 2015-16 volunteer signup sheet is live and available here.  Meanwhile, if you have questions (or don't want to sign up online), don't wait!  Contact us directly at

Homeroom Parents
Homeroom parents at Birchwood are responsible for organizing, supervising and assisting at the four annual classroom parties (Halloween, Holiday, Valentine's Day, and End of Year). Teachers may request additional support from Homeroom Parents (such as Parent Reading times in the Kindergarten classrooms).
 An unlimited number of parents may sign up for each classroom, and a parent may sign up as homeroom parent for multiple classrooms.  Parents who are interested in signing up as a Homeroom Parent may do so through the SignUp Genius link, or by contacting the PTO directly at
Homeroom parents should have signup sheets prepared for Curriculum Night classroom presentations in order to get the optimal number of parents signed up early for each classroom party requirement (i.e., food, paper goods, crafts, day-of assistance).  A sample print signup sheet can be seen here.
Homeroom parents can also use Signup Genius, an online signup service, to help organize signups for parties.  It's easy to learn (and lots of other Birchwood volunteers who use it can help you), and best of all, it's FREE.  An example party signup can be seen here.
