Barkell Parent Teacher Organization


 

“…when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better.”

Anne Henderson, Nancy Berla
from "A New Generation of Evidence: The Family is Critical to Student Achievement"

About Barkell PTO

Who are the members of the PTO?
Parents, teachers and our Principal. If you have a child attending Barkell, you are a member of the PTO.

What is the PTO objective?
Our objective is to provide funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich the education of every child at our school.

Why does the PTO fundraise?
To meet our objective and provide items that are no longer covered by our school budget, we must fundraise. Though it may not be our favorite task, it is necessary. We must raise money to continue providing our children with playground equipment, school equipment, teacher supplies, assemblies, and other experiences that we have in the past.

Why should I get involved?
We need your help and so do your children. Volunteering doesn’t have to mean a huge time commitment. We understand it is increasingly more difficult to find time to give, but please, whatever your schedule allows, we have need of you! We have tasks that can be performed in the evenings, during the day or that don’t even involve coming to the school at all.
