About Barkell PTO
Who are the members of the
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

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

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.
