The quality of education at Bryker Woods is tied to the support the school receives from parents and families. As public education continues to experience budget cuts, school programs important to our children’s education must be supplemented. There are a variety of ways to support Bryker Woods elementary. Many volunteering opportunities exists both within and outside the classroom (ask your student’s teacher) The PTA is always looking for volunteers, especially volunteers to lead significant school events (e.g. AxBW) See details about volunteering at Bryker Woods Elementary.

And of course financial contributions are vital to continuing the quality of education we want for our children. The cost of providing supplementary education and supplies for teachers, field trips and classroom programs really adds up. This is where the PTA helps supplement our schools budget for education. See PTA budget details. There are many sources to provide the PTA budget. The Annual Panther Fund plays a big  role. Although providing the foundation of the budget, other programs like Spring Fling are also important. Such funds can be used to procure new educational opportunities and or fund programs denied because of the absent of funds.
