Welcome to the Broadus Wood PTO!  The PTO is a non-profit organization of all parents, guardians, and staff at Broadus Wood and our mission is to foster the best educational experience possible for our students. We strive to do this through a variety of ways. We fund field trips and assemblies, hold after school and evening events, and purchase items to improve facilities and instruction. We also work to facilitate communication among staff and families and provide a forum to discuss long-term plans for the school.

Back to School Check List

The start of the year is a very busy time. We hope this list will be helpful in getting everyone off to a great start.
  1. Complete the student registration process through Parent Portal.
  2. Bookmark our webpage. 
  3. Make sure you are on our e-mail list for announcements. Go to this link to join the group. 
  4. Link your store loyalty/reward cards (Kroger, Harris Teeter, Giant & Target) to Broadus Wood Elementary. You must do this again even if you have linked your cards in the past. For more information go here.
  5. If you have an Amazon account, use AmazonSmile and choose the Broadus Wood PTO as your charity. We will receive a small percentage of every purchase.
  6. Download the BoxTops app and start scanning your receipts!
  7. Submit the supply fee, which this year is $25 per child. The fee can be paid through Backpack Express.



The PTO communicates with families in several ways. Make sure you are connected!

1.  Backpack Express. Although we and the school are trying to use electronic communications as much as possible, we will occasionally send home paper flyers. Our teachers put these in your child's folder/backpack. You may also return things like order forms in this manner.

2.  The Bobcat Bulletin. This is our weekly newsletter. To make sure you receive this, simply sign up at this link.

3.  BWESNewsOnline. This is our e-mail listserv, which we primarily use for reminders and other announcements. To sign up, click on this link.
