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. 

School Supplies
Once again, the PTO has decided to purchase the school supplies and ask every family to pay a supply fee.  Providing the supplies in this way not only saves time and money for you, it makes classroom management much easier for the teachers.  

This year the supply fee will be $20 per child.  When you receive your supply bag it may not be $20 worth of supplies as we anticipate additional needs throughout the year especially when we transition to more in person learning.  We need to emphasize that the PTO is not raising money through this effort.  If everyone pays their fee, the PTO will still need to cover a portion of the cost. For that reason we ask that everyone return their supply fee as soon as possible.  

Supply fees can be paid during supply pick-up (Wednesday, September 2 from 12pm-6pm and Thursday, September 3 from 9am-3pm) or mailed to school. Checks may be made payable to BWESPTO.  We are working on adding a PayPal link to our webpage but in the meantime our PayPal email is Treasurer@bwespto.org.    

While school supplies are an expected expense, we understand that some of our families are facing challenging situations and may not be able to cover the supply fee and for this reason scholarships are available.
