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. 

Due to technical difficulties, all current PTO information will be posted on the homepage.
Thank you!

School Supplies

On behalf of the PTO Board, welcome back! We hope everyone had a great summer break and is excited about the new year. We would like to extend a special welcome to all the new families joining our community.

Once again, we have 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 $25 per child.  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 part of the cost. For that reason, it is very important that everyone return their supply fee as soon as possible. While school supplies are an expected expense, we understand that some of our families are facing challenging situations. Please do not hesitate to request a scholarship if that would be helpful at this time. 

If you do not pay at Open House, you may send your payment in via Backpack Express.  Please fill out the bottom form and send either cash or a check made out to the Broadus Wood PTO.  Then put the form and payment in a sealed envelope labeled “PTO School Supplies”. 

For more information, please see the attached letter.


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.
