PTO Board Members

The PTO Board members generally meet on the first Thursday of the month. The next Board meeting is scheduled for Thursday, December 6 at 7:15 am. Due to the size of the conference room and the packed-agenda, we ask that you notify a PTO Board member if you plan to attend so we can make arrangements in advance. Minutes will be made available online, or you can request a copy from the office.

If there is something you need assistance with in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to us or one of the other Burch Family members that you will often see volunteering. (If you are looking to be on a committee or just help on an as-needed basis, check out our Volunteer Opportunities. If you are looking to contribute in some other way, take a look at our/Burch's needs here and at the Burch Shop.) The PTO Board members also are available to answer questions you might have regarding the programs and other efforts we sponsor financially and/or through volunteers.
