Welcome Back Letter & PTSO Update [connect-ed/posted 8/08/2022]

Welcome Back Letter from BRHS....Click HERE.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Parents/Guardians of BRHS Students,

We hope you are enjoying your summer. Welcome parents of Class of 2026!  It is hard to believe that the new school year will begin in less than 3 weeks. Please take a few minutes to read through this email and why you should join the PARENT-TEACHER-STUDENT ORGANIZATION. 

HOW DO I BECOME A PTSO MEMBER?   Click here  https://fs20.formsite.com/ashburn/form12/index.html?1470424957558 to complete the online membership form & pay for your membership with a credit card.

WHY SHOULD I BECOME A PTSO MEMBER? The membership fee for BRHS PTSO is only $35 per family, but what we give back to the community is much more. These funds pay for programs/efforts such as the following:

  • Teacher requests– Some items or events that are not in the yearly school budget and would not be possible without the help of the BRHS PTSO. Some examples: Special Needs Field Day, TechEd Projects, Student Art Displays, Magazine Subscriptions for English classes, school-based clubs, and organizations such as National Honor Society, DECA, Science Olympiad, just to name a few.
  • Scholarships- Each spring the BRHS PTSO awards up to ten $500 college scholarships to the most deserving BRHS graduating seniors regardless of gender or educational path.
  • Project Graduation - The BRHS PTSO contributes to the Project Graduation All-Night Party that is a yearly event held after graduation night. For the class of 2023, the event will be held at BRHS on June 1, 2023. It is a nationwide effort to provide graduating seniors with a fun, safe place to celebrate their last night together as high school students.
  • Hospitality- The BRHS PTSO supplements the Hospitality committee needs when parent donations are not sufficient to provide for food and drinks at many school events including Academic Awards Night, National Honor Society Induction reception, Faculty and Staff Welcome Back Breakfast and Teacher Appreciation Week.

Imagine how much more we can provide for the BRHS students and teachers if we can achieve full membership of all BRHS families! If you have any questions, please email us at brhsptso20147@gmail.com 

We look forward to seeing you at our first PTSO meeting on September 12 at 7pm at the school library. The PTSO general meetings are usually on the second Monday of the month except if there are holidays. 

Thank you for your support!

BRHS PTSO Board 2022-23;  Principal David Spage, President Marita Reidy, 1st VP Raman Sharma, 2nd VP Ray Bugnosen, Secretary Colleen Miller and Treasurer Vandana Vinay
