Why should I become a member?

Let’s face it, the beginning of school brings about a mountain of paperwork, forms, need to spend money here, need to spend money there…it can be overwhelming. So you may be looking at this form and wondering, why should I join? Well, here is why:

The membership fee for BRHS PTSO is only $35 per family, but what we give back to the community is much more. Last year only 16% of families joined the PTSO, lower than in past years, but among other things, we have provided $500 scholarships to up to 12 seniors, as educational support and enrichment.

There funds pay for programs/efforts such as the following:

  • Programs to enrich the education and school life of the students of BRHS, including the Freshman/New Student Welcome Reception, Parent/Student College Preparatory Programs, Student Mentor Program (Sigma Tau Sigma), Project Graduation Support.
  • 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: White Board ,DECA / International Career Development, Rolling teacher/student desks, Science Olympiad, Scholastic Art,  Microwaves for students, Rise Against Hunger, Conference and Competitions.  
  • 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 at the BRHS Auditoriums. 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 such as: Welcome Back to School Staff Breakfast , Teacher Work Day Breakfast, National Honor Society Induction, Teacher Appreciation Week luncheon, Senior Picnic, Project Graduation.
