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 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 13% of families joined the PTSO, but through fundraising efforts, we were able to spend, on average, $17 per student on educational support and enrichment programs.

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: 50th Anniversary Purchases , White Board ,DECA / International Career Development, Rolling teacher/student desks, Science Olympiad, Scholastic Art, Microwaves for students, Rise Against Hunger, Conference and Competition.

•  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 a local venue. 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: Welcome Back to School Staff Breakfast , Teacher Work Day Breakfast, National Honor Society Induction, Teacher Appreciation Week luncheon, Senior Picnic, Project Graduation.
 
Imagine how much more we can provide for the BRHS students and teachers if we can achieve full membership of all BRHS families!
 
The PTSO also need help from parents, guardians, and teachers to make these programs run successfully. In addition to becoming a member of the PTSO, we hope that you will consider volunteering to help with the many opportunities/events we have throughout the year such as: 
  • PTSO Board
  • Programs
  • Membership
  • Teacher Request
  • Hospitality Baking / Set up and Serve
  • Project Graduation
  • Scholarship Application Review
  • Bricks for Broad Run
  • Broad Run Beautification
  • Webmaster
  • MSAAC Rep - Minority Student Achievement Advisory Committee
  • SEAC Rep - Special Education Advisory Committee
  • Annual Auction
NO FRILLS FUNDRAISER
 
When completing the membership form you will also have the opportunity to participate in the PTSO's "No Frills Fundraiser."  We realize that sometimes it’s easier to donate money in lieu of your time…with hectic lives, teenagers and their busy schedules; it’s tough to do it all. Consider making a donation to our "No Frills Fundraiser" to help fund the BRHS PTSO programs.  
 
Donations made to our "No Frills Fundraiser" may be tax-deductible!  
 
DOES YOUR COMPANY MATCH EMPLOYEE DONATIONS?
 
Some companies will match donations that their employees make to 501(3)(c) organizations so please check with your company to see if they have a matching program.  We can do so much more with a little help from everyone!
