Parent Teacher Association

The Burroughs PTA mission:

  • Promote family involvement in the education of Burroughs students
  • Support school goals through projects and fundraising
  • Build and support a strong Burroughs community of students, parents, families, teachers and administrators.

Please consider joining the PTA for the current year (memberships do not carry over – you must pay dues each year). As a member, you will have a vote on how the PTA spends money for our children and Burroughs.  Dues are $10 per person (each parent or guardian must pay if more than one want to be members and have two votes). 

You can join at any PTA meeting, or you can contact Deb Ward (PTA Treasurer) with your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and $10.

Please pay cash, or make checks payable to Burroughs PTA.  Melody West (school secretary) can also take your money and information and she will pass it along to the PTA’s school mailbox.

PTA meeting dates are:  September 27th, November 15th, January 24th, March 28th, and April 25th.

Babysitting is available on site.
