What We Do

We count on parent involvement to guarantee specific academic needs and enrichment activities benefiting all students. Whether it is your time, money, ideas or all of the above, the reality is parent involvement at Burroughs is not only a want but a critical need.

A major purpose of the PTA is fundraising through programs like:

  • Read-A-Thon  
  • Dining 4 Dollars
  • Spirit Wear  
  • Scholastic Book Fair
  • Direct Donations

Below are examples of the benefits we can continue to offer our kids with this level of involvement:

  • Regular Significant Donations to Burroughs Achieve Fund
  • Supplementing Art - Fine Arts Poetry, Art Adventure/Art Institute tour
  • Supplementing Music- Bravo!, MN Sinfonia, and Ordway
  • After School Clubs - Chess, Lego League, Math Club, Sustainability Team 
  • Extra Active & Healthy Programs - Mindfulness, Ice Fishing, Track & Field and the Ski trip
  • Celebrating Accomplishments - 5th Grade Graduation Party, End of the Year 
  • Recognizing our Amazing Teachers - Teacher Appreciation Breakfast
  • Student, Faculty and Family enrichment through PTA sponsored committees: Families for Equity and Justice (FEJ) and Social and Emotional Wellness (SEW)

The Burroughs PTA achieves its goals by managing a budget of $40,000 up to $100,000 that funds classroom enrichment, field trips, teacher support, and school-wide events. The PTA also oversees many of the opportunities for parents to be involved at Burroughs.
