Welcome to Barnsdale Road School PTO!
Barnsdale Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) promotes and encourages the close relationship between school and home. By sponsoring activities and events, fulfilling teacher wish lists, and funding Art Enrichment and Birthday Books, Barnsdale PTO supplements the rich PreK and Kindergarten experience for our students.
Communications at Barnsdale
Each Friday during the school year, we send out a combined School and PTO Newsletter via email. These emails provide details of upcoming events and activities, including important action Items and curriculum announcements. If you are not receiving these emails, please complete the Sign-Up Form here, contact us at email@example.com, or contact Hope Witt in the school office to be added to the list.
Teachers have their own communications vehicles to provide information specific to their classroom issues and activities. School District 102 sends email communications about issues affecting the entire district.
