What is the PTO?
The PTO is an organization of parents and teachers committed to enriching the educational and social experience of students and their families. The Burrell Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) welcomes new and returning Burrell families. We fund enrichment programs and field trips, coordinate family events for the Burrell community and volunteer to support the school in many different ways.

PTO Mission Statement
The Burrell PTO is a Parent Teacher Organization committed to enriching the educational and social experience of Burrell School students and their families. The PTO exists to provide volunteer services and to raise funds that support students’ educational efforts and extracurricular activities.
Volunteer efforts range from a wide variety of in-school support services to coordinating Burrell's participation in family and community events. Each year an assortment of fund raising programs are offered so that families have choices in how they participate. Funds are used for enrichment programs, field trips, and school pride events as well as for other PTO approved expenses that benefit our school and community.
It is our intention to create a welcoming "Burrell Family" that encourages families to participate in both educational and social events that build pride in our school and in our community.
A weekly email blast is distributed via our PTO email network every Sunday night with updates of important school information, PTO events, and fundraisers. Notices of specific activities and events are attached.
If you are not already signed up for our email list, please contact Alisa Steel or submit a request using the form on the Contact Us page.
PTO meetings are normally held the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the cafeteria of the Burrell School. Please check the PTO Calendar posted on this site to confirm these dates. Reminder notices are sent out in advance via email. PTO meeting minutes are distributed via the PTO Google Email network the Sunday after each PTO meeting. The agenda and minute will also be archived on this website under "Meetings". A paper copy can be sent home via backpack upon request.
Come on out and join us for the evening, and find out what's happening.
