Parent Teacher Organization
You are a Member!
Membership in the PTO is automatic for faculty, staff, and families. The PTO is overseen by the Manager of Development Chris Gilliland and a co-chair from each division, Montessori and Prep. In addition, each class or grade within the school has one or more volunteer class/grade representatives.
You Can Help!
Barrie requests six volunteer hours per year, per family. Families may volunteer all at once or a few times per trimester, and hours can be fulfilled in many ways, including off-campus.
Participate as a Class/Grade Rep - Support the teachers and students directly by organizing classroom events and communicating with families. Specific grades are also in charge of different school-wide events.
Participate as a New Family Mentor – Welcome new families to Barrie. Volunteers are needed during the summer to reach out to families. Contact the Theresa Valois in the Admission Office to help.
Participate by starting a new group – Guest lecturers, pick-up basketball games, book clubs, running groups, scrap booking groups, etc. Barrie will supply the facilities and logistical support to get the word out.
